Vandals detected by audio, caught

Bricia Mejia

Sonitrol Pacific’s security system at a Puget Sound school detected vandals breaking windows and the monitoring operator sent officials to apprehend the suspects November 14.

The school’s security system alert was received by Operator Bricia Mejia just before 5 p.m. Mejia heard sounds indicating kids were throwing rocks at windows to break the glass and called the district’s security guard service.

The guard located two juveniles in the area of the school where the audio security sensors were being triggered and detained them. The two were released to their parents.

Five windows were broken, but the kids were caught before any more damage could be done.
