Within a day of releasing surveillance photos of a suspect who used stolen credit cards, police received a tip that led them to an arrest.

Among the recovered items was a competition air pistol belonging to Olympian Robert Bremer. According to police, the rifle and credit cards were stolen from Bremer's car while it was parked at a local park. A laptop was also stolen.

Elias Matos was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing, identity theft and theft by receiving.

    Is there really much of a point of having a surveillance camera if it puts out unrecognizable images like this?

    soooo....... I'm guessing that this is more news worthy than say other car breakins because it was an Olympic Athletes car???

      Thinking the same thing. What about us common folk that have been ripped off and never receieved either recognition OR our belongings back?

        Oh come on. Don't be so bitter. Just get on an olympic team and your social status will automatically raise. Play the media game. Or become a air force cadet and get a hall pass.
