The security camera video showed the vehicle stop in front of the family's home on Rhodes St. His wife got out of the car to check the mail and left the driver's side door open.

While she was at the mailbox with her back turned, a man wearing a white shirt, a tan beanie, and a gray bike backpack, stole the SUV with their two young children in the back.
