Rooftop break-in detected, 2 arrested, electronics recovered

Police arrested two people suspected of breaking into a Puget Sound area high school through a roof hatch and attempting to steal electronic equipment after Sonitrol Pacific’s security system detected the intruders July 2.

Operator Kathleen Armstrong received the system activation a little after 8:00 p.m., triggered by a signal from a roof hatch at the school.  She called the school district’s security guard service and Mukilteo Police.

Officers arrived within three minutes of Armstrong’s call and caught two people.  An undisclosed amount of electronics were recovered from the two suspected burglars.

Special “thanks” to the Mukilteo Police Department.
