School year starts with apprehension

Operator Michael Young

Police arrested a suspected trespasser inside a Puget Sound area school after Sonitrol Pacific’s security system detected him and the monitoring operator called officers September 6.

Operator Michael Young received the security system activations from the school, but only heard normal sounds.  He called a representative from the school who decided he would go investigate.  While the school district employee was on his way, Young heard a man’s voice and called police.

Officers caught one person.

According to the school district employee, the suspect got inside the school through an unlocked door.  He told police he was looking for a place to sleep and would be attending classes at that high school.
