The brother of the Las Vegas shooter has recently been arrested. According to reports, Bruce Paddock was taken into custody for charges stemming from child pornography.
Now, police are opening up about how he managed to evade them for years. Officials claim Bruce had been on the run for more than 2 years.
“The tactics Stephen Paddock's brother used to avoid authorities are being described as ‘evil smart’ ... and have disturbing connections to the Vegas shooting,” according to TMZ.
Reports state that Bruce evaded police by using some incredible hiding skills. He is said to have changed his appearance and moved frequently. He also used booby traps at his personal residences.
“Our sources say Bruce rigged up places he was living with booby traps that included propane tanks tied to doors ... and used cameras to create homemade surveillance systems around his properties,” according to reports.
The information is startling because it has some resemblances to the surveillance tactics Stephen Paddock used in the Vegas shooting. Accordion to officials, in that case, Paddock rigged up a security camera to alert him to police while he fired at the crowd in Vegas.
