Apartment Theft and Vandalism in New Orleans

Posted by Chris O' Rourke on July 29, 2015

Safety is extremely important, especially in apartment complexes, shopping centers, office buildings, and industrial facilities. Surveillance videos have become vital parts of security. They can help deter theft, criminal activity, and other serious crimes. Lack of such services reduces safety of residents, profits for business owners, and allows apartment theft and vandalism to increase.

Two apartment complexes in New Orleans learned the hard way why professional security measures are so important. The results of a Fox 8 Crime Tracker Investigation in New Orleans reported thousands of burglaries across the city in 2014. One apartment experienced eight burglaries, while another experienced five. Both apartment buildings lacked security, aside from security lights. The security lights were not properly deterring crime with many broken or missing bulbs. Chilling surveillance video does show burglars on Bancroft Drive in Lakeview. These type of crimes have been happening on a regular basis these past two years. Thousands of people were victims of burglary in 2014 alone.

Apartment residents reported possessions stolen from patios, several cars vandalized and some cable lines were also cut. Some residents feared for safety and were moving.

These apartment buildings are not clients of Stealth Monitoring.
