A burglar got into a Heath, Texas home using a doggy door located in the back of the home, and the whole incident was recorded on surveillance video, according to CBS Dallas.

Fortunately the only ones home during the break-in were the family's two sleeping dogs.

"I was really angry that he was there, and just praying that he didn't do anything to hurt the dogs that were here because they are our family," said homeowner Jeff Summers.

Summers turned the surveillance video over to police.

"It's very uncommon to see someone enter a house through a doggy door," said Sgt. Brandon Seery with the Heath Department of Public Safety. "He made his way into the bathroom. That's where he stole some prescription medication."

Police posted the video online and received a tip that led to the suspect and investigators are currently preparing warrants for his arrest.

To make things even weirder, the burglar came back to the home to apologize.

"The doorbell rang around 2:30 p.m., and it was him [the burglar] standing at the front door wanting to apologize." said Summers, who told CBS Dallas he accepted the apology. "He handed me this letter."

In the letter, the suspect apologizes. Police are telling the public to make sure their doggy doors are only big enough for their pets.
