Apprehension: Not the Brightest Bulb in the Box

AdpearanceArrests & Apprehensions

Who: Operator Mike and Seattle PD

What: One suspected burglar in custody

When: March 10, 2013 at 2 p.m.

Where: A construction jobsite in Des Moines, WA.

How: Mike received motion viewer activations from the construction site and used verified video surveillance to view a man walking up the stairs and unscrewing a light bulb on the stair rail, likely as an attempt to prevent cameras from getting a good look at him. His plans backfired, however, and Mike dispatched police as soon as he saw the man on site. Seattle PD responded quickly and apprehended one suspect.
