Security Camera Catches What Steve Wyatt Hoped to Never See

On March 22, 2017 By admin

On the streets of Newport News, Virginia, residents are becoming a little too familiar with being victims of crime. According to Movoto Real Estate, this city was ranked the 10th most dangerous city in Virginia. Residents such as Steve Wyatt need to know what they can do to protect themselves from frequent crime.

Wyatt felt a sense of urgency to set up protection for his family. Their cars had been broken into twice in 2016 even with basic precautions like hiding belongings in the car and locking the doors.

“You feel absolutely violated,” Wyatt described. To try to avoid that feeling again, he decided to install home security cameras. He had them setup to monitor his vehicles and entrances to his home.

Unfortunately, Wyatt’s fears were realized when yet again a criminal targeted his vehicle to break into. However, this criminal had no clue that he was actually being watched. Wyatt has now taken that security camera footage with the man’s face clearly visible, and distributed it to news stations and police stations all across his area. As they show this video to the public, someone is bound to recognize the criminal and hopefully turn him in.

“The worst part is having kids and worrying about them. The one whose window is right there is having trouble sleeping, because for him the Boogey Man is now real,” said Wyatt.

Nobody wants their family to feel that worry and fear. Because crime is always a risk, no matter where you live, it is so important to educate yourself on the precautionary actions that will best protect you and your family in a bad situation. Wyatt chose home security cameras, but you might want to consider what options would be best tailored to meet your needs.
