A home surveillance system captured photos of three boys, believed to be 12 or 13 years old, who are suspected of burglarizing the residence.

Sacramento police released the photos Wednesday in the hope someone will be able to identify the youths.

The break-in occurred April 22 in the 2300 block of 68th Avenue. As the three youths approached the residence, they were photographed by the home’s surveillance system. The boys entered the home and took property from inside before leaving on foot, according to a Police Department news release.

All three are described as African American, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. All were wearing dark-colored pants or shorts. One was wearing a purple sweatshirt, another was wearing a black sweatshirt and the third was wearing a white sweatshirt with an “Aeropostale” logo, according to the news release.

Anyone with information about the youths or the burglary are asked to call the Sacramento Police Department’s dispatch center at 916-264-5471 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers, 916-443-4357, or submit an anonymous tip using the free “P3 Tips” smartphone app. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
