The events registered by the CREDO detectors are expected to be traces of high energy (minimum ionizing) particles passing the matrix of the covered iPhone camera. The fluctuations in the dark frames, however, could mimic the sought signs. We discus the method to separate muon events from this `noise'. For the present work we used the PC web camera instead of the iPhone
of the original CREDO Project and obtained results have to be confirmed by the further studies.
We propose some way of discrimination of suspected muon events, but it should be stressed that we do not have proof (yet) that the selected events are indeed traces of cosmic ray particle.
