Police have a clear image of a suspect who they say robbed cash from an Illinois photo booth. In fact, they have several images because the machine took his picture during the alleged act.

The man entered the booth at Funway Amusements in Batavia where he pried open the cash drawer and took approx. $75.00 in cash, Batavia Police Department said. Approximately $75.00 in damage was caused to the machine.

The device is designed to take photographs when it senses tampering to the cash drawer, it said in a news release.

The robbery took place in November but the report was delayed until the machine’s owner could access the photos.
