    Days before two men were caught on surveillance video breaking into someone’s home, Tawonna Wesley said they came to her house.

    “I thought they were legit,” Wesley said.

    They rang her doorbell and she said she went outside to talk to them about her recycle bin.

    She says her daughter thought it was suspicious, so she took cellphone video of their interaction.

    “I talked to him for a minute and he left and went to the next house and the next house,” Wesley said.

    Then she saw that the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office was looking for suspects who looked just like this wearing neon vests, a red hat and driving in a silver Toyota Camry.

    “I looked and those were the same guys,” Wesley said.

    A woman, who didn’t want to reveal her identity, said it was her neighbor’s home that was broken into.

    “He’s like somebody just kicked my door. It’s just not what you expect when you get home,” the woman said.

    Police said the suspects were involved in home burglaries where they got in through the front door and they have been wearing safety vests.

    “For someone to come and knock on your door thinking you’re probably going to get help and then you get robbed it’s mind blowing,” a woman said.

    Police said the suspects are seen driving a silver Toyota Camry and Red Nissan Rogue.
