Common Sense Lesson #155

securityCamera.jpgThis is just fantastic. Four men have been accused of stealing over fifty grand of video equipment last month from two companies that are in the same building. Cops were able to determine how the burglars busted in (broken window), what they took (computer and electronic equipment) and even who one of the criminals was, thanks to high-definition surveillance video obtained from one of the burgled companies.

The common sense lesson here? Don’t steal from a video surveillance store!

That’s right, one of the companies these nitwits jacked was Vigilant Video. As if the name wasn’t, you know, a dead giveaway, the cops said that “the video camera that caught them was sitting in plain view.” Genius.
