Multiple Individuals Caught on Surveillance Using Unknown Substance on Commercial Property

Posted by Matthew Clark on May 17, 2024


Loiterers using drugs and alcohol on private commercial properties pose a multifaceted issue- particularly on retail properties, which are by their nature designed to feel welcoming and inviting. However, property owners don’t want to welcome all kinds of behavior, like what was spotted in this Arrest of the Month video.

In the late afternoon, Stealth security professionals monitoring an Arizona shopping center spotted multiple individuals behaving suspiciously and took a closer look at the group. It was then clear that the group was using an unknown substance and loitering on the property. Audible alarms were activated, and local police were contacted with the details. Responding officers were observed making contact with the group and left the area after taking one of the individuals into police custody. 

Addressing loitering and substance abuse on commercial properties requires a balanced approach that respects legal rights and public health, while ensuring the safety and integrity of the property. Measures taken should be both preventive and responsive, helping to ensure compliance with state and federal laws while addressing the root causes and immediate impacts of issues like these on commercial properties.
