Watch the Video: Multifamily Apartment Car Thief Arrested

At 1:20am a man walks through a Houston, Texas apartment parking lot. He attempts to break into numerous vehicles by trying their door handles.

When your property manager goes home, Stealth Monitoring live video surveillance can be on the job. Our trained operators can watch multifamily parking lots, gates, alleys, the leasing office, the clubhouse, pools, laundry rooms, and other common areas. Stealth calls the local police about the man’s suspicious behavior and location.

The thief finds an unlocked car. He steals a bag from the trunk. He finds an unlocked truck and gets inside.

Multifamily communities seek to provide a secure environment for their residents. But employees go home at the end of the day. Gates can be pushed opened or jumped over. Live security guards can be prohibitively expensive and only watch one part of an apartment complex at a time. Security patrols typically only drive through the parking lots and only for a small amount of time. Stealth live video monitoring can provide more effective security at a fraction of the price of a security guard.

Houston police arrive soon after and stop directly behind the truck. They do a quick walk of the property and return to arrest the thief who gives up.
