Teddycam catches thief
A tiny camera, hidden in the eye of a teddy bear by a 21 year old forensic scientist, caught a carer stealing from her terminally ill grandmother. As a result, a judge sentenced the carer to six months in the nick. From the beeb:
Robert Sampson, 46, and (daughter) Emma, 21 ... set up the camera when 75-year old Mrs Sampson noticed money going missing ... Mr Sampson said: "My mother has end-stage leukaemia and we had to get a carer in who worked for the primary care trust (PCT). "The next day my mum said £40 had gone out of her purse."
The model used cost £55 ($120), and its eye-like lens inspired them to rig up a plush toy. Expecting a lengthy wait, they got results immediately: "We thought it would be a long process but she was greedy."
