Catch of the Month video: Barber Shop Thief Tackled by Police - narrated by Michael Zimmerman

"Well hello Stealth fans, I am Michael Zimmerman, owner of Green Earth Realty. We own, lease, and manage shopping centers in Texas including this asset in Duncanville, Texas you are looking at it right now. We have a combination of old and new cameras. We’ve been a longtime client of Stealth Monitoring and they have seriously helped me improve my properties by minimizing damage and improving marketability. This is a real video from my shopping center caught live by Stealth.

At 1:56 AM in the middle of the night on May 1st, there is an individual walking around my center with a bag. Stealth starts with the audio speaker and it is usually highly effective. I have seen all types of interesting ways of running away from this security system. The trespasser puts down his bag and leaves. This time, he comes back for more and you can see a large sledgehammer in his hand and is breaking into my barber tenant front door. I have no idea why he was so determined.

Stealth quickly calls the police. The thief breaks into the shop and crawls inside.

Several police vehicles begin to arrive just two minutes later. Police typically respond faster to Stealth calls because they know it’s a real crime in progress and not a false alarm like most calls from alarm systems.

The police are surrounding the property unsure of when the trespasser is about to exit the tenant space. Boom! The thief runs out the back door. He is quickly tackled and apprehended by waiting officers.
