Door Kicking Group of Teenagers Detected, Detained, Released to Parents

For the second time in two weeks, Sonitrol Pacific detected threatening activity at a Puget Sound area high school and sent police to catch the suspected perpetrators August 31.

Operator Kris Etheridge received an impact-activated audio security alert from the school’s gym around 1 a.m.  She heard what sounded like a door opening and closing, followed by giggling and called authorities.  While the officers were on their way to the school, Etheridge could hear voices.

Everett Police located and detained five teenage girls.  The group admitted to kicking the door to the gym, but said they didn’t enter the school.  After questioning them, police turned the girls over to their parents.

On August 21, police detained three trespassers at this same school after Sonitrol Pacific detected them in the auditorium area.
