Busted on security cameras are words that have become very common in the news today.  Security cameras throughout the world are helping to provide evidence that is needed to bring perpetrators to justice.  Systems incorporating these surveillance cameras have become more affordable for home and business owners and allow users to really see what is happening at their home or business in real time, even over the internet from PDA devices like iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phones and more.

The latest news story showing the effectiveness of these tools, was a story about 2 men who decided to steal a trailer, go-cart and other items from a home.  Luckily, the homeowner had security cameras, because that helped identify the individuals so that they could be brought to justice.  In this case, the stoled items were also recovered!  See more about this news story

Chicago Novelty Shop Owner Fights Off Burglars with a Baseball Bat

 

Chicago store owner fights off burglars with a baseball bat, even after being shot.  The entire scene was caught on video from his business security cameras.

Even after being shot, Luis Quizhpe fought off the gunmen with a bat.

Luis Quizhpe owns a novelty shop in Chicago.  It wasn’t his first time being burglarized, but he reportedly heard one of the perpetrators say “kill them”, so he decided he was going to ‘go down swinging’.   He grabbed a baseball bat, and kept fighting off his attackers, making it less trouble for them to leave, which they did.  His family is certainly glad he fought back, because even though more than 10 shots rang out, only one of them landed, wounding his leg.  His family is thrilled to have him recovering in the hospital.  The entire episode was caught on his business security camera system.

Luis, we salut you and wish you a speedy recovery.

Man Caught Close-Up Burglarizing San Antonio Store

 

San Antonio Burglar Caught on Tape

This perpetrator was caught close-up on tape when he burglarized a store in San Antonio

A San Antonio businessman expanded his popular store in south San Atonio, Texas by opening a second location in East San Antonio.  Unfortunately, shortly after opening, the store was burglarized by at least one perpetrator.  When Tiger Marshal, the store proprietor opened the store, he quickly found that the burglar alarm had been disabled, the cash register had been emptied of $3000 and $80,000 of merchandise had been stolen.  Review of his security cameras revealed clear footage of the perpetrator in action.  He had broken into the store shortly after closing, vandalizing, destroying and ransacking the contents.  Though the perpetrator is still at large, he will probably have a hard time staying hidden with these face shots.

It is sad, but no business is safe from this type of illegal activity or losses.  Burglar alarms are great, but if they can be disabled from outside the building, then police are never called, and they can take their time cleaning out the store, like in this case.  Business security camera systems can help provide evidence when something happens.  Systems with remote viewing capabilities can even allow business owners to watch their business from home, so that if they get the dreaded call from the alarm company, they can quickly and easily check to see if it is a real or false alarm.  Help protect your business, keep it safe, and provide evidence to police when something occurs.  Find a Business Security Camera System to protect your business

 

 

Family Burglarized for 5th Time Catches Criminals on Camera

Wide video home security cameras are a great choice to show you What happens on your property, but are not always the best at delivering distinguishing characteristics to show the WHO.

Wide View Cameras show “What” happens

A family just outside Dallas in Garland, Texas has been victimized 5 times by burglars and theives.  Two of these occurences have reportedly happened within a two week span.  Joe Thompson, the homeowner, states that “this is really an indication of the times (we live in)”.  Unfortunately, he is right.  many people are victimized by thieves and burglars every day.

After previous burglaries, Joe and his family installed security cameras to help provide evidence if it were to happen again.  Luckily, this time, they did catch video of the individuals on their home security cameras, and are asking everyone to take a close look at the video (full video and newscast found here), and please call authorities if you recognize the individuals.  This latest theft has robbed them of thousands of dollars in tools, at a time when families cannot afford that type of loss.

When planning your home security camera system, we recommend using wideangle cameras like the one shown in this video to provide an overview of what happens on your property.  This gives you the “What” happened.  Then we recommend 1 or 2 cameras in key areas that are zoomed in to provide a better facial recognition of persons, so that you can see the “Who” and provide optimum evidence to police to help facilitate identification and hopefully capture of perpetrators.
