Video Equipment in Suspect's Car

Deputies with the Onondaga County Sheriff's Office in Syracuse, NY discovered a covert surveillance system in a suspect's car on a traffic stop. The system appears to be for recording police traffic stops. The driver had a small flat screen video monitor hanging on the windshield where the rear view mirror is normally mounted. Cables led to a VCR in the trunk. There was another cable leading to one of the tail lamps where a small video camera was mounted in the third brake light housing.
Be alert, we may be recorded on video when we do not expect it, as has been demonstrated too many times. Now it looks like we may be set up by equipment especially designed to video us on V&T stops.
