The man is accused of unauthorized use of a credit card.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 358-TIPS (8477).

Message to all would be criminals: Don't do illegal stuff and then go to Megabite! The same camera that caught the cop choker now has this guy's mug on the net. Megabite should be getting a cut of the reward for having such clear surveillance camera footage.

I believe this photo was from Liquor Downtown, but your point is well taken. Some security cameras are certainly better than others.

Why does Walgreens have high def cameras and banks have crappy ones ? Why don't banks install loud school bell-like noise makers that go on when robber leaves the building--everyone would look and to see where they go. My preference would be to have managers just shoot them to save tax money :)
