HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The staff of one Huntsville store is trying to keep costs down by increasing the presence of cameras inside their store.

At Mike's Merchandise off South Memorial Parkway, owners have implemented multiple sources of catching criminals, from video recording devices to off-duty police officers to undercover shoppers watching the moves of questionable customers.

Employees said it's the combination and variety of theft deterrent measures that helps put a dent in crime.

Store officials said since implementing all the measures, crime inside the store has dropped dramatically.
