High tech crooks plant camera in Wal-Mart store

Posted by Humphrey Cheung

Orlando (FL) – Some high tech crooks had the gall to plant a not-so-hidden camera in a Wal-Mart store.  According to authorities, the camera overlooked a cash register area and could have captured credit card numbers.  Unfortunately for the crooks, the camera was discovered after an hour, not because it looked like a camera, but because it resembled a bomb.

The camera was hidden inside of a box complete with a protruding antenna and wrapped in black electrical tape.  The local bomb squad arrived, evacuated the store and “defused” the bomb.  Police believe the camera was beaming footage back to a van in the parking lot.  Wal-Mart has surveillance footage of the people planting the device and plan on releasing their photos soon.
