Sonitrol Pacific Thwarts Community Center Burglary

Marysville, WA, July 10, 2010 --( Banging sounds and voices picked up by audio security sensors allowed police to arrest a suspect before he could get inside a Marysville community center July 8.

Sonitrol Pacific Operator Jessica Culver received an impact-activated audio security alert from the Boys & Girls Club just after 4:00 a.m. Culver listened to what was happening at the club and sent police when she heard bangs and voices.

Officers used a police dog to track down and arrest one person.

The response from Culver and Marysville Police was so fast that the suspect only had time to break the outer pane of a double pane window before being arrested. He didn’t make it inside the club.

After the man was arrested, club employees found a few windows had been accidentally left open the previous night. Since the club is secured by audio sensors, even if the burglar had located an unlocked window, he would have been detected once inside.

In 2010, Sonitrol Pacific detections have led to more than 100 arrests of burglars, vandals and trespassers.
