When I first spotted this SUV driving down my street this morning, it took me a minute to figure out what he was doing... As I got closer, though, I realized the driver had attached an iPad to a stick of some sort, and was holding it out his window and aiming it at backyards - presumably taking pictures/video. Our neighborhood has had a number of break-ins recently, so the best explanation I could come up with was that he was "casing" properties... Seeing which ones had dogs, which ones looked like easy access. I took down his license plate and called the police, who said they'd investigate. Figured it was worth passing along in case you see anything like this happening in your neighborhood.
How shady is this car driving around our neighborhood? An iPad is attached to a stick so they can see in backyards. pic.twitter.com/82EznyfTbf— Jon Manuel (@JonManuel) April 29, 2014
