KENNEWICK, Wash.--These people were definitely caught in the act. Two days before Christmas, two suspects stole four security cameras inside the Tri-Cities RV Park.
The surveillance cameras were used to keep an eye on those using the laundry room, restrooms as well as a maintenance storage room. A similar set of four cameras usually sells for around $300.00 dollars, according to police.
Apparently, the suspects were trying to trade in the cameras for Methamphetamine. Well, it seems like they got ahead of themselves and forgot to steal other important equipment as well.
"They did not take the device that does the recording of the footage so, in reviewing the footage, it plainly shows someone taking all four of the video cameras," says Detective John Davis, Kennewick police."
Detective Davis says one suspect is in custody. Two others have been identified. Three of the four cameras have been recovered by police. Davis also adds that theft of security cameras are pretty common especially to those dealing drugs. They usually want to see who is outside their home.
