A bang, a crash and an arrest

Kris Etheridge

Police arrested a person suspected of attempting to break into a Puget Sound area school after Sonitrol Pacific’s audio security detected suspicious sounds and called authorities September 21.

Monitoring Operator Kris Etheridge received the initial alert just before midnight, heard banging sounds and called police.  Moments later, Etheridge heard a crashing noise and updated authorities.

Officers were on scene quickly and located one suspect on school property.  They found broken windows, but confirmed no one got inside the school.

The suspect was taken into custody for the damage done.
