Breaking! Investigator Fingers Vandal Caught on Video

Confidential Investigations received tons of phone calls after it released a video of the vandal caught in the act and his picture was published. One tip on Thursday advised them to go to a local car dealership, according to owner/investigator Erin Jenkins. Jenkins, wearing a hidden mic, went inside the dealership, identified the suspect and got his confession on tape. He then had the vandal make a copy of his driver's license. The tape-recorded confession and copy of the young man's ID were turned over to detectives. An arrest has yet to be made. Jenkins said the man had seen the newspaper article on the vandalism and his picture in the paper. "He panicked," Jenkins said. "He saw that in the paper and he knew it wasn't going to be long before he was answering for it" -- Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review.
