Catch of the Month - Apartment Mailbox Bomber in Washington DC
The Stealth Monitoring Catch of the Month takes places in front of a Class C apartment building in Washington DC. Such properties can suffer from depressed occupancy and marketability due to unwanted visitors, drug trafficking, vandalism, building and property damage, and theft.
At 12:32am a male suspect enters the camera view. He's likely known by the community as he's friendly with the passengers of a waiting car. He opens the door to help a woman with her infant and talks to the driver. He approaches the mailboxes where a female accomplice joins him. Suddenly they run away.
The bank of mailboxes explodes. The front panels slam open. Stealth operators call the authorities. The woman nonchalantly returns to check her work. A crowd gathers to see what happened. Residents sit on the steps to await the police.
Alerted to the crime by Stealth, the police promptly arrive 8 minutes later. But the bombers are gone.
Stealth live monitoring continues to watch the property for suspicious activity. Mail thieves can quickly profit from cash, gift cards, credit cards, and signed checks. Stealth operators had called the property manager when the mailboxes had been attacked. Later that morning the manager arrives. He takes photos of the mailbox and picks up the mail for safekeeping.
This property features a Pan Tilt Zoom camera that allows Stealth to follow suspects and magnify key details, such the manager's Maryland license plate. Stealth can provide critical information to police while crimes are in progress, such as the locations and activities of suspects, weapons, and vehicles.
