admincamera, security, Video

The coronavirus has had a serious impact on our daily lives. Not even the top surveillance videos of the week are immune to COVID-19.

Due to much of the country (and world) still wary of being out and about in public, there is unsurprisingly a lack of new interesting surveillance videos. In order to make sure we can keep bringing you this weekly feature to help lighten the mood in these trying times, we will temporarily be reducing the number of videos from 9 to 5.

Now, on to this week’s top surveillance videos…

There are few things more satisfying than seeing a criminal suspect failing or getting what they deserve. We’ve this happen in a variety of ways, including being foiled by a shopping cart.

This week we see a suspect foiled by a quick-thinking employee. Surveillance video from an Arizona Walmart shows a suspect taking several employees hostage at gunpoint.

The suspect then puts his gun down while negotiating on the phone with police. An employee quickly grabs the phone and the workers run to the back of the store — all while the suspect remains on the phone, totally clueless.

Also this week…

A 54-year-old woman who recently had a liver transplant was assaulted inside a New Jersey Staples after asking another shopper to wear her mask.

Surveillance video shows the suspect yelling at the woman, who was holding a cane, then grab her and throw her to the ground.
