6:33 am
hole, they made a hole where they could walk louie sinkly they get, in even they new where the wiring was, tripped alarm, because they had cut some wiring, cut surveillance cameras, but they hit the alarm. then police show up. now, target leaves the lights on as they did all night, coming back to live picture, see no one here now but stores completely lit up to see inside. good thing too. when the police come here, they see these burglars running through the store. they see there is they sends all of the police that they have available, and there is a get-away car, park about a half mile, for some reason it, raised somebody's suspicions, there is a picture i took of t inside after get away, there is walky-talky radios which look awfully suspicious. you can see them through the window. well here is the video we have after waiting out these guys going in with k9 dogs, these guys were going up on the roof, down on the roof. these guys new the whole blueprint of targetment went back up on the roof after k9
6:34 am
officer and another k9 went in, there these guys trying to avoid the dogs and avoid their scent and avoid any bite, go up on the roof. that's where police found them, with a back pack they were laying on top of each other, nan that back pack the walky-talkies with the saw, matched the walky-talkies, in that suspected get-away car three hours after these guys were finally caught and found. >> where they were found in the ventilate duct on the roof, laying on top of each other, these two suspect, and they had a back pack with them. portable saw in the back pack, as well as walky-talkies. that portable saw most likely is the tool used to break into the steel door, in order to commit this burglary. they were determined. they got in. they were determine to hide. they hid for over three hours on the roof in this air duct, the police did great job finding them. and taking them into custody.
6:35 am
but the police were tenacious. they searched inside the property, in in the storage rooms, everywhere in the property, they new they were in there, they didn't give up. and it paid off. they found them, on the roof, hiding. >> so in that time when we first arrived around 2:45, were seeing the police looking for these guys, we see the pennsylvania state trooper detectives show up. and we learn from them that they've got special task force, that was kind of secret, really not publicly known about, six other targets just on the outside suburbs, outskirt of philadelphia, had been robbed, burglarized, same fashion, november 15th. these guys hitting two, three a weeks. this was number seven, bad choice because they finally got caught. the pennsylvania state police say these guys were going for the expensive apple electronics got away with more
6:36 am
than one hud thousand dollars worth. but agreed got the best of them. i told everybody this same dark it was robbed by three guys who hid in the men's room back on april 19th, and they still have not solved that case. they put out the surveillance video. these guys highed in the men's room, don't wait for the employees to leave, just wait for the store to close, cash registers full. as the people at the registers were wrapping up for the night, they hit them when the registers were full, and they got away with about $30,000. >> robbery, use every guns, ewing every threat, burglaries just zero just blake when no one is around, not threatening anybody, still, serious crime, maybe the state police finally cracked this big case for daggett. >> i bet they hope they do. >> target breathing sigh of relief, right. >> no kidding, right? and last christmas they had problems, too, poor target, can't catch a break. >> steve, thank you. new jersey's experiment with rhett lied cameras now over. pilot program began in 2009.
