BUSTED: Police catch suspect red-handed trying to escape with stolen merchandise
BURBANK, Cali. (SBG) — A suspect was caught red-handed on a police camera attempting to make a run for it with stolen merchandise in hand.
"When you’re at the right place at the right time," the Burbank Police Department wrote on Facebook.
In the video, a police officer had just arrived by motorcycle at the area of a hit-and-run, but before he could start his investigation an alarm was suddenly activated from a nearby building and a suspected thief came out a back door with his arms full of merchandise.
"Come on now," the police officer can be heard saying in the video. "Put it back, put it back!"
The officer arrested the suspect, brought back the stolen merchandise, and returned to the hit-and-run investigation.
