Robbery victims who live in a house say they’ve lost their sense of security and so much more.

They’ve since purchased an alarm system to keep safe.

“It's a sense of security and being safe at home that they’ve stolen along with our valuables,” says homeowner Tim Katona. 

The suspect is seen on their home surveillance video, strolling through the neighborhood before the burglary in November. The home was located near Haggerty and Ross.

“He stole six guns including a loaded gun, cash and family jewelry,” says Tim. 

The Katonas say two other neighbors have also been robbed and they’re hoping an arrest is made quickly. One neighbor also had two guns stolen. The suspect has also been seen leaving on foot. 

Police are urging people to lock windows and doors. They are also reminding people to be vigilant, but stressing there is no urgent danger to public safety.

If you have any information, call Van Buren Twp. Police right away.
