TUCSON - Security cameras are not just for businesses anymore.
Andrea Desjardin's husband just installed an 8-camera system on their home near Golf Links and Pantano Roads. It only cost a few hundred dollars. On Monday around 1 p.m., somebody rode to the home on a bike and stole most of the cameras.
"In stealing them, he put his face right up in the cameras," Desjardin said. "If you know him, you're going to recognize him."
He was already captured on the digital video recorder in the house. Desjardin shared his pictures on social media, which reached thousands of people.
"We've had people send us messages that they believe he's the same guy responsible for things that have happened to them," she said. "So I'm sure that he's out there continuing to do this. And that's why we really want to get him caught."
The suspect has not been caught yet.
Erik Duong had Tucson Alarm Company professionally install cameras at Snow Peas Modern Asian Kitchen near 22nd Street and Craycroft Road. He had a thief steal a camera before. Now they are tied into his system, so a stolen camera would activate the alarm.
Those cameras caught a woman breaking into his restaurant around 4 a.m. Tuesday. She was scared off when she set off a loud motion sensor.
"I don't think she will be coming back to the restaurant," Duong said. "Because I took a picture of her from the footage, and I posted it everywhere."
Duong is in the process of giving the police his surveillance footage and filing a police report. The woman has not been caught.
