Crook Foiled By Technology On Board Police Chopper

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A crook thought he could hide from Fresno Police in the dark, but he could not hide from the high-tech camera in a helicopter circling above that could see his body heat.

Officers say they found a broken window and fence outside Marshall's Auto Body off Belmont and Palm near the Tower District late Thursday night.

Until the business owner got there to let them in, a police chopper circled above them.

The crew on board used a camera with Forward Looking Infrared technology. It finds a heat source, even if you can't see it.

Once the business owner arrived, officers went straight to the heat source, found the man and arrested him.

He couldn't get inside the business before officers arrived so he's charged with attempted burglary.

Police say he was also a parolee on the run.
