LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT/KARK) -

Vehicle break-ins have been a regular occurrence for one Little Rock neighborhood.

But according to KARK, the crime has taken a terrifying step further.

Almost weekly car break-ins reported by neighbors in the Heights. Now clusters of cameras can be spotted around the neighborhood. 

Most recently, a home security system captured two young men on a family's property. 

According to police, they went inside the home while the family was sleeping, took a MacBook laptop, and the car keys to two vehicles. 

They took off in the stolen cars. 

One of the men was holding a small revolver.
