DALLAS, TX USA – June 4, 2014 – Two men and one woman were charged by Charleston police with breaking and entering at Capitol Mini Storage on May 30th in Charleston, West Virginia.

Unlike other security companies, Stealth Monitoring can watch crime live as it happens and can immediately warn trespassers and call police. On May 30th Stealth’s trained operators observed multiple individuals on the Capital Mini Storage property after normal business hours. One individual appeared to act as a lookout. Stealth reported a crime in progress to Charleston Police.

According to CBS affiliate WOWK TV, when Charleston police arrived, they found two men breaking into a unit. When the men saw police, they ran from the unit, making it through a hole in the fence of the business. More police were waiting for them and they immediately gave up and were placed in custody. A black Chevy Camero, parked near the hole in the fence, drew the attention of police and they found a third person lying in the front seat. The driver admitted to police that she came to the area with one of the men, according to a criminal complaint. The three suspects were charged with breaking and entering, and are being held in the South Central Regional Jail.”

The Stealth Monitoring Difference

Stealth Monitoring delivers custom turnkey security solutions to clients that encompass detailed site surveys and planning, the latest digital IP and wireless technology, sophisticated installation, and proactive live monitoring.

Many businesses rely on passive cameras, security guards, or alarm systems. But unwatched cameras can’t report an incident in progress. Guards are expensive and can’t watch an entire property. Trigger-based alarms result in as many as 95% false dispatches.

In comparison Stealth Monitoring is proactive. Stealth can see and follow intruders when they first enter camera views, often before they have breached property lines. Stealth audio warnings can warn and scare trespassers off before they break into buildings and steal or cause damage. Trained operators can immediately call police in real time, giving the authorities an opportunity to arrive while criminals are still there. Stealth operators can share valuable information on suspects, weapons, vehicles, and other relevant details directly with the police.
