Trespassers Climb Industrial Ladder to Access Cannabis Facility

Posted by Mark Mariotti on August 3, 2021

After midnight, three individuals were observed by one of Stealth’s professional, detail-oriented security operators climbing an industrial ladder attached to the side of a cannabis business finding their way onto the roof. Our operator immediately contacted local police.

As police arrived, the operator observed items being thrown off the roof and individuals running from police. An officer appears to speak with an individual on a bicycle, while other officers search the premises, ascending the ladder and shining lights into the front door of the facility.

Our operator reported that police chased the individuals and confirmed they were arrested.
