They donned “black ninja suits,” went to a swanky 8,000-square-foot house in a high-end Florida neighborhood and waited for the owners to come home.
That’s where these weapon-wielding men confronted Bill Kitchen and Camilo Espinol on Wednesday night. And when the suspects met the homeowners in the garage, they tied their hands behind their backs and forced them to point out valuables inside the $1.2 million home in Windermere, WKMG-TV reported. The homeowners had no choice but to watch helplessly as the heist unfolded.
Once inside the home, the couple’s security cameras captured the ninja-dressed robbers.
“Our home security shows me (hands bound behind me) in the office, pointing out the valuables. Camilo is sitting, also bound, with his head in a pillow case. One of the three robbers (in black Ninja suits) found Camilo’s hat, and is wearing it. In the second pic, the robber sees the video camera,” Kitchen wrote on Facebook, according to WKMG.
“We were asked to produce all money, jewelry and valuables. For an hour they ransacked the house,” WFTV-TV reported of Kitchen’s post.

Police are still conducting an investigation while the robbers remain at large.
The couple’s stolen car was later found close to their home.
