Crookstube on CH 10 news
dentifying a criminal is now a mouse click away, according to Ryan Borcherds and Brett Goldstein.
The two friends started a website in South Florida called CrooksTube.com. It is designed specifically for surveillance video from around the country.
Goldstein explained how someone living in Boca Raton, for example, would use the site.
"Instead of seeing crimes from Tampa, which you probably wouldn't recognize the person, you can go to Boca Raton, press 'to,' and these are going to be all the crimes in Boca Raton," said Goldstein.
"Making the site geographically targeted was something that we thought was important," said Borcherds.
The two said they work around the clock to post the more than 600 videos. The site also offers local alerts. For example, if you sign up for a Florida alert, you will get an e-mail with a link to any of the new video posted from the area.
