Biking Property Thief Combs Apartment Parking Garage for Open Doors

Posted by Jamie Lynch on Dec 9, 2022

According to an FBI report, as of 2020, 41% of all stolen vehicles are taken from a residential parking space – and this includes garages and other multifamily community parking facilities.  

In this Arrest of the Month video, a thief looking to gain access to multiple vehicles didn’t know that Stealth operators were watching. 

Late at night, Stealth security professionals spotted a suspect riding a bike headed into a San Diego multifamily residential parking facility. After cruising the parking garage for a few minutes observing cars, the suspect began pulling on multiple car doors. As local law enforcement was contacted, the thief was observed opening and entering a vehicle, searching it for items to steal. Police arrived on scene shortly after and took the individual into custody
