Watch a Bossier Burglar Steal a Camera That’s Still Recording
The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office has released video of a burglar stealing a security camera from a garage. What makes this interesting is that the camera was still streaming as the suspect removed the camera.
43-year-old Franklin Welzbacher was arrested and charged with simple burglary this week, after he removed items, including the camera, from his neighbor's garage. According to police, when they talked to Welzbacher about removing the items, he told them that the neighbor had given him permission to take the items, but when asked about the camera, he had no explanation.
Authorities say that the homeowner had just installed the camera, and it was lucky that he did.
Welzbacher was taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility, where he was booked on the Simple Burglary charge. He posted a $10,000 bond.
