"After they destroyed two of the cameras, then they went into the house and at that time, they were trying to break the glass door and get in."

Cameras are all around Jones' home in the South Lawn neighborhood of Montgomery. Even though he wasn't there, he says he could see these people jump his backyard fence and attempt to break in at 11:30 a.m. You can see one of them holding a gun.
