The latest case happened in Magnolia Thursday morning. The surveillance video shows the woman leaving a child in the front seat of a car to wait while she's apparently committing the crime.

"Just the ease of which she was able to break into our door and into our building, that was scary," said Lisa Walker, who lives in the Magnolia condo complex that was targeted around 2:30 a.m.
"It was so brazen! She looked at the cameras. We've got full-on video of her, but she just kept going. She just had a screwdriver," Walker said.
The woman drove into their carport, walked to the door and pulled the tool out of her purse.
"Extremely quick. It was less than three seconds. She was able to pop in the screwdriver and opened up the door," Walker said.
Once in, you can see the woman spot a key on the bulletin board and appears to use it to try and access mailboxes.
"When that didn't work she went in the building a little farther up some stairs down the hallway to see if there were any packages. When there weren't any packages she left the building," Walker said.
And get this -- in the video, it looks like the woman wasn't alone.
"It was crazy! And then to see the baby in the car," Walker said.
