Police searching for armed robber seen stealing from yard worker in broad daylight

Police are searching for an armed robber caught on home surveillance video stealing from a lawn care worker in broad daylight at a northwest Houston home.

Private video doorbell company Ring recorded the video of the incident July 23 near Du Barry Lane and East TC Jester. The unknown suspect can be seen running toward the lawn care worker with a gun drawn before he swoops down to pick up the leaf blower. He then flees the scene in a car parked on the other side of the street.

He was upset when the $400 blower was stolen while he was "just trying to make an honest living." He said he hopes the gunman is caught so that he is not able to hurt anyone else.
