“My apartment complex has experienced an outbreak of theft-related incidents, mostly within its parking garage. After being a recent victim of attempted auto-theft which result in significant damage to my vehicle among 2 others like it in the same night, I have decided to take a proactive stance on addressing this issue myself. It has become apparent that a more comprehensive, active, and intelligent video surveillance solution is necessary to thwart this chronic problem.”

Another apartment theft occurred at a Roseville, California multifamily apartment complex. Roseville is located in the Sacramento area. Thieves broke into mailboxes at the California apartment complex. A witness called the Roseville Police. The apartment theft took place at about 5:30am.
The witness gave a description of the suspects to the police. The apartment theft duo was arrested by the responding officers. The suspects had mail from several multifamily apartment complexes in the area. The stolen mail included credit cards, statements, and other personal information that can be used to identify theft.
