They sought TV, got caught by TV
In Küçükçekmece, Istanbul, thieves stole an LCD TV by
prying open the door of a coffee house. Police viewed
security video and determined that the robbers had come
to the coffee house during the day to check out the TV.
The owner of the coffee house in the Kanarya section of
Küçükçekmece, told the police that the day before yesterday
he had come to his store in the morning to find that the door
had been forced open with a screwdriver. The police came
and noted that the LCD TV had been stolen. They reviewed
the internal and external security video recordings, noticing
that two patrons had told the coffee house owner that
they were painters and then sat down for tea.
The video showed that the two suspects acted suspiciously
as they drank their tea and watched TV. The police also
saw that the two figured out how the TV could be removed.
The video caught the two coming to the store early the next
morning, forcing open the door with a screwdriver and taking
the TV, which they put into a rented car.
Police determined that the suspects were Yusuf K. (38) and
Orhan B. (33), both of whom have records. They were taken
into custody the same day and confessed that they sold the
TV for 200 TL to buy drugs.
