A burglary suspect who was seen on home video surveillance footage creeping around a Texas home and staring at a sleeping infant is being sought by sheriff's deputies.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Houston released a video on Youtube Tuesday that officials say shows an intruder shining a flashlight in rooms inside a home. In some segments the suspect is clearly visible as he stares into a crib with a sleeping baby.

The homeowner told deputies a neighbor alerted him to a laptop computer and a briefcase found in the neighbor's yard that were in his home the night before. Sixty dollars in cash were also reported missing from a wallet.

Officers responded to the incident on April 5.

The sheriff's office described the suspect as a Hispanic male, 16 to 18 years old, who was wearing a New Era baseball cap with a San Antonio Spurs logo on the brim.

People with information about the suspect’s identity are asked to call Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS.
