At 11:28pm a Stealth Monitoring operator used wireless surveillance to deter a Fort Worth, Texas shopping center break-in. A car drove down the back alley after the business was closed for the night.

A Stealth operator sounded an audible alarm to deter the trespasser and called the police. The suspect walked back to his car and left the property.
