Valerie Bertinelli catches would-be burglars on camera after local robberies

Valerie Bertinelli caught a pair of would-be burglars on her home security cameras Wednesday.

The actress shared the footage on her Instagram Story and told her 1.1 million followers that she called 911 to report the two men who lurked outside her California house in the early hours of the morning.

“We’ve had a string of robberies in my neighborhood, my next-door neighbor included,” Bertinelli, 62, wrote.

“This is one of the men that came to scope out my house last night,” she captioned a video time-stamped 1:14 a.m. “I think he stopped because he sees my camera lit up. The other one came an hour before him. F–king scary.”

In the footage, the second man is seen walking halfway up the “One Day at a Time” alum’s driveway while carrying multiple bags, including a backpack, before stopping dead in his tracks and looking around. He then turns around and leaves the property.

Bertinelli shared a photo of the first guy in another post, showing him walking away from her home while also wearing a backpack.

“The police came pretty quickly and checked around the houses,” she shared.

The Food Network host assured her fans that she plans to install “more motion detector lights” and is also “thinking of putting barbed wire on [her] front fence.” She also explained that she sets an alarm on her home “every night” before going to bed.

Bertinelli has a 31-year-old son, Wolfgang, whom she shared with her late ex-husband, Eddie Van Halen. She finalized her divorce from her second husband, Tom Vitale, last month.
