Bike Thieves Busted After Break-In

Posted by Shawna Ivy on Jan 13, 2023

There are a variety of reasons for thieves to target multifamily communities. Many have facilities designed as a convenience for their residents- but to a determined thief, these spaces may seem more like an opportunity.

In this Arrest of the Month video, a pair of bike thieves break into the bike storage area of a Texas community, unaware that Stealth saw every move.

At 2:38 a.m., two men were seen by Stealth security professionals breaking into the bike storage room of a Texas multifamily residential community being monitored. The two left the bike room, each with a resident’s property in hand, unaware that the Stealth operator observing them had contacted local police. Officers intercepted and arrested the thieves as they attempted to leave, caught in the act only minutes later.

Live Video Monitoring Can Help Reduce Theft and Trespassing at Your Community

Adding facilities such as locked bike storage, gyms, electric vehicle charging stations, and so on are designed to make your community more appealing to potential residents. Unfortunately, that added value can backfire when thieves successfully steal or damage spaces that are meant for residents to use- leaving resident or community property destroyed or stolen.

A proactive security solution, like Stealth’s live video monitoring, can help deter criminal and other unwanted activity. Whether it is the sight of the cameras themselves, the audible alarms activated when someone suspicious enters an area being monitored, or the reputation your community will garner for fast police response whenever criminals dare to target your property, live video monitoring can make a huge impact.

Best of all, thanks to the human intelligence of trained security professionals and analytics-based cameras designed to detect activity rather than simple movement, there can be a reduction in false alarm calls, as well as police dispatch typically elevating call priority for your property.
