RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. - Authorities said a thief stole from a veterinary surgeon doing non-profit work at the Helen Woodward Animal Center and the incident was caught on tape.
The doctor was performing life saving emergency surgery on a horse with colic at the Rancho Santa Fe center, when someone broke into his car and stole a laptop, personal items and banking information, according to police.
"He's been here for 25 years … Helen Woodward Animal Center has been here for 40 years ... and we've never had something like this happen," said spokesperson Mindy Wright.
The video shows two clear shots of the thief and a third of the man running off.
"You see him walk in front of our administration building and then you see the same person walk , then run behind the building with what looks like something in their arms," explained Wright.
Police have not made any arrests.
