  • They couldn’t have posed for better pictures.

  • That was clearly not 1:48 pm

  • I swear, DC has the dumbest criminals in the world. I hate to give credit to any thief, but the smarter ones know better than to stick their faces into security cameras on ATMs immediately after robbing someone of their debit card.

  • I seriously wonder how much it would cost to replace security cameras with new higher resolution cameras. I feel as if price has come down enough to where it has become “affordable”. Not just talking ATMs either.
    My followup question would then be, are cameras worth the cost and do they actually help catch perps?

      I don’t think the bottom of the entry level ones are worth it. But for a little more, they start getting good enough. Or for a few thousand, you can have a seriously HD system.
      For low level crimes, the police may not take it far enough to track the person down, but they sure respond for serious crimes and nab the jerks.

  • What were the circumstances of the robbery itself? I’m around that area quite a bit and a robbery in the daytime (if it was PM not AM ) does concern me.
