Worst Thieves Ever: Virginia Men Steal Security Cameras and Leave Incriminating Tape

You know the problem with stealing security cameras? Being videotaped stealing the security cameras. Of course, some officers appear to forget about that dimension of destroying or stealing cameras.

This is one of the culprits who stole a security camera in Newport News, Virginia outside of the Second Baptist Church.

By the way, the police have stated “if you have any information, contact Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.” Lock-u-up? That would seem a rather odd choice for a witty number since the caller could view himself as the operative “you” as the one dialing the number. If so, he would be presumably giving information against himself. On the other hand, these are the only thieves who might respond to that pitch.

  5. A couple of local businesses have added a line to the usual, “Premises are being videotaped at all times.” The added line reads, “recordings are maintained and stored off the premises.”
