Police are still on the hunt for a burglar allegedly snapped in the act on a home security system.

The man was caught on security cameras appearing to burgle Kerris and Chris Browne's Rotorua property - which had been broken into four times in the past three weeks.

The Brownes installed a $7000 security system on Friday last week after the first three break-ins at their Rotorua farm stay on Clayton Rd.

Overnight on Saturday the cameras recorded a man apparently stealing a diary with $600 cash from inside their home.

The pair had earlier posted the security camera footage on social media and in the Rotorua Daily Post.

They have also posted flyers around the city hoping someone would know who he is.

Rotorua police crime prevention manager Inspector Brendon Keenan said today they were still looking for help from the public and no one had yet been arrested.
