The device located on Woodhead Road in Lockwood was severely damaged.<br><br>Over the course of a month, nearly one-fifth of New York City's red light camera system were taken out of service by a man and a woman who allegedly used a cherry-picker to snatch the cameras out of their protective housing. According to the <a href="http://www.nypost.com/seven/07222009/news/regionalnews/brooklyn/spy_camera_snatch_shot_180660.htm">New York Post</a>, the suspects snatched twenty-two of the 12-megapixel Nikon D2X cameras, worth $4000 each. According to police, thirteen of them were sold to a local camera shop for $300 each. These have been recovered. The website of the shop in question showed D2X cameras, not necessarily ones involved in the incident, had been sold online for $949 each. Police arrested a 29-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man and charged them with the theft. The man is a former subcontractor for Mulvihill ICS, the company which does installation and maintenance work for the cameras along with American Traffic Solutions (ATS), which operates the ticketing program. <A HREF="http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/28/2849.asp#source" TITLE="Read Source: ">Source</A>
