Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Dye Pack Explodes on Fleeing Bank Robber

Other top surveillance videos include two men saving a neighbor from a vicious dog attack, an exploding SUV and more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

Although “dye pack exploding on bumbling bank thief” is a trope commonly seen in movies and television, I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen an example of it in real life … until now.

Surveillance footage out of New Jersey shows a man briskly walking down a sidewalk when suddenly a cloud of red smoke starts to billow from his backpack. He then darts across the street, reaches into his backpack and throws the smoking dye pack away.

Unfortunately for suspect, a police detective spotted him and eventually placed him under arrest. According to the authorities, the suspect walked into a bank and passed a note to a teller saying he had a gun and wanted money. Officials said the teller gave him money, including a dye pack.

Officials also said $2,300 cash was taken along with the dye pack, which contained another $200.

Also this week…

Home surveillance footage shows a man get viciously attacked by two loose pit bulls. The dogs jump at him and are eventually able to bring him to the ground where they continued to bite him.

A nearby neighbor notices the commotion, grabs a long tree trimmer and comes to the man’s rescue. Another neighbor, a retired lawman, also comes to help and is forced to use his gun on one of the dogs, wounding it.
