Here we have another story about some poor guy who is a quadriplegic that was robbed at his home. Only this time, they caught them on video surveillance tape, though the quality is terrible, so sometimes, even catching them on tape does not help. You need a good camera that can see at night.
Home Invasion Caught on Surveillance Video
LINDEN, CA – Four masked gunmen most likely knew the victim of a Friday home invasion robbery was helpless as a quadriplegic. They probably didn’t know the crime on a rural street east of Stockton was caught on video.
That video shows the four gunman throwing a large rock through a plate glass window from the backyard, then rushing inside at about 1:45 a.m. Friday. There are also a few shots of some of the men inside the house as they terrorized the victim’s nurse, sitting in the kitchen.
“They kept yelling and screaming and waving guns in everybody’s face,” said homeowner Aaron Paradiso. “They went upstairs, got my mother, my girlfriend, put them all on the floor at gunpoint, went into the children’s rooms.”
It’s likely they also knew or suspected Paradiso had a large amount of cash inside. Paradiso admits he grows medicinal marijuana, and San Joaquin County sheriff’s detectives said his house is also a cannibas buyer’s club.
Paradiso said the masked gunmen stole $26,000 in cash. He said he usually doesn’t have so much money on hand, but was preparing to take his family on vacation.
“Somebody had to know. It wasn’t just coincidence. They were real familiar with the house,” said Paradiso. “I don’t think somebody was just driving by and they just decided to come to this house.”
Hmmm, he was operating a medical marijuana club out of his house & was a quad? At least he could have had a 12 gauge tucked into his wheelchair, though I guess he could not use it. So he lost his $ and his medicine; not good.
All four men were armed with semi-automatic handguns. While they were all masked, the video shows one gunman wearing a distinctive white or gray sweatshirt with “White Sox” in bold letters on the front.
Another man’s mask slips off as he runs out of the house, though it’s difficult to make out his face in the darkness. He’s short and very heavy-set, between 5 feet, 7 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing as much as 300 pounds. A third gunman was thin and wearing a baby blue sweatsuit or running suit.
So, they have video of one of the fat ones who took off their mask, while still on video. Yet the video is of such poor quality, I can’t make out anything. Rule to remember, you buy cheap video cameras, you get cheap surveillance tape that can’t be used. Spend a few extra bucks and get a decent quality camera that can see in the dark.
Speaking of seeing in the dark, the VersaCam Internet accessible cameras just got better with the release of the VersaCam LiveView Super IR Weatherproof Camera, a new, night vision video surveillance camera that will see up to 150 feet in total darkness!!!
This is an awesome wireless surveillance camera that uses 30 Super Sized Infrared lights to light up the night and see who is trying to break into your home or business. Only they can’t tell because it will not give off any light, just silently record them once movement is detected.
You set up the VersaCam LiveView Super IR Weatherproof Camera to cover the front and/or back of your house, or driveway, and it will send the video wirelessly to a little box that you plug into the USB port of your computer. After you install the software, it will allow you to monitor the video from that computer, or any computer in the world over the Internet. You can even hook up to three different cameras, indoor or outdoor, so you can cover your entire property without breaking the bank.
You set it up to record whenever the camera detects motion, so you don’t have hours of video of nothing. It will also send you an alert telling you when it detects motion. If you have an iPhone, you can log in and check the video from your phone!
Don’t buy a $99 camera system on eBay and expect it to record good quality video to give to law enforcement. Pick up the VersaCam LiveView Super IR Weatherproof Camera, which will record crystal clear video in pitch black so you can easily burn a disc to give the police.
