MythDragon: CSB:I used to install drive-thru, music, and CCTV systems for various businesses. Not long after we installed a CCTV at a McD's we get a call from the owner to help him look through his video for a theft.The night manager apparently decided she wasn't making enough, and figured she'd take home the night's take. So we have video of her counting the money, and then instead of putting it in the deposit bag, she starts shoving it a manilla envelope. Then she looks to her right. "What's this? Hey a monitor. What's on it? Hey! that's me stealing money on the office cam. Well that's no good. I must resolve this conundrum" How does she fix the problem of her being show on the office monitor stealing money? She unplugs the monitor. Then happily goes back to shoving money in the envelope and sticks it in her purse.But what gets me is that no part of her plan was a good idea. First off, she's already been recorded sticking the money in an envelope to steal it, so even if that's all they got, it would be enough. At that point where you realize you're on camera you go (because we had audio too) 'Hey what am I doing? Money doesn't go in the envelope, it goes in the deposit bag and back into the safe! silly me!". Second, unplugging the monitor doesn't do a damn thing to stop the cameras, but even if she knew to unplug the DVR, it would still record up until it lost power, and they would have nice video evidence of her unplugging it (which has helped when people have broken cameras or the DVR itself, and we used the video to show it was the business's employee's fault and not bad equipment) Lasty, even if she somehow disabled the cameras without being recorded, she was still the closing manager who counted out the money. Like they are gonna come in the next morning and go "Only 47 cents? Must have been a slow night!". They know how much money needs to be there. WTF? I know people are stupid, but damn.
