TOWN BLUFF – In a recent report from area Crime Stoppers, the organization shared surveillance footage of a burglary in progress in Town Bluff.

Crime Stoppers recently released a PSA about live streaming, off-site recording that accompanied a recent case that was solved from a security camera’s feed. In the report of the Town Bluff burglary, Crime Stoppers posted a video of two White male suspects inside of a home in the Camper’s Cove community. Both suspects in the footage have on face masks. What links the video to the earlier Crime Stoppers solved case is that one of the subjects on the footage is shown stopping the camera, and subsequently absconding with it.

The suspects “attempted to conceal their crime by taking a camera,” the report read.

The thieves were able to get away with a John Deere riding mower; two televisions; radios; hand tools and Dr Pepper and liquor.

According to Crime Stoppers, whenever someone looks at a security camera lens, the image is simultaneously recorded and broadcast to the camera owner’s phone, as well as several federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, CIA and NSA.

“So, when you look directly into the camera while burglarizing a house, your image is captured even if you steal the camera,” Crime Stoppers stated in a post.

Crime Stoppers encourages anyone who can identify the burglars in the video, or anyone who knows of the stolen property, to submit a tip through 639TIPS.com, or through the Crime Stoppers app (639TIPS.com/app). Tipsters can also call the Crime Stoppers Tipline, 936-639-TIPS.

Tips and calls directly to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and anonymous, crime-solving tips are eligible for cash rewards. With Crime Stoppers, the entire process, from tip to reward, is handled without identifying the tipster.
