Student Sets Up His Own Surveillance To Catch Locker Room Thief

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -- A Lake Brantley High School student is credited with helping Altamonte Springs police solve a series of baffling school burglaries. Police arrested 19-year-old Antonio Brinson on Wednesday after investigators said he was caught on a hidden camera stealing from other students in a locker room. He's suspected of stealing several cell phones, an MP3 player and some cash over a few weeks.

Another student got fed up and set up his own surveillance camera in the locker room to catch the suspected thief in the act.

"We were all happy. One kid said his phone was stolen. I looked in my bag and my phone, MP3 and money were all gone," said Julian Campos, a student victim.

The school district didn't comment on whether the student who used the camera was in any kind of trouble, but some students said they hope not because they think he did the right thing.
