The gun shop owner should learn from these images that he needs to learn photography and use ideas from photography to improve surveillance photo imagery. It does not do much good to have surveillance cameras if it does not capture usable images. The first photo displayed shows silhouette of what looks like a black man behind a show case strongly backlit by a light in the back room. The gun shop owner should have turned out the back room light and leave the front shop room light on to capture the burglar's image. Or the shop owner could have bought a decent quality infra red surveillance camera that would have captured the burglar's image even in the dark.
Cropping and enlarging the image of the burglar would have been a good idea too. Wonder if anyone knows how to improve existing images that are too strongly backlit in color. A black and white surveillance camera would have allowed more manipulation of the image which might have shown what the burglar looks like even though the original was strongly back lit.

The second photograph should have been the one displayed in enlargement. Despite its colored graininess, their are some faint details of what looks like a bald black man's profile with perhaps enough detail in that profile someone might recognize. The TV station should have chose that photo as the larger one to display.
Please get serious about your surveillance images to show to the public. The TV station should have been able to choose the better image as the enlarged one.
