My best friend Eric, had a large amount of money stolen on Thursday morning. We left at approximately 12:30pm so I can get to the YMCA in time for GED testing, but the test wasn't on the 21st, but the 28th. When I foundout I was a week early I called Eric to pick me up shortly after I got there at 1:00pm, and he said it'd be about 30mins, cause he's gonna pick Ian up to hangout. So I went to the pullup bar and started working out, while paying attention to see his car. Didn't see it so I called an hour later at 2:05pm. He told me that someone robbed him, and that he's tearing apart his room looking for the money he was saving for college (almost $2,000) So I waiting outside the YMCA door entrance and when we got to his house we were in his room looking, but couldn't find anything.NOTE
: The only people Eric told about the camera besides his family was myself, Ian, and Dillion, but Dillion's alibi checks out, and he's scratched off the list, however Ian has had a past history with robbery, selling stolen items, as well as drugs. Dillion's mother told us that Ian's no longer allowed at her house, cause him and Dillion stole his sisters gaming system, and other items.
Now from what Eric has told me the only people that knew about the money was Ian, and myself, but Ian was the only one besides Eric of course who knew where it was, as he showed him the Tuesday night when he stayed the night at Eric's home. I was told that when Eric was sleeping (I don't recall the time off hand), but when Eric was sleeping Ian was awake and had the opportunity to unlock the back garage door.
Now that morning I was in a rush so I was running to Eric's house so I wouldn't be late for testing and as I was running I saw a from what I believe to be a purplish, dark colored car with two males inside wearing dark colored shirts, and both had short hair, but wasn't paying to much attention so I didn't see anything else. However when we were leaving I didn't see that car outside the clubhouse parking lot where I initially saw it earlier, and I mentioned that to Eric before we left.
When we got back after looking for it we waiting for his mom to get home and looked at the photo's taken from the camera, and saw that he came in at 12:43pm and left at 12:44pm. Now I'm 5-6 the height of the individual in the photos taken from the camera would haft to be about 5-10 or 5-11 around Eric's height which Ian, and Dillion fit that description, but Dillion has blonde hair, Ian has Black/Dark Brown.
Eric then remembered Ian saved his password on his computer, and supposedly left himself logged in. After going threw his messages he's asking multiple people to give him a ride from his place to Marquette/the parks and back to his place around the time he knew Eric would be leaving to drop me off at the YMCA, which is kind of close to his house. After Eric dropped me off he had to wait for Ian to come home, and he was walking home, and said that his girlfriend dropped him off at the wrong place. He also made an excuse that his boy is coming back from Cali, which I know he used to live in Denver, Colorado, but don't recall him mentioning anyone from Cali. Also Ian asked Eric to text him before he left, which Eric did.
Eric called Ian's dad Mike and asked him that when Ian came home to call him, and also discuss the money with Ian, which Ian still claims he never stole any money. Also his brother Colte hadn't heard from him that day. Initially Ian never answered any of Eric's calls that day except one, but answered and hungup without a word, very fast.
There was no police report filed the day of the incident, as we wanted Ian to man up and just give him the money back, but cause he didn't man up, and continued to lie a police report had to be filed the following day. Now one of the officers told us that the Facebook screenshots wouldn't be accepted by a judge. Which would be understandable as in Firefox the only way to edit a website is you need to get an addon like Firebug to do so, and then hide the addon after the edits by going to View/Toolbars/Customize, but we never tampered with the screenshots, nor edited them. Which doing it in Gimp you'd need to know the font, font size, line spacing, and would haft to deal with the line breakers, or horizontal rules in the messages which we never tampered with the screenshots.
So all the evidence we have is the Facebook messages, which maybe thrown out, and what Eric as well as Ian says, which is he said/she said crap. Although the white beanie in the video Eric's mom says she's seen Ian wear before. Also Ian does have a record, and is supposedly on parole.
The past few months Eric's been robbed 3 times (this recent one making 3) the last two Eric and I were leaving, and my wallet gets stole on May 15th. We've been friends with this dude sense 5th grade, trusted him, and he pulled this crap, and was planning on selling his mom, and dad's gaming computers, and ps3 (he has an xbox, Eric has a ps3) He never stole anything from me, but still a long friendship, and trust was broken over $2,000 dollars.
Now I'm just letting the cops do their job, but is there anyway to enhance/fix the blur from the image(s)? That way to get a positive ID on the suspect?
Unfortunately the file size of the camera's photos animation, zip are to big to upload on here so I just uploaded one of the images that isn't as blurred as the others.EDIT
