Cops nab copper thief, thanks to CV monitoring

copper-thief-12-13-14Retail shopping centers are especially busy this time of year, but the customers entering through the front doors aren’t the only people shopping for something shiny this holiday season.

On December 13, 2014, at approximately 8:20 p.m., a Centralized Vision Operating Tech observed two suspicious males arrive on bikes at a retail shopping center in Phoenix, AZ. The men proceeded to the rear of the center and approached several secure boxes containing copper wiring and attempted to open them. The CV tech notified the authorities and Phoenix Police was dispatched to investigate. The officers arrived and located the two trespassers hiding behind a block wall. One suspect was immediately arrested.

And that’s one less Grinch roaming the streets. Watch the video here.
