Home Security Camera Helps ID, Charge 3 Men in Burglary
ANOKA, Minn. (AP) - Three Minnesota men have been charged with burglary after a woman posted home security videos online of the trio in her apartment.
The robbery occurred on the morning of Aug. 7 in an Anoka apartment complex. A woman called police while out of town to say that her video system had captured some unknown people in her apartment while she was out of town. Police arrived to find the apartment had been burglarized.
Diamond James, 19, Marsalis Peterson, 19, and 20-year-old Willie Washington were all charged Tuesday with second-degree burglary after being identified in the footage. All three men are still at large.
Anoka police Captain Eric Peterson says the home camera footage was integral in identifying and charging the suspects.
