Sonitrol Pacific Security audio picks up rooftop clatter, police pick up three trespassers

Sonitrol Pacific security audio indicating people were on the roof of a Puget Sound area school and possibly trying to break-in resulted in police catching three trespassers October 9.

Monitoring Operator Ashley Sutton received an impact-activated signal from audio sensors inside the school just before 5 p.m.  She heard a clatter and other noises indicating people were outside the school and called the district’s security guard service to investigate.

While the guard was on his way, Sutton heard rattling noises and other sounds indicating the people were trying to get inside the school through the roof.  She updated the guard.  He asked police be called to meet him there.

Police located three kids on the school roof.  They were detained until their parents came to pick them up.
