It's video many of you are sharing on social media: Three teenagers caught on camera breaking into a South Tampa home.
It’s not a security system. Homeowner Yina Brown said it is an at home security camera called a Canary.
The camera clearly showed three teens break into the South Tampa home and make their way to the bedrooms.
“You feel like your privacy and your comfort zone has been violated,” Brown said. 
A 16-year-old boy has been taken into custody to face charges for the break-in. Tampa police are asking for the public's help to locate the other two responsible. 
It is 11:15 a.m. Monday when Brown gets a phone notification.
She opens the Canary app and watches in disbelief as three young men rummage through her home.
Brown immediately presses a button on her phone to sound the alarm. When it goes off, the burglars quickly leave.
The only thing they grab is Brown’s husband's $300 iPad.
 “You think that your house is that safe place you go to every night, and I just don’t feel like that anymore," Brown said.
The video posted on YouTube is what helped Tampa police officers catch a 16-year-old, they police said was the youngest of the trio.
ABC Action News is not naming the teenager because of his age, but he is facing felony burglary and grand theft charges.
With the other teens on the loose, Brown said she hasn’t slept in days and doesn’t feel safe at home. She hopes they will be caught soon.
“Yesterday when I left work, my husband wasn’t there and i just went to my friend's house, just waiting for my husband to get home,”
She believes her at home alarm security camera stopped the teens from targeting someone else. 
“They were probably going to break into more houses that day," Brown said.
Brown and her husband have since installed a security system, adding extra security and peace of mind.
