Four vandals activate security system, apprehended

Security audio of glass breaking alerted a Sonitrol Pacific monitoring operator to vandalism in progress at a Tacoma area school July 5.

Operator Cami Halstead received the activation from the school’s security system a little after 6:00 p.m.  Listening to live audio activity, she heard a few loud bangs.  Halstead immediately called the school district’s security guard service to investigate.

The security guard found a broken window at the school and four children suspected of doing the breaking.
