The Doggie Bag Dumper

Living in a gated community may keep some dangers out, but it won't protect you from your neighbor's misdeeds: Steve Miller, of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., found that out the hard way after he found ten bags of feces in the bushes on his lawn. Miller mounted a video camera on his house and sure enough, the camera soon caught a neighbor dumping bag after bag of canine waste. Miller alerted the gated community's security patrol, which issued the dog owner several citations.

The Car Scratcher

Adam Kliebert, from Houston, Texas, was perplexed when he found scratches on his SUV, which was parked in front of his home. With help from co-workers he installed security cameras outside his home, and caught former state district Judge Woody Densen apparently tampering with his car. Densen pleaded guilty to a Class A misdemeanor of criminal mischief and was fined $1,500.

In a videotaped conversation with Densen before his arrest, Densen told Kliebert that he didn't know who damaged his SUV but suggested that it happened because the SUV was partially blocking the sidewalk.
