Summer Mancini said her boyfriend, Steve Shinkle, was visiting her in Florida when he got an alert that the cameras inside his apartment were activated.

Mancini said they believe the man captured on the video is a man Shinkle hired recently to do electrical work, Michael Lucosh Jr. Police also said they also have information indicating the same.

Lucosh Jr. and his father were recently charged with installing a fake water heater inside a customer’s home, then stealing checks and a credit card. Lucosh’s father was taken to jail, but police could not find Lucosh Jr.
