Britt-Cunningham provided News 2 with Ring camera footage that showed two men break into his home through the back door and steal his belongings.

An arrest warrant states that a viewer watching the news broadcast provided a tip to police, identifying one of the burglars in the video as 30-year-old Raymond Worden, Jr.

Metro police went to Worden’s apartment on Welch Road, where they searched the residence and recovered one of the guitars, a pedalboard and a black gun case, all stolen from Britt-Cunningham’s home, according to the police report.
