Disaster Averted! Live Video Leads to Arrest for Fire at Self-Storage Facility

Posted by Shawna Ivy on Apr 18, 2023

Self-storage units and facilities rely heavily on safety and security to appeal to potential and existing clients. Facility owners and managers prioritize effective security solutions in order to protect both the business and the property of clients who choose their business as the location to store their valuables, antiques, heirlooms, inventory, and more. Theft and burglary present one major security issue– but they aren’t the only safety concerns.  

Watch what happened when someone decided to start a fire just outside a unit at a Mississippi self-storage facility. 

At approximately 12:00 a.m., alert Stealth Monitoring security professionals observing a Mississippi self-storage facility spotted an individual accessing what appeared to be their unit, then setting up a fire steps away from the unit doors. Observing operators immediately contacted local law enforcement dispatch, and officers responded to the property quickly. Officers were observed taking the individual into custody before leaving the area.
