CAMP SPRINGS, Ky. -- Scott Nelson and his 11-year-old son were on their way back from a Fourth of July outing when he got a notification on his phone that someone was at their house.

When he opened the app, he saw on surveillance video that someone was breaking in.

Now Campbell County police are searching for the two people recorded on Nelson's surveillance video.

When Nelson got home, he came across a man in his driveway.

He said he was "just kind of amazed that anybody would be brave enough to drive down here when there's only really one way out, and you have to drive through all these houses."

The two thieves got away with thousands of dollars in items, including a TV, Playstation 4, tablet and some cash, according to Nelson.

A few doors down, Nelson's grandparents' home was also broken into while they slept.

"Couldn't believe it," Richard Dietz said.

Dietz woke up after hearing a noise and saw a man sliding the door open.

"And I think, 'What the hell is he doing in here?'" Dietz said.

He said someone went through his wallet and medicine cabinet before getting away with some jewelry.

"They had plenty of nerve, that's for darn sure," Dietz said.

Other neighbors have also had their homes broken into, Nelson said.

"This is a very quiet, peaceful neighborhood," he said. "It's all my family around. Nothing like this has ever really happened before."

Campbell County police are still investigating the break-ins.
