That is interesting. I can assure that this is not illegal in Massachusetts. Although I do agree.that it is bad business.
In most cases, even the business that have security cameras are subpar and the footage retrieve from them are useless. Even when the security system is high quality, in most cases the perpetrators face is either concealed or not visible from the camera angle supplied.
Yes, I am a police officer and deal with this on a daily basis. It is very frustrating to have video surveillance and not be able to identify the party.
To the OP find a reputable business that cares about their customers. I would not be surprised if this crime was perpetrated by an employee of the storage lot or friend of an employee.
