Fed up with burglaries, the owners of a self-storage facility in Clarksville, Tenn., installed an $8,500 surveillance system.
Located near Fort Campbell Army Base and other military outposts, Modern Mini Storage rents a large number of units to military personnel. There have been more than 140 break-ins at the facility. Police think many of the break-ins were people looking for military gear stored by soldiers on deployment.
The surveillance cameras recently captured footage of a man breaking into a unit and loading items into his car. An arrest was made with 48 hours of the theft. Investigators believe there could be several groups targeting self-storage facilities in the area.
