why do they need it if they have video?

Today at work I heard the managers talking about terminating someone because they stole some little paper things and that they needed a written statement from the person. My question is why the written statement? We have security cameras that I'm guessing caught the guy stealing, so again, why is this statement needed?

    If he acknowledges theft in writing he can't come back later and claim he was set up or the camera was there illegally, etc. Protects against wrongful dismissal claim.
