MIAMI (WSVN) - Surveillance video captured three men stealing a gun from a victim’s car parked outside of his apartment in Miami.

According to police, the victim parked his van outside of his apartment building, located in the area of Northwest 57th Avenue and Third Street, at approximately 7 p.m. on April 25.

He returned to his vehicle the following morning to find it had been ransacked before calling police.

Officials reviewed surveillance footage from the parking lot where three men could be seen walking in at around 1:45 a.m. before splitting up and looking into several cars.

A few minutes later, one of the suspects could been seen opening the victim’s van door and making his way inside.
