Suspect Arrested After Attempted Theft on Washington Construction Site

Posted by Paul Gross on Jan 18, 2023

When it comes to security risks, construction sites face a wide variety of concerns. Expensive and dangerous equipment and tools that must be left outdoors, tools and materials that are particularly appealing to thieves and vandals, and an unfinished building site that may present various risks to those not knowledgeable about safety precautions. All these reasons explain why trespassing and theft are both major concerns for construction businesses.

Late at night, a Stealth security professional monitoring a Bremerton, Washington construction site spotted an individual trespassing from the northeast vicinity of the jobsite. As the security staff observed, the individual loitered for a few moments before beginning to gather materials from a variety of areas within the jobsite. Local police dispatch was immediately contacted due to the nature of the activity observed. Officers arrived on site shortly after, making contact with, and ultimately arresting the suspect.
