Sonitrol Pacific security audio of crashing sounds and footsteps resulted in the dispatch of police and apprehension of three suspected vandals on the roof of an Everett area school June 26.

Monitoring Operator Kris Etheridge received an impact-activated audio security alert from the school.  She heard a crashing noise followed by what sounded like footsteps and called Mukilteo Police.

Police located three men on the school’s roof and took them into custody.  In addition to trespassing, the police also suspect the three are responsible for a broken window.
