John was a goldsmith who had a roaring business. A successful businessman, he was aware of the many enemies in his profession. So he had installed cameras in his shop. 

One day, he started feeling uneasy in his sleep. He began to sense that something was going wrong.

He called his brothers who were business partners and they went to the shop. As per John's thoughts, the lock was broken but the door was closed. Amused and horrified by the scene of events, John's brother called the cops while the others went inside to check the damage (missing items).

The cops came promptly within two minutes and there were clear signs of robbery in the shop. But John could not locate what was missing. Every ornament was intact.

Then the cop chipped in," Can we have a look at the recordings of the cameras?" "Sure," said one of the brothers.

That was when they realized, that the burglars had stolen all the expensive cameras installed in the shop.

John and his brothers have lodged a complaint and the search is on for the burglars.
