I was going to post this here but had forgotten to do so. We had a problem with a vandal starting last February of this year. He hit us eight weeks in a row at least once a week sometimes twice. He would find the most expensive RV on the lot and break a window or two. The sheriff office had a surveillance running and almost caught him one night. They heard the window being broken but they were sitting in the wrong spot and by the time they got there he was gone. They had the helicopter up there looking for him to no avail. After that he laid low for two months. I put out trail cams on different brackets that I had made and after two months he shows up again and got photos and video of this guy in the act. I have posted a couple of videos of him in action along with his mug shot. You will note in the videos he was wearing a facemask and gloves. The sheriff’s again set up surveillance and I sat out there when the sheriff’s office was not available from 9PM to 3:30AM. I missed him on two occasions by one day. Long story short the Sheriff’s Office got lucky and caught him in the act wearing his facemask and it was later determine he was responsible for a number of burglaries around the county. The guy was recently sentenced to three years, not long enough for the several thousand dollars of damage he caused.
This is the first photo that I got of him. I strapped the camera on a 5th wheel trailer hitch.
Video of this guy’s staging area, he is wearing his facemask.
In this video he uses a wood pallet as a ladder. The camera was mounted on a wood pallet and was leaning against the building and this guy takes the pallet that was leaning against the pallet where the camera was located.
This is a video of the guy putting the pallet back and entering a vehicle.

He's a handsome fella.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
That is no kid! I mean not your standard teen-age vandal.
Kind of resembles Walter White on Breaking Bad. If you've watched it, you would understand why he hates RV's.

Looks like he did a little resisting of arrest.

Three years. Just enough time for this guy to get his Bachelor's in Career Criminality, after which time he'll be released to pursue his Masters in Rape or Murder. Great.
But kudos to you for getting this guy off the streets for a while.
