Industrial Security System Assists Fort Worth Police in Arrest

Posted by Sean Murphy on July 20, 2017

An industrial security system can help protect your warehouse and outdoor assets from would-be thieves and vandals. One morning, a Stealth client experienced its benefits firsthand. A trespasser attempted to steal metal parts and was arrested by Fort Worth Police.

The Forklift Thief

At 8:43am, a vehicle passed outside a Fort Worth, Texas warehouse on a holiday weekend. A few minutes later, a male walked beside the security fence. A Stealth Monitoring industrial security operator saw the individual and watched his movements via outdoor surveillance cameras.

The intruder gained access to the industrial warehouse property. He stacked heavy metal rings onto a pallet. A Stealth industrial security monitor called the facility manager. The facility manager said the trespasser on the warehouse property was unauthorized. Stealth called the Fort Worth Police. The trained industrial security operator continued to watch the trespasser's movements.

Warehouses, industrial facilities, recycling centers, salvage yards, and construction sites all have outdoor assets. The sight of a fence deters casual trespassers, but determined burglars are able to jump over the fence or cut it open. Who will watch over your industrial site when nobody is around?

The thief walked away from the security system camera's view and returned with a forklift. He used the forklift to pick up a palette of industrial parts and move it down the alley. The suspect almost got away from the the industrial property. Suddenly, the Fort Worth Police appeared at the intersection. The responding police officers arrested the suspect out of the industrial security camera's view.

Industrial security guards are expensive. A security guard can only see one area of a commercial property at a time. As a result, smart criminals can easily sneak into the property and steal outdoor assets with very little resistance.
