Erratic Individual Swinging Staff at Storefront Window Arrested

Posted by Peter Laing on Nov 11, 2022

Homelessness and lack of appropriate mental health care interventions can cause unfortunate side effects in communities, particularly for those who own and operate properties perceived as “public.”

In this Arrest of the Month video, an individual behaving in an unsafe and dangerous way was spotted by Stealth security professionals in the early morning hours outside a Texas storefront.

Just after 4:30 a.m., a Stealth security operator observed an individual behaving erratically outside a Texas business. The man was wildly waving some kind of staff, pacing back and forth in front of the windows and pointing emphatically as his pants fell further and further down his legs.

Our security professional reached out to local police right away to inform them of this risky behavior before it could escalate. Police quickly arrived on scene and placed the man in custody, removing him from the area.

Help Protect Your Shopping Center from Suspicious and Unwanted Behavior

Community shopping centers, along with other commercial spaces, are often seen as public rather than privately owned and operated. As a result, they are frequently sought out by transients and those experiencing homelessness, as well as individuals seeking a “public” space to conduct other illegal or unwanted activities. Nighttime increases these risks when businesses are closed, and fewer people are in the area.

Stealth’s proactive shopping center and retail security solution can help reduce and deter common concerns like loitering, transients, trespassing, theft, vandalism, and more. Rather than wait for damages and criminal activity to occur and combing through hours of security feeds to find footage, our live video monitoring service combines analytics-based cutting-edge security cameras and the human intelligence of trained security professionals to watch for- and respond to- suspicious activity as it happens.

Best of all, our customized security solution can save you up to 60% on security costs versus traditional methods. Ready to learn more? Contact us for details today.
