Video Camera Thief Arrested In Longview

Attempting to steal a surveillance camera was not such a good idea for one Longview man.

Investigators believe it was 25-year-old Donald Burford Johnson whose picture was taken by the camera he is charged with trying to steal. A Crimestoppers tip the night we aired the surveillance picture led to Johnson's arrest on Wednesday.

Johnson is now accused of stealing around $1,000 worth of cameras and motion detectors from rental property in the Pine Tree area. Authorities say Johnson has a long arrest record including drug, assault and theft charges.
