Criminal Paradox When Thieves Lift Security Cameras
They may have planned for days, weeks, or likely just minutes for this caper. And who knows whether the intent was to simply steal some nice cameras or if this was merely step-one of a more sinister plan to disable the surveillance system for a future heist? It's veritable criminal genius, except the cameras did their duty during their last few looks and photographed their own theft.
Those may be some of the questions deputies ask the two men the cameras captured in their last moments before going blank on monitor screens: What the heck were you planning?
The falling cameras also captured an image of their truck, a Dodge Dually 3500 with aftermarket rims and running boards. It's a common kind of truck around here, but one that undoubtedly stands out too with its single cab and custom features.
This all took place April 25th at a business on Hwy 90 in Sulphur. The complainant told CPSO deputies the cameras were two of the ARLO type.
