Surveillance video shows four men paying for items at the counter of a store that was supposed to be closed
A northern New Jersey shop is thanking four teens captured on surveillance cameras paying for batteries and headphones, even though the store was closed.
The owners of Buddy's Small Lots in Wayne, N.J., said they got a call that the store had been broken into about 7 p.m. Sunday night. They later learned a malfunctioning lock left the door to the closed shop open to anyone who wanted to walk in.
But they were shocked by what they saw in surveillance footage of the supposed break-in.
Four teens were seen walking around the store looking for a clerk and waving at the cameras. Then they did a little shopping, leaving cash on the counter for everything they took, sales tax included.
"I think it's terrific that there are still people out there with moral character not to do the wrong thing when they easily could," said Marci Lederman with the store.
The store's owners were so surprised by the teens that they started looking for them. They found the four William Patterson High School football players Tuesday.
