Amazon Delivery Camera Helps Catch Gunmen
According to investigators, the Amazon delivery driver was parked at an apartment complex and delivering packages on January 13th when two men were waiting for him when he got back to his truck.
One of the suspects in the video can be seen holding a gun to the driver’s neck. Authorities have said the thieves took the driver’s cell phone and wallet before making their way to the back of the van and taking off with several packages.
The sheriff’s office said the driver was not hurt in the robbery and that they have since arrested the two men suspected to be involved.
Authorities identified the men taken into custody as 22-year-old Arkimase Divinard and 23-year-old Joel Aime. They are facing charges that include robbery with a firearm.
The sheriff’s office said the two suspects have a long criminal record, totaling 85 felony charges with 11 convictions.
While some years ago Amazon’s in-vehicle camera system was met with some hesitancy in situations like this they prove to be incredibly useful.
