STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. -- A thief installed a camera on an ATM, but instead of card numbers, he ended up capturing an image of himself.
"He's not a stupid individual to put on this type of scam, but his blunder by keeping the camera on will help us locate him and arrest him," Sterling Heights police Lt. Michael Reese told the Detroit Free Press for a story Tuesday.
A bank customer found the device and reported it to authorities, police said. As a result, none of the suburban Detroit bank's customers who used the machine have reported any losses, officials said.
The man is white, between the ages of 47 and 55 with white and gray hair and was seen wearing wire-rimmed glasses and a baseball cap, The Detroit News reported.
