WBOC, the CBS affiliate in Salisbury, MD, showed off the power of local media by helping an area produce stand owner nab a suspected thief.
Allen Cole, the stand owner, set up a surveillance camera to watch over his stand. When the camera captured a suspected thief taking money out of a cash jar he keeps near his produce, he sent the footage to WBOC.
Reporter Ko Im told TVSpy she posted the footage on the station’s Facebook page and, “About 15,000 (people) saw the post and we got hundreds of comments/shares. We got calls possibly identifying the man behind the theft at a produce stand – and by news time, police say they’ve got a suspect.”
