It was the at-home security cameras on one home that finally helped bust Dominique Hudson, finally an image of this "Sandman." So now that the cops had an image, how could they catch him? It turns out that one of the electronic devices that he stole, had a tracking device on it.

The actual arrest was priceless...While in his truck, cops pulled the suspect over. Law enforcement produced a photo of him to show the "night thief" that they knew it was him. His response?? According to St. Charles Police Capt. Raymond Floyd:
