Occurred Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012, 5:15 p.m.. Actually breakage occur 2 minutes into this editied video. Multiple like incidents suddenly reported in the last couple of weeks near our building.
The guy circles at least twice around the building. Gets out once to scope....orbits the block again, then after a quick check...utilizes a spring loaded glass punch (such as: http://www.amazon.com/Graham-Field-R-071-Window-Punch/dp/B000TEQU3S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347878619&sr=8-1&keywords=spring+loaded+glass+punch) to quietly crumble glass and remove content from car.
Major crop into the image. Can't quite make out the type, but considering this is such a dramatic crop and 3 generations from the original, this is quite impressive. New leading high standard of CCTV.
Hope this demonstrates the advantage with going with higher definition. Whether a footage can be evidence or not, can depend on it's clarity and the ability to crop into a frame. One recent example is the Zimmerman Florida police footage is trying to determine if he in fact has a cut on his head, injuries on nose to substantiate self defense in the killing of the hooded youth. Quality is not very good: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5OiLQjUcOU
