Deputies took four juveniles into custody suspected of breaking into a school’s band room after Sonitrol Pacific’s audio security system “heard” voices August 29.
Operator Kris Etheridge received the security alarm from the school’s band room just before 1:30 a.m. She heard a metallic clang and a voice and called the King County Sheriff’s Department. While officers were on their way, Etheridge received more system activations, one from the kitchen area. She kept them updated on the activity as intruders moved through the building.
Deputies used a police dog to search the facility and tracked down four students of the school.
According to officers, the four got in through a broken door. They didn’t take anything or do any damage.
The door was promptly fixed.
