Audio Security of Voices Leads to Two Arrests, Recovery of Property

Police arrested two people suspected of attempting to burglarize a school’s portable classroom and recovered stolen property after Sonitrol Pacific detected the threat September 18.

Monitoring Operator Bricia Mejia received an impact-activated alert from the portable classroom and heard the voices of two men.  She immediately called police.  Mejia continued to hear the intruders’ voices while police were on their way and kept authorities informed.

Upon arriving at the school, officers promptly located and arrested one suspect.  A police dog was used to track down the second suspect.  Unfortunately, the man failed to surrender despite warnings from police and was bitten by the dog.

When caught, the suspects had a laptop, computer equipment, projectors, printers and a first aid kit from the school.
