Sonitrol Pacific Security Helps Catch Two Criminals over Thanksgiving Weekend


Verified Electronic Security Company Stops Criminals in their Tracks Thanks to Unique Business Security Systems

SEATTLE, Wash. (November 27, 2012)Sonitrol Pacific, a verified electronic security company, helped prevent two separate break-ins at businesses over Thanksgiving weekend, thanks to audio–based silent alarms.

The first apprehension occurred on November 24. Sonitrol Pacific Verification Center operator Jessica Culver dispatched police at 10 p.m. after she received audio alerts from a bridal boutique in Everett, Wash. caused by loud, sharp bangs. Someone at a neighboring business, who knew that Sonitrol Pacific provided security for the shop, also called the Verification Center to say that a woman was throwing rocks at the business and that they had alerted police. Although there was damage to the window, Everett police arrived and took the woman into custody before she was able to get inside the store.

The second apprehension occurred at 2:15 a.m. the next day at a Moneytree retail branch. Operator Mike Young, who was recently recognized for his role in 200 apprehensions, helped make another catch when he received audio activations from a “deliberate scraping sound like someone trying to gain entry” at the location. He immediately dispatched police, who found the suspect on the roof of the building. He had been scraping and digging into the roof but had only created a baseball-size hole—much too small to have been able to gain entry into the highly-secured store.

Sonitrol Pacific is a Sound Security, Inc. company and operates throughout the Pacific Northwest. The company’s suite of integrated security solutions, including intrusion detection, keyless entry and video surveillance, has led to more than 5,700 suspected criminals being taken into police custody after verified intrusion detection by Sonitrol Pacific’s Verification Center in Everett, Wash.
