To Catch A Thief
Published: May 6, 2012
To Catch A Thief, It’s quite the story, of how Daniel Wenger, a 50-year-old man was reading news headlines on his iPad when a guy came up from behind him and swiped it.
In surveillance video from Metro, you can see Daniel Weger chase after a young man who stole his iPad around noon on April 13.
Wenger was on a blue line train toward Franconia. He had left the Pentagon to go home and then to a second job as an auxiliary police officer inFfairfax County.
Metro Transit Police Deputy Chief Ron Pavlik said ” I think that training helped him with making decisions. I don’t want to speak for him, but I’m sure that training and background helped him that day.”
The video surveillance tape shows the thief jumping off teh train at the Reagan National Airport stop.
The chase continued with the men going in and out of trains at that stop. At one point Wenger’s arm got stuck in Metro doors, breaking his arm. Metro police said the suspect jumped down and crossed the platform and even an electrified rail. Pavlik said the suspect is fortunate he wasn’t critically hurt or electrocuted.
Just before the iPad thief got on another train, another passenger grabbed the iPad and yelled to Wenger to ask what was on his screen saver. Wenger said it was a picture of his wife and two children. (9News)
