screenshot_03Superheros are a thing of the past- with cutting edge technology, you can become your own vigilante. After a series of approximately 30 break-ins in a period of only 2 weeks, a criminal was caught on a home video tape by a local resident, Pam Trickey. The sunlit, warm, and welcoming town turned into a much darker reality- one that she wanted to catch on tape. Authorities are hopeful that this new footage will help them catch the burglar. The picture identification is a vital part of the investigation that was missing prior to this major breakthrough. Trickey, bought surveillance cameras to catch the person who vandalized her car, instead she got the burglar responsible for other neighborhood car break-ins.
