NATION : Camera Exposes Theft Suspects

From Times Wire Services

Police have discovered that three photogenic thieves left their pictures behind when they stole a van in October.

A camera was in the van when the suspects hot-wired it, so they hammed it up for each other and took a few pictures. Then they made the mistake of leaving the camera behind when they abandoned the vehicle in Kokomo.

The woman who owned the van had the film developed last week and, in addition to her Christmas pictures, she found snapshots of the suspects.

“The one of the driver is great,” State Police Sgt. Marty Talbert said. “It’s so clear that you can see there’s no key in the ignition.”
