School vandals caught thanks to YouTube and laptop

  • Sunset (UT) – School vandals usually get away, but the magic of YouTube helped catch two teenage misfits in Sunset Utah.  The kids vandalized Sunset Elementary School a few weeks ago by smashing a surveillance camera and destroying other property.  Luckily, the kids stared right into a surveillance camera during the deed.

    Principal Don Beatty digitized the video and popped it up onto YouTube.  He offered a $50 reward for anyone with information about the vandalism.  When that didn’t work, a local police officer transferred the video to his laptop and showed it off at a local skate park.  Tips started pouring in and the vandals were caught the next day.

    Isn’t it great to have the good guys win once in a while?
