When Jordan Buranskas and her boyfriend Jack Mackercher from Chicago realized her purse was missing, they couldn’t agree on a possible location. So the couple checked through surveillance video set up in their Bucktown home to see if they could spot the missing purse.
“He thought I left it at the restaurant the night before. We actually got into a little bit of an argument about it,” Buranskas told WLS-TV.
But when the video hit the 3:30 a.m. mark, they saw something they didn’t bargain for.
Turns out a man had entered the residence through an unlocked door and was seen on the video at the top of the stairs, looking down to the floor below where the couple had fallen asleep on a couch.
Buranskas told the station: “He stood there for about 5 minutes the first time then walked away, then came back and hovered over us again for another 5 minutes.”
The couple believe the intruder got in via the building’s back fire escape and an unlocked sliding door that leads into the master bedroom. The only missing item was the purse, they added to WGN, and detectives are investigating.
The suspect is believed to be the “Creeper Ghost,” who’s apparently behind other neighborhood heists.
“If you want to come out here and steal, you’re going to be on video,” Mackercher said. He’s hopeful the “Creeper Ghost” will be caught.
