Lake Stevens, WA, January 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- A Sonitrol Pacific operator heard two chatty intruders over a school’s audio security system and sent Snohomish County Sheriff’s Deputies to take them into custody December 23.
Award winning operator Jaime Mananville received the impact activated signal from the school and listened to real-time audio to verify the alarm. She heard two people talking and called deputies.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the school within minutes and found a man and woman inside one of the portable classrooms. Both were taken into custody.
Deputies found drug paraphernalia in the portable classroom along with the two intruders and suspect they broke into the classroom to smoke marijuana.
Sonitrol Pacific’s security system recorded everything the two suspects said from the time they activated the audio sensors until they were arrested. At one point, the man says he’s afraid the school’s security system will send police and the woman tells him the school must not have a system since no alarm sounded. Sonitrol Pacific designs systems with silent alarms to ensure criminals are arrested. Since 1978, more than 5,000 criminals have been arrested after a Sonitrol Pacific security system detected them.
