A man was caught on camera breaking into a car in broad daylight by two cameras, one inside the car and the other on the street.

A broken car window, leaving shards of glass scattered pell-mell on the ground, brought detectives to the scene to investigate who was responsible.

The scene was discovered on the 1500 block of Gordon Drive in Naples, Sunday.

Law enforcement told WINK News they are looking for the man responsible for the brazen car burglary.

Naples Police detectives continue to look for the suspect, who was seen on one video pulling up on his bike, slowly walking toward a parked car, peeking in the windows, where his face was clearly caught by a camera inside the car, before he suddenly broke a back window.

Then, the presumed thief can be seen reaching inside the car, grabbing and putting on a backpack from the back seat and rides off on his bike, seemingly unaware two cameras recorded it all as it unfolded.

Call Naples Police if you recognize the suspect.
