SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Spartanburg County man put up a deer cam to catch an alleged thief who he said has stolen metal from his property multiple times.

Jody Clary said after thieves hit his garage, he put up the camera and then captured a man tearing off the metal roof off the garage.

"This used to be a full, tin roof; they've stripped it down in five days, most of it yesterday," said Clary.

The surveillance was captured Wednesday morning and shows a bearded, shirtless man taking thousands of dollars worth of metal. Clary's home and garage sit in a secluded, wooded area that were left to him by his father who died in 2002.

SLIDESHOW: Metal theft caught on camera

Since then, Clary said he has dealt with thieves looking for scrap to sell, but until this week, he had tried everything to catch them, even spending a night in the woods.

"They are sneaky, they have learned my schedule and you just can't out run them without the spy cams," said Clary.

Besides the stolen metal, Clary said they have spraypainted graffiti and left broken glass and trash on his property. He said the damage to his shed is approximately $150,000.

Now Clary said he needs help identifying the suspect clearly seen on the video.

Spartanburg County deputies ask anyone who can identify the man caught on tape to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC.
