Local Man Catches Friend Stealing His Tools On Surveillance Camera

MEAD, Wash. – It's a story you will only read on KHQ.com, about a man who had his property stolen, and knows exactly where it is. Local construction contractor, Judd McDaniels, found out that his tools were stolen on Tuesday morning, and he desperately needs them for work.

"I spend money on my tools to make my job easier, and then when someone comes and takes them…it took twice as long to do the job," McDaniels said.

McDaniels immediately set out to figure out what happened. He turned to the security cameras he had installed a couple years back. That investment paid off, the surveillance video shows a thief entering his garage and helping himself to McDaniel's tools. "It's creating a big mess for everyone, costing everyone money. These people don't want to pay for anything so they want to steal your stuff," McDaniels told KHQ.

McDaniels said the man in the video is an old friend.

"I had a suspicion that it was him, I could not believe it, we had been friends for 7-8 years," McDaniels said.

The thief is the same person who helped McDaniels install the same cameras that caught him red handed. "So he knew exactly where the camera angles were and everything, I don't know what he was thinking," McDaniels explained. 

We did talk to the detective who working is on McDaniel's case and he said that this is an active investigation. Police are still compiling a case against the thief because there are multiple incidents that he might be involved in.  The tools are sitting in a pawnshop on hold. The detective says that McDaniels should have them back by the end of the week.
