BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Businesses often catch burglars thanks to surveillance cameras, but it's not every day the thief is being watched live.

Security cameras at Royal Nissan on Airline Highway were rolling Tuesday, Feb. 25 when a man tried to steal 2 taillights off of a truck. What he didn't know is that the surveillance company was watching him do it. They called police and officers nabbed him just down the road.

"You would think they would at least look around the lot and see if there's any signs of cameras or security, and obviously he didn't. He just pulled up and went to stealing the taillights off the truck and luckily he didn't take any wheels or tires."

Dustin Arnold was arrested by BRPD officers. He is charged with theft, burglary, possession of schedule II narcotics, and possession of marijuana. He's currently being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a bond of $9,500.

Officials say the taillights were recovered.
