The man was eventually captured, but police did not reveal the precise criminal charge filed against him.

When a criminal suspect is identified clearly on video surveillance, defense counsel may do best to initiate bargaining sessions with the prosecutor. Such a tactic generally results in greater power for the defense to influence the prosecutor on a reduced charge and sentence.
