Piotr Pasciak loved the advances
in hi-tech cameras, but now
he's not so sure.
Nobody saw anything, and the door had not been forced open.
Mr. Lee set up a video surveillance camera called Dropcam, a wireless camera that stores high definition video online.
Seven weeks later, the burglar burgled again, and Mr. Lee brought his video evidence to police, with a very clear shot of the burglar.
Said Mr. Lee:
“The police saw the video and thought it was hilarious. They said it’s very rare for a private citizen to have surveillance video in their apartment.”After releasing the video to the media, 24-year-old Piotr Pasciak, who'd been imprisoned for a previous burglary, was found and arrested.
It was three days after the burglary.
