‘Stupid’ thieves caught on crystal clear video stealing from Livonia camera store

LIVONIA, Mich. – A trio of thieves were caught on crystal-clear surveillance video stealing a charger from a Livonia store that sells high-definition cameras, police said.

“I think they were a little dumb, really, really,” store manager Emma Sakowski said.

PROCAM in Livonia is a mecca for video fanatics. It is filled with all the lights, gadgets and cameras designed for sale and protection.

“We have two systems operating outdoors, indoors, night and day,” Sakowski said. “I mean, we’re a camera store, so why wouldn’t we have the best?”

The store was targeted on Monday by thieves who tried to appear harmless, according to Sakowski.

“They asked about some chargers,” Sakowski said. “I asked one of my employees to go over there and show them some chargers.”

But the trio had other plans, running towards a getaway car with a stolen charger, police said.

“We turned our backs for a second to watch something else they asked for and they kind of took off,” Sakowski said. “Why a charger and why a camera store? We literally have cameras all over this place, so it makes no sense why they would.”

“If they’re ready to steal one thing, who are they going to steal from next?” asked Sakowski. “What are they going to steal next?” »

Police said thanks to the clear video showing the thieves, there should be no next time.
