Muffled movement activates audio security sensor

Kris Etheridge

Muffled sounds of movement captured by security audio sensors inside a Puget Sound area middle school led a Sonitrol Pacific operator to call police and police to arrest one October 20.

Monitoring Operator Kris Etheridge received security audio of muffled sounds of possible movement and something falling around 3:30 a.m.  Listening a few moments longer, she heard more indications of someone inside the school and called Lakewood Police. While officers were on their way, Etheridge heard glass breaking followed by prying noises.

Using a police dog, officers tracked down one intruder and took him into custody.
