Man Allegedly Steals Security Camera So Grandma Won’t See Him Masturbate


It was a stroke of bad luck.

A burglary suspect in West Virginia has a bizarre rationale behind allegedly stealing a home’s security cameras: He didn’t want his grandma to see him masturbating.

Tristan Tucker of St. Albans was charged with daytime burglary last Thursday for a crime reported on April 23 to the Dunbar Police Dept

Tucker’s grandmother accused him of repeatedly breaking into her house through a window and disarming security cameras and DVR system, according to

As the phone was charging, Tucker said he started watching porn on it and that led him to masturbate, according to WLOS TV.

That’s when Tucker found himself in a sticky situation. He didn’t want his grandmother to see him masturbating in her home so he allegedly stole “the security cameras and the DVR box,” according to a criminal complaint obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Tucker then said he stomped on the cameras before throwing them away in the river.

But here’s the rub. Tucker didn’t destroy the DVR. He allegedly just hid it somewhere on his grandma’s property.

The criminal complaint did not note whether or not the footage showed Tucker pleasuring himself.

He remains behind bars at a local jail on $10,000 bond.

No word on whether he sent his grandmother a Mother’s Day card.
