At 1:56 am, the shopping center protection system detected unauthorized movement at a Duncanville, Texas shopping center. The client used a combination of old and new outdoor security cameras. The suspect walked around the commercial property with a bag. A trained shopping center protection operator activated the on-site speaker. The suspect placed his bag down and left. He returned to the shopping center with a sledge hammer.
Following the established shopping center protection protocol between Stealth Monitoring and the client, Stealth called the Duncanville Police. The thief broke the store glass window and crawled inside.
