Bail Bonds and Beanie Wearing Bandits: Smile for the Camera Mr. Bad Guy

Thursday, June 5, 2014

GoPro BanditIn today’s world of high tech gadgets and gizmos, it might be wise to keep up on your technology, especially if you are a criminal.  That is the theme of today’s bail bond blog post. 

Earlier this month a man was biking through rural South Africa minding his own business when he was robbed.  Now the first question we have is why he was biking through rural South Africa, we were under the impression that it wasn’t the safest country in the world to go off the beaten path on a mountain bike.  Anyway, that is beside the point. The amazing thing about this story is that the man was able to video his entire ordeal and because he did so, he  now has evidence to put these guys away when they are caught. 

You are probably asking yourself, how he did that (and probably by now, so are the bad guys).  The guy on the mountain bike was wearing a GoPro camera on his head that captured the whole thing.  Lucky for him the beanie wearing bandits did not read their latest issue of WIRED Magazine and had no idea what the little device was or that it was recording them.  We will chalk this one up to another high-tech device brings down a low tech bad guy.  Watch the video and read the original story below.
