Police warn of criminals hiking into neighborhoods to break into homes

Anaheim police are warning people about a new tactic being used by criminals -- hiking into neighborhoods to steal valuables from homes.

The Anaheim Police Department put out a simulation video showing how these criminals are doing it.

The burglars are dropped off near a trail, they carry their tools with them, and break into homes taking jewelry, expensive purses, and small expensive items.

Then, they hike back to a waiting SUV and get away.

If you see anyone suspicious on a trail, contact police immediately.
