This is why a lot of people are putting up surveillance cameras in their front yards. If the guy with the Porsche on his lawn had got the car license plate and damage with a surveillance camera he would be calling his lawyer rather than the city public works. These digital surveillance camera kits are dirt cheap now and link to both your computer and smartphone - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Camera-Packages/ci/3672/N/4293342854

Hey CDC My apologies for my unclear writing. It was Police staff who informed public works. Not the caller. I've updated the statement.
