WNYT-TV is reporting that a Schenectady County, N.Y., black business owner's surveillance cameras captured an undercover police informant planting and photographing crack cocaine, which ultimately led to the man's arrest.

Schenectady County police reportedly were suspicious of Donald Andrews Jr., who owns a smoke shop in Scotia, N.Y., and decided to send the undercover informant to gather intelligence, reports show. During his second visit, the informant was caught planting evidence and photographing what appears to be crack cocaine.

Andrews was arrested and later released after producing the incriminating evidence, which was captured by his seven-camera surveillance system. The undercover informant reportedly is on the run.
