Washington Unfinished Home is Site of Trespassing, Prowler Caught

Posted by Paul Gross on Nov 22, 2022

Accidents can happen on construction sites, and unfortunately even trespassers who injure themselves can be bold enough to hold the owner, developer, and general contractors liable for their hijinks, claiming negligence for failing to maintain secure premises. Trespassers are an ongoing concern for construction sites generally, but homes that are unfinished present their own sets of risks. 

Around 5:00 p.m., Stealth security operators noticed an individual trespassing on a Washington new home construction site. Onsite audible alarms were immediately activated, but the trespasser was undeterred, quickly heading into one of the unfinished homes and disappearing off camera.  

Local police dispatch was contacted and a description of the individual and their last known location was provided. Shortly after the call, officers arrived on scene, located the individual, and took him into custody.
