Laundry Room at Texas Apartment Community Proves an Appealing Hang Out Spot for Late-Night Substance Use

Posted by Shawna Ivy on Jul 25, 2023

Amenities are an important component in successful multifamily residential properties, but as much as they appeal to residents, they are also frequent targets of a variety of security concerns. From groups using pools and spas after hours, to lounge break-ins, shady activity in laundry rooms, and parking garage raiders– amenities are the locations of a wide range of unwanted activity. 

In the video below, a pair of individuals chose a Texas apartment community’s laundry room as their late-night party spot- unaware that Stealth security operators could see what they were up to. 

At approximately 2:30 in the morning, Stealth security professionals monitoring a Texas multifamily residential community noticed two individuals entering a community laundry facility. The individuals appeared to be utilizing the laundry room as a place to partake in substance use of some kind, leading Stealth’s observing security operators to swiftly contact local police dispatch. Law enforcement officers arrived on site, made contact with the individuals, and proceeded to search their belongings. One individual, whose backpack contained what appeared to be a large baggie of marijuana, was taken into custody.
