Trespasser caught due to expert security monitoring

Ashley Sutton

A suspected school trespasser was apprehended after Sonitrol Pacific security sensors detected his activity and the monitoring operator took action February 4.

Operator Ashley Sutton received the security system activation about 7:30 in the evening.  She called the school district’s security guard service to investigate and continued to monitor activity at the school.

While the guard was on his way, Sutton received more alerts and indications of suspicious activity.  She updated the guard and police were called.

Tacoma Police located one man inside the school and took him into custody.  No damage was done and nothing was taken.

This was the second time in just a few weeks that Sonitrol Pacific’s security system and monitoring resulted in the apprehension of an individual at this school.  On January 22, police responded to Sonitrol Pacific’s call and caught a suspected trespasser.
