    Memo to businesses:
    If you have property worth stealing, then you should be making a modest investment to upgrade your camera system to HD resolution…….
    Banks have generally made these rather inexpensive upgrades, since they are attractive targets.
    The public can be very helpful in finding these folks, if you give them a reasonably clear photo.
