NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Police are searching for two men who were caught on camera breaking into a South Florida home and taking off with thousands of dollars in cash and valuables, Friday night.

According to homeowner Guerdie Pierre, who lives in the Northeast Miami-Dade residence with her husband, five children and their grandmother, said her home was burglarized Friday night while most of them were at the Dade County Fair. "They were inside the house for at least 30 minutes," she said.

Pierre said the perpetrators broke in through a front window, but surveillance video captured them coming in and out of a side door and window multiple times. Grainy surveillance footage captured the subjects' faces as they moved throughout the house. One of the suspects could be seen wearing a bandanna, while the other appeared to have on a baseball cap. At one point, the video shows one of the subjects dropping what looks like a gun and then quickly picking it back up.

Pierre said the men ransacked the home, stealing jewelry, tablets, laptops and expensive purses. "They went through the bathroom door," she said. "Look at my closet. They took all my jewelry, my wedding rings, everything. They took everything, my computer, iPads. I was like, 'Look what somebody did to my house.'"

According to the homeowner, the burglars kicked open her son's bedroom door. "They took his shoes, they took his piggy bank, his money that we was trying to save, you know, for his birthday," she said. "He said he had approximately $200 inside the piggy bank, so they took his money."

The family's eldest daughter, who asked not to be identified, was the first resident to come home. "I was kind of shaken because these people were in our home, and what if my grandmother was here?" she said. "They had guns, and they could have shot her."

Pierre said at one point a neighbor spotted the suspects, who then attempted to hide behind one of the posts located in the front porch of the house to avoid being seen.

Pierre said she no longer feels safe. "They can come to your house any day, anytime," she said. "Nobody prepares you for that."

The investigation continues.

If you have any information on this burglary, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward.
