CHARLESTON -

When crimes are committed there are now more ways than ever before to track down the suspects.

Police said images taken from security cameras outside a Charleston bar show three men who have now been arrested in connection to a robbery and beating investigation. Investigators said those images helped them identify a group of University of Charleston basketball players who are now charged in the case.

Surveillance cameras also helped identify the suspects in the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

13 News asked people walking throughout Charleston Thursday how they feel about the number of cameras watching them at any given moment.

Some people say the cameras are an invasion of their privacy. Others said the cameras give them a sense of security.

Melissa Carte lives and works in Charleston. She said there is a thin line between safe and intrusive.

"There needs to be some serious regulations as to who puts the cameras up and who watches the videos and who is watching me right now," Carte said.
