Read no further, the story here is in the title, a thief, in Bakersfield, California was caught by a hospital security camera as he was stealing the camera. The surveillance camera was able to capture a full picture of the man’s face as he stole the camera to take home for his own use.
The local police officers are attributing this crime to a crime wave in the area of thieves stealing cameras to install in their own homes. According to the local police detective, Scott Miller, many criminals will use security cameras in their homes in order to receive advance warning should the police show up at their house.
The Bakersfield police haven’t been able to identify the thief yet, but the authorities have gone public with the photo (Huffington Post, 2012).
