Man Caught Stealing from a Donation Box
At 2:10 a.m., a trained remote video monitoring operator sees a suspect wearing a baseball cap loitering in a Grand Prairie, Texas shopping center parking lot. The trespasser walks to the side of a donation box placed next to a light pole, then returns to the front of the box and peers inside. He hoists himself up into the box. The monitoring operator calls the local police as the suspect tosses bags of donated items out onto the ground.
Shopping centers present a number of security challenges, including loitering, trespassing, and vandalism. Trained monitoring operators often see suspicious visitors in the middle of the night, including unwanted activity in parking lots.
The suspect exits the donation box. He slings a full backpack over his shoulder, picks up two remaining bags and walks away. The police arrive and arrest the suspect out of camera view. An officer exits his SUV and takes the stolen bags from the back. He returns the bags to the donation box.
Stealth Monitoring’s trained security operators can see suspicious activity while it’s happening and take immediate action. Verified crimes in progress raise the priority level with police, which often results in quicker response times. This increases the likelihood that an arrest will be made while the criminals are still on the property.
