Security Cameras Invaluable

After the convenient store shooting on Cottonwood Road last week, local police officers have a tip for storeowners.

Officials advise business owners to maintain their security cameras. It can help them solve cases like the burglary last year at a convenient store on 84 East.

Make sure the technology is up to date and they are working properly.

Dothan Police Chief John White says the videotapes are inexpensive so don't use tapes over and over again. He says surveillance video is invaluable to officers when investigating a case.

The Southeast Mini Mart where the shooting occurred last week was equipped with late model equipment but it wasn't operating.
