WEST ALLIS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A West Allis couple is still processing a crime that took place at their home early Wednesday morning.

Jamie Serio was woken up by police banging on his door telling him something happened.

"We came out here, I noticed the garage door was up and my car was missing," he said.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video walking up to the family's garage, opening the door and going inside.

"It was unlocked, it was like they knew," he said. "They just opened the door and went right in."

Serio said the suspect went through his wife's car, broke the center console and then went across the garage into his car. Instead of using the garage door opener, the thief backed right through it.

"I don't understand why she didn't just push the button," he said. "It would've been a lot quieter for a cleaner getaway, less damage to the car, I don't know. I don't understand it."

In the process, the suspect left several things including a boot, earring and purse, but there wasn't an I.D.

Serio's car is a 2009 light green Subaru Outback. Anyone with information is asked to call police.

The thief looks drunk in the surveillance video. Classic Stallis. How did she start the car? Keys left in car? What type of homeowner has a security camera but leaves their garage door unlocked and their keys in the car?
