Woman uses camera to catch friend stealing Xbox

After the victim's video game system was swiped, she took a look at surveillance footage and found a suspect.

MARYSVILLE -- It seems cameras are everywhere these days, even where they might be least expected.
An Arlington woman accused of swiping a video gaming system from a friend can attest to that.
Her victim, who was living in a former school bus, was able to give police more than her strong suspicion about who broke into her home to steal her Xbox 360 and its controller earlier this month.
The north Marysville woman had video surveillance footage.
As a result, the Arlington woman, 25, was arrested for investigation of trafficking in stolen property and booked into the Snohomish County Jail on Tuesday.
The suspect and her boyfriend had lived temporarily with the woman in the bus, according to court records. The woman considered the suspect to be her friend.
When she reviewed the video, she saw footage of the Arlington woman walking toward the bus with nothing in her hands, court papers said. A short time later, she could be seen leaving the bus with an item the size of the Xbox.
The Marysville woman then called her former boarder to confront her. The suspect acknowledged taking the Xbox to a Smokey Point pawn shop, court papers said.
A Snohomish County sheriff's deputy later contacted an employee at the pawn shop.
The worker produced the Xbox and the controller as well as a pawn ticket with the suspect's contact information as well as her thumbprint, court papers said.
