Doggie Door Burglar

Great example of technology and social media teaming up to nail someone. The problem with security cameras has always been twofold...early versions did not show enough detail to be useful in identifying suspects, and, more importantly, no one was watching the cameras. The combination of jmontrose' excellent quality digital camera and Heights Yankee's army of moms (and, of course, ABC13 News) allowed the suspect's mug to actually be seen by many. A 24 hour turnaround is actually very quick.

And an apology goes out to Heights Yankee. I commented on another thread that is was unlikely that this guy in the Heights, since he was all the way down in Montrose. His arrest in the middle of the Heights makes my assumption clearly a mistaken one. Obviously, the use of the white van seen numerous times near burglary scenes means these guys are mobile.

Hope they catch him, security cams. Have come a long way, now they use motion sensors to activate and snap photos then. Even emailing them to you

I just noticed that right next door to the apartment complex that this guy lived at is a pawn shop. I would bet 10 bucks that at least some of his loot was pawned there. He may have traded some of it for crack, but it is also possible that he took some here. jmontrose, you should check it out. It is First Cash Pawn, 12320 Beechnut, near the corner of Beechnut and Cook.

It is worth a try. I have seen more than a few burglaries solved by the resident finding their pawned property themselves, and notifying the police once they found it. Good luck.
