Home surveillance cameras caught an unusual entry into a home by one burglar.

Memphis Police said a man maneuvered himself through a doggy door before stealing prescription pills from the home.

Tom Southwell lives a few houses down from where the doggy door burglar struck this weekend.

“The weakest link in the chain is going to be the one they go to," Southwell said.

Doggy doors aren’t big enough for his Great Dane, Blue, but Southwell said he is aware of the recent burglaries in the area near Walnut Grove and Mendenhall.

“Unfortunately, crime does not know any boundaries; If you're in the suburbs, if you're in the middle of the city," Southwell said.

The owner of the home did not want to speak on camera, but said the cops helped set up the surveillance.

The photos of the man posted on Facebook by law enforcement may have done well. The suspect has reportedly agreed to turn himself in.
