NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. -- Pasco County investigators have released surveillance video showing two men breaking into a New Port Richey home, stealing electronics and backpacks.

The video shows the unknown suspects scoping out the home on Irene Loop at 4 a.m., then returning a couple hours later to break inside.

ABC Action News has learned, they got away with a Playstation, Nintendo Switch and two backpacks.

"Sad, really sad," said one of the victims, 9-year-old Jurgen.

Jurgen's family came home from a weekend getaway in South Florida to find a window smashed and their stuff stolen.

Fresh into the fourth grade, Jurgen didn't imagine starting the new school year like this.

"I want my stuff back and to never get robbed," he said.
