Around 10:30 one night, a Stealth Monitoring security operator saw three people roaming around a car dealership. The group was looking into several vehicles in the lot. Our operator immediately activated the on-site speaker warning, which the suspects ignored.
The trespassers then got into their vehicle and drove to another part of the dealership. Our monitoring operator called to dispatch local police. Officers arrived within minutes, while the suspects were still on the property, and made an arrest.
There were nearly 2,400 auto thefts a day in 2020. – a 9.2% increase over 2019. Because of the high-dollar inventory that sits outside, automobile dealerships can attract all kinds of unwanted activity. This includes vandalism, inventory and car theft, as well as a number of other risks.
