No Picture?

Am I the only one that finds this a bit odd?

Both the Times- Standard and Eureka Reporter gave a warning to business owners, with a picture, about Tara Lee Seagall. She's been going around Eureka writing counterfeit checks. The very next day she's recognized at a business, because of the published photograph of her, and she's been arrested.

I have to wonder why both the Eureka Reporter and the Times- Standard have a short story today about a burglary suspect being sought. Surveillance photos of him breaking into a house in Eureka (just a few blocks from my house) were taken. Both papers give a description of the suspect but don't show the surveillance photos. What gives?

The photos were so bad they couldn't be reproduced in newsprint. That's the long and short of it.

Print the surveillance photos anyway... worth a shot. sometimes it is the way a person carries themselves that gives them away, or some small detail that people see.

True. I haven't recognized some of the people whose pics were posted in the papers, for various crime stories. But I didn't know them. Maybe some folks who did know them DID recognize them, and that's why they ended up turning themselves in?
