SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Surveillance video a man pushing a shopping cart stuffed with his valuables in a Nestor neighborhood, after he broke into nearby home.

Just off Elm Avenue, Dave and his wife returned home from work last Tuesday night around 6pm.

"Just felt violated, hurt and upset," said Dave.

Just before noon, a neighbor's surveillance video shows three people - one on a bike - going up and down an alley that dead-ends at Dave's home.  The man on the bike then ditches it in favor of an empty grocery cart, which he pushes out of camera range toward Dave's home.

"They broke into the house and shed," said Dave.

Dave believes the burglars may have forced open a window and then zeroed in on pricey tools, electronics and valuables.  Dave says anything in his house that could hold anything - including grocery bags and suitcases, were packed with his things, and then tossed into a shopping cart.  Some three hours later, the man is seen wheeling out the packed cart.

"I recognize the tools, suitcases and my fishing poles," said Dave.

So stuffed is that cart, he has trouble moving it.  He finally does push it out of the alley.

"Makes me sick to my stomach.  Just so blatant, so disrespectful," said Dave.

Among the missing items are nine Invicta watches given to him by his wife on special occasions.  In all, his losses are valued at about $15,000.
