Last Wednesday Lamont Lee Bonner was arrested and charged with larceny after a UNCG student turned in video footage of Bonner stealing a student bicycle to campus police.

Adam Kennedy, a junior, had his bicycle stolen the night before and was determined to catch the thief.

“I put my webcam in my window, facing the bike racks,” said Kennedy. “It caught [Bonner] stealing a bike.”

According to Kennedy, campus police responded quickly using dogs to follow Bonner’s scent.

“They found him across the street in some bushes,” said Kennedy.

According to police reports, several bicycles had been stolen that week, and it is not certain Bonner was guilty of all the larcenies.

Kennedy has been nominated for an award by crime stoppers.
