It's video that makes Heather Blanken sick to her stomach.

Blanken adds, "You stole not only from us, but from my children."

7 a.m Tuesday morning, Blanken's husband went to warm up his Tahoe.

Blanken adds, "Got his jacket, game me a kiss, and caught a quick highlight of the Alabama game."

It all took just 8 minutes.

Blanken says, "That's when I hear, hey. I've never heard him scream that loud until every single neighbor was out front."

The Blanken's 2003 Tahoe was gone, along with their stroller, and $1,300-3,000 worth of golf clubs.

Libby Burris, says, "They stole my granddaugher's car seat, and we're supposed to what, just stand their and look? I don't think so."

No, this family is taking matters into their own hands.

Blanken adds, "It looks like a female on video."

You actually can see a car slow down when they drive by Blanken's home.

They then turn around, and drive by it again.

Blanken says, "My theory is that they dropped someone off down there."

Then you can see from the video, a car pulls into a nearby parking lot.

Someone gets out, grabs their cell phone, then starts running to Blanken's SUV.

Blanken adds, "It's hard earned money, saved all year, just gone."

It appears the suspect was wearing black leggings, white boots, and a dark colored jacket with a hat.

Burris says, "They better hope to God the police get to them before I do."

These passionate parents say their SUV and sense of security may be gone, but are confident not for long.

Burris adds, "You better watch out because I'm going to beat your [expletive] when I find you."

The Blanken's tell us they do have insurance, but they do not know how much of their SUV is covered.

East Ridge Police say they are investigating the theft, and currently reviewing the surveillance video.
