Attempted Theft at Manufacturing Facility

Posted by Sean Murphy on Jun 2, 2020

Manufacturing facilities have many assets to protect, including their employees and the products they produce. They are also challenged with numerous threats from property damage and merchandise theft, to organized crime and internal breaches.

In the following video, a Stealth security operator saw four individuals climbing over the fence at a Fort Worth manufacturing facility.

The suspects wandered around the facility attempting to pick up items along their way. Because there were no audio warning speakers onsite, our operator contacted police. When officers arrived, the four perpetrators took off on foot. The police pursued them and caught up with three of the four. Those three were promptly arrested while officers continued their search for the fourth suspect.

The Need for Manufacturing Security

As part of your inventory investment, tools and materials are easy targets for thieves. Often unmarked and unregistered, smaller equipment and hand tools can easily be resold. In addition, raw materials like wood and metals, specifically copper, are hot commodities. Lose enough of this precious inventory and it can affect your bottom line.
