Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

Builder Gary Horner got a nasty surprise when he captured his mate on camera sneaking into his house through the dog flap and stealing money. Gary, who had been best man to the thief, Neil Bolderson, had installed a number of mini-cameras around his house when money kept disappearing, according to the Daily Mail. Initially, both Gary and his other half Julie, thought the other was spending the money. But when it continued to vanish, without so much of a sound from their ten-stone guard dog Roscoe, the couple suspected it must be someone they know. They secretly installed £800 worth of surveillance cameras and not long after caught Bolderson clambering into their house and nonchalantly pocketing a wad of cash. Gary said that when he saw the tape, he felt "physically sick". He doesn't want to see his mate of 18 years again. A police spokesman applauded the builder's actions, saying the police encouraged community assistance in solving crime. ®
