Police plucked two suspected trespassers from the roof of a Portland area school after Sonitrol Pacific’s audio security system detected them October 29.
Monitoring Operator Joe Orsborn received the impact-activated audio signal from the school just before midnight. He heard sounds of rustling and movement and immediately called the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Department.
Officers located two people on the school’s roof and apprehended them. The two were cited for trespassing and being minors in possession.
The suspects did not get inside the school and no property damage was done. A representative from the school district expressed gratitude for Sonitrol Pacific’s early and verified detection. The school has an extremely tight budget and costs from theft or vandalism would have been devastating.
