Photo of a Photo of a Video of a the Guy who Robbed Radish

May 8, 2011

Radish, the classy joint just outside our door downstairs, was robbed tonight. The shopkeep was in hysterics in the street when I came home, slightly intoxicated. I thought the guys at the health food bodega got hit considering the amount of cops in the place. But they were there to scope the surveillance footage of the bodega since the suspect was seen in there just moments before going to Radish.

But the interesting part to me is the way the cops went at getting a description of the suspect, a low-tech use of high-tech tools: taking a close up snapshot of the video with an iPhone. Fittingly, I took a snapshot of that with my iPhone.
