Fast officer response to a call from Sonitrol Pacific about a possible break-in at a Puget Sound area high school resulted in the apprehension of four suspected burglars August 16.
Monitoring Operator Michael Young received the impact-activated audio alert from the school a little past 2 a.m. In addition to the usual sounds of equipment running, he heard what could be people moving around inside and called the school’s security guard service.
Soon after placing the call, Young heard more definite sounds of movement, followed by men’s voices and immediately called the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies apprehended four people suspected of breaking into the school
with the intent of burglarizing it.
