Steele Creek residents react after suspicious characters seen checking car doors

"We just don't need that activity and my message to those kids is find somewhere else to go or find something else to do," said Curtis Watson. 

Watson is talking about surveillance video making the rounds in the Hunters Landing Drive area of the Steele Creek Neighborhood.  A handful of what appears to be juveniles going from driveway to driveway.

"They were just racing through the neighborhood checking to see which cars were unlocked. If they were, they were probably taking anything you had in there," said Josh Bailey.

The video shows the group in the middle of the cul-de-sac coming back together.

The video was captured on Bailey's Nest Hello Video Doorbell just before 4 a.m. and after a quick check, he says nothing came up missing last night. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police did not have any reports of disturbances and crime maps stats show only one suspicious person report in the last month

Although no crimes were reported, Bailey wants those in the video to be put on notice.

"Don't let this be a gateway to something worse. It is still bad what you're doing," he said. 

"I am the unofficial cul-de-sac police here. I am up at all times of the night and certainly I wouldn't want to see this," Watson said.
