Quoted from Techie lobang.
"A couple went on a stealing spree with a cherry picker for NYC Red Light Traffic cameras. Within 4 weeks, they managed to remove 22 of them. At first, I was thinking that it is just some customized camera that could not be used on actual life. I was wrong. It is actually a Nikon DSLR D2X, a pro-level camera.

One of the couple, by the name of Anthony Cintorrino actually is a part time contractor for the company that install these cameras. And that makes it so simple to do the deed. I was surprised that a Nikon Pro DSLR D2X was installed into this traffic camera. I wondered what camera is Singapore police using on our road :) .

This couple still have the guts to sell them at B&H, a popular 2nd hand camera store in US. I guess many people in Singapore also buy lens or camera body from them.

BTW, the cameras are worth US$88,000 but they are sold at US$300 per piece. However, all are recovered and put back into the box. In my opinion, get a lock for the Traffic Camera.. seems like there is no lock at all! ??"
