Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Bird Bandit Foiled by Store Owner

Other top surveillance videos of the week include an elderly man with a walker robbing a bank, a brazen jewelry heist, an exploding iPhone and much more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

Nothing warms the heart like watching an alleged criminal get what they deserve. It’s always nice to see store owners sticking up for their business.

The latest instance comes at a California pet store, where a bird-brained robber has his birdnapping attempt foiled by the store’s owner.

Watch the footage!

The suspect enters the store and begins asking about the bird. He then takes a bag and tries to shove the bird inside. However, the owner says he had a feeling the suspect was going to try something.

That’s why he was ready to pounce on the suspect, shoving him into a nearby cage. The suspect tries to flee, but the owner chased and tackled him for several blocks before eventually recovering the bird.

Since the bird is worth $1500, the crime is considered a felony robbery.
