There are many different things that can lead to a person’s arrest. Sometimes it’s eyewitness testimony that can point a finger at a certain individual matching that description. In other instances, it can be evidence left at the scene that prompt police to follow a certain lead.
But it was a video from a home security tape that led to the arrest of an 18-year-old teenager who was then charged with burglary. The video was released to the public after the family’s Harris County home had been burglarized. According to the news report, the family did not know that someone had broken into their home until the next morning.
