Car Thief Arrested at Auto Dealership

Posted by Norm Charney on April 16, 2019

Car lots can make ideal backdrops for criminal mischief, providing ample spots for thieves to hide.

A Stealth Monitoring security operator spotted an individual moving between cars and searching through a vehicle at a Beaumont, Texas automobile complex around 1:00 in the morning. The operator activated the on-site speaker warning, which the suspect ignored. We then contacted the local police who arrived to make an arrest.

Tires, wheels, catalytic converters and car accessories can be lucrative for thieves. The ability to protect such valuable inventory is extremely important for auto dealerships. Stealth’s proactive security solution uses a combination of video analytics and trained monitoring operators to watch cameras in real time and catch events as they happen – all while saving up to 60% on security when compared to guards.
