Sandra Yi ReportingTwo different sets of robbers hit the same South Jordan office complex within days of each other, but good surveillance video may help catch the criminals. The thefts happened at the Riverpark Two Office Complex. One happened on May 9th, the other on May 13th. Police have good pictures of both suspects. A video camera caught them in the act.

Sophia Bean: "They were hanging out in front of the building, and I could tell something was going on, but I didn't really know. I didn't want to jump to conclusions."

But her suspicions were right. The next day Sophia Bean, who works on the first floor, found out the men she saw were burglary suspects.

Det. Tim Prince, South Jordan Police Dept.: "It sounded like they knew exactly what they wanted to do for that part of the case. They hung out for a long time, which I think is a substantial risk, considering the surveillance system they had there."

Police say the pictures are some of the best they've ever seen. The two suspects were caught on tape stealing a sofa and end table from the building's front lobby. One suspect even looked into the camera before trying to cover it up.

Sophia Bean: "That was stupid, but they put gum on the surveillance."

Four days later surveillance video captured another man, stealing four laptops from a third floor office. He was brazen, committing his crime in the middle of the day.

Sophia Bean: "That's pretty scary because they can walk into our building, in our offices, and take stuff."

Someone also stole a rug and painting from the building lobby in February. Police don't know if that case is connected to either of these two. If you have any information, call the South Jordan Police Department.
