    Neighbors in North Dallas are banding together to stop a rash of break-ins. Using social media, they've connected, informed each other and remain vigilant.

    “We keep calling each other, 'have you heard or seen anything?' We’re all just being totally aware,” said resident Helena Glazer.

    Neighbors in North Dallas are banding together to stop a rash of break-ins. Using social media, they've connected, informed each other and remain vigilant.

    They report at least six break-ins within the last month, and Dallas police are looking into the reports.

    In one alleged incident, a security camera at Ryan Kelly's home caught a man casing his back door.

    Moments later, the man is seen breaking into the house. The door swings open, the alarm goes off and the man runs away.

    Now, signs have been posted in the neighborhood showing the man's face.

    "I think it was just scary, because you know it's in the middle of the day. My family could have been there," Kelly said. "Just kind of unnerving to think that someone could have been sneaking through your house and stealing things."

    Neighbors said the burglaries have taken place in broad daylight.

    Joan Muser found out she wasn't the only break-in to take place in the last month. She lives on the other side of Midway Road, not far from Kelly.

    "I have more concern now than I did then, because of all the other break-ins. And it's all in this same area, so it's really scary," said Muser.

    The burglar in her break-in was able to get away with a flat screen TV and part of her sound system.

    Dallas police said Wednesday that the man may be responsible for several other home burglaries in the neighborhood including the following:

    • June 25, burglary, 3900 block of Crown Shore
    • July 6, burglary, 3900 block of Crown Shore
    • July 18, burglary, 4800 block of Forest Bend
    • July 31, criminal mischief, 4300 block of Mill Creek
    • Aug. 2, burglary, 4800 block of Harvest Hill
    • Aug. 4, burglary, 4000 block of S. Better

    Investigators said they are working any and all possible leaders and urge anyone who recognizes the man to call Dallas police immediately.
