First, hi everyone! I used to be a regular on this forum, but life happened.
Earlier this week, a neighbor in my community had her purse stolen out of her car when she ran in her house to grab something. Another neighbor caught the vehicle on camera, but his system was only good enough to tell that it was a black mini-van. He posted a request on Nextdoor asking neighbors in the community to check if they have any additional video footage around the time saw the mini-van.
I took a look at my video cameras which my Blink cameras are supplemental to my wired cameras. I have some my Blink cameras mounted to my fence which runs along the alley. I checked my Blink cameras, and not only did I see the black mini-van, but I got a license plate number!
I sent the videos to the police detective. He gave me a call the next day and told me that they were the best videos he has ever gotten. He told me he never gets video this clear and information to solve a crime. One of my wired cameras caught the van stopping in the alley a few houses down, and a guy getting out and running to the garage, but that video wasn’t helpful to find who committed the crime. It was my Blink cameras that captured a great picture of the vehicle, license plate, and information about the driver of the minivan. Thank you, Blink!
