Tesla Sentry Mode surveillance system helps catch a vandal slashing tires

The incident happened around 3 AM when the car was parked by the leasing office of a rental apartment community in Newport Beach, CA.

When I found out one of the tires was flat on my way to work, I checked the recordings made by the car.

Its Sentry mode saves videos of all suspicious activities around the car from 4 cameras, one on each side.

After I got a loaner wheel from Tesla I brought the evidence to the police station.

I was told by the police that there were other cars in the same area which had their tires slashed the same night.

Apparently, the crime was not Tesla-targeting, but it was a Tesla Model 3 which caught the suspect on camera.

The video evidence helped the police identify the suspect and led to his arrest shortly afterward on the same day.

The investigation is ongoing.
