CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Neighbors want police to catch up with a pair who went through their Montclaire community looking into cars, checking for valuables apparently to steal. It happened Monday around 5 a.m. on Wensley Drive.
 
Both of the men were wearing hooded shirts and ski masks.
 
In surveillance video taken from the outside of one of the houses, you can see the men shining flashlights into cars and walking up pulling on car handles. At one point the motion lights go off at one house and the men continue to check cars without speeding up.
 
"They went to the neighbor’s house.  They went to their driveway and then looked in there... they're just testing doors," said Michael DiRenzo, whose cameras captured the figures Monday morning. "It’s scary, we have children.  It’s fortunate for us they didn't break into our car they could have broken into our home."
 
Neighbors said it appeared the men left empty handed, but residents want to make sure they don't return. They credit their homeowners association with keeping them aware of what's going and steps they need to take to make sure they are safe.

"We have a great homeowners association, great awareness.  Everyone watches over everyone else's houses," said DiRenzo.
 
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police want anyone with information about the two men to give them a call at 704-336-6000.
