Burglars on camera and also Craigslist


POSTED: Friday, February 20, 2009

Owners of an Aiea snack place went online to unmask the suspects who broke into their shop Tuesday.

Sweet Krevz part-owner Desiree Fedalizo said employees and owners met and came up with the idea of creating their own CrimeStoppers bulletin.

Police are looking for four men for burglarizing the shop.

The owners said they caught four burglars on surveillance video breaking into their shop at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday. The camera system has night-vision capability and was able to record the burglars in the act.

The alarm went off at about 5 a.m. because the store has a motion sensor that does not detect anything behind the counter.

Part owner James Migia said the burglars stole $350 in cash, a change box and a digital camera. “;They tried to break the safe and busted a few walls trying to get to the safe,”; he said.

Migia posted the online bulletin on classifieds Web site Craigslist.org, attaching the surveillance video shots.

Migia said they have the entire burglary on videotape.

“;We're thinking somebody that knows where it is,”; Migia said. “;They knew exactly where to go through the wall and went straight to the safe.”;

The Craigslist ad asks that anyone with information call police or e-mail .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
