Cops Use Surveillance Video to Make a Cold Case Sizzle

moskowitz_arrest2Police were able to make an arrest in a cold case after a local news station aired enhanced surveillance video captured at the scene of the crime.

Earlier this year, police enhanced surveillance video of the alleged suspect in a “PITT” sweatshirt with a woman wearing distinctive glasses. After NBC4 aired the report in October, someone recognized the woman in the video and contacted police. From that information, investigators were able to make an arrest contingent on the surveillance tape evidence.

This is not the first time that this tactic has worked; this was the third in a series of high-profile cold case arrests by the District Police within the past two years. The other two arrests were in the Chandra Levy murder case and the Shakita Bell case. Airing this surveillance tape really made the difference between another cold case, and an actual arrest.
