PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Port Washington police say their new Flock camera system helped them apprehend two people Sunday, April 17, who had stolen a vehicle from Michigan.

The police department says the camera system records descriptions of vehicles driving into Port Washington, including the vehicle type, color and license plate, and alerts police if the vehicle or tags are stolen. 

The system also alerts police to vehicles with Amber and Silver Alerts. 

Authorities say in addition to charges of operating without owner's consent, the suspects were also arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and a probation and parole warrant.

Police say the Flock cameras were leased with financing from the Port Washington Lion's Club as well as the Port Washington-Saukville Rotary Club.
