Stanwood, WA, June 13, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Police caught four students who broke into a Puget Sound area high school on Memorial Day after Sonitrol Pacific detected their activity with audio security sensors.
Operator Ashley Sutton received an impact-activated audio alert from the school just after 6:00 p.m. She didn’t hear any threatening sounds when listing to live audio at the school and discussed the activity with a representative from the school district. The two decided to send police to investigate.
Officers from the Stanwood Police Department responded quickly and found two young men behind the school. Those two led officers to two more high school age boys inside the school. The kids told police they got into the school through the roof. All four were taken into custody.
Due to the fast response by Sutton, the school district and the Stanwood Police Department, nothing was taken from the school and the only damage done was a broken bench.
