A car thief suspect didn’t see this one coming … but, but The Atlantic City, New Jersey Police Department did.

The Atlantic City Police Department was directly aided by a car dashboard camera.

The dashboard camera led to the arrest of a car thief suspect.

The Atlantic City Police Department released the following information about this apprehension and arrest:

On May 22, 2024, at 4:53 PM, patrol officers responded to the first block of north Morris Avenue for a report of a stolen vehicle. Several hours later, Officer Christopher Campbell located the unoccupied vehicle in the 2600 block of Atlantic Avenue. The owner arrived to take possession of the vehicle, and informed Officer Campbell that he had a dashboard camera. Using the footage from the camera, the picture of the suspect was distributed to all the officers in the department, said the Atlantic City Police Department.

The next day, this allowed Atlantic City Police Sergeant TJ Moynihan to locate  suspect, Brandon Keyser, in the area of where he stole the vehicle. Keyser was arrested without incident, according to the Atlantic City Police Department.

A dashboard camera, like the one pictured below is what led the Atlantic City Police to capture their suspect.
