A home break-in in Killeen was caught on security camera video.

LaToya Holland came home to find her door smashed in and her son's PlayStation 4, games and laptop gone. 

"It's just like *shivers*... somebody's been in here and we don't even know who it was," LaToya Holland said. 

Holland says she came in through the garage door to find her children's bedroom lights on and the back door wide open.

"I was immediately startled and scared... and I'm thinking Oh my gosh somebody's in my house. So, I backed right back out through the garage door and I called the police," Holland added. 

Security footage shows a truck pull up across the street and a man get out and head to Holland's front door.

"I'm thinking he was trying to see was somebody in here," Holland said. 

After a minute or two, the cameras catch the man walking back to the truck, grabbing a backpack... and as he heads back toward the house, the truck pulling away. 

"He walks straight through the yard and comes to that back door, and he pushes all his weight with his shoulder on my back door three times, the third time he got in," Holland added.  

Now, after living in Killeen since 1994, Holland says her family is looking for a new place to call home. 

"We've been pondering moving anyway, but now it's like, both of my kids are like, okay we're ready to go," Holland said.
