Operator Joe Orsborn

A suspected serial burglar was found hiding behind insulation in a wall of a Seattle area furniture store after Sonitrol Pacific’s audio security system detected the break-in April 26.

Monitoring Operator Joe Orsborn received an impact-activated audio security alert from the store just before midnight. He heard a crashing sound followed by banging noises and called Seattle Police.

Police used a police dog to search the store and located a man. The suspect had torn insulation out of a wall to hide behind.

According to police, the man was the suspect in multiple break-ins in the area and officers were excited to catch him.
