Sonitrol’s Verified Security Assists Lexington Police in Apprehension

Lexington, KY – On Thursday, June 13, Lexington Police apprehended a criminal after responding to a verified alarm at our client's location. According to the police report, officers were dispatched in reference to the Sonitrol verified alarm. Upon arrival, the suspect was observed by police running out of our client's location. The officers pursued on foot and were able to catch the suspect, where he was arrested for two counts of Burglary, Assault and Fleeing and Evading.

It was later determined that the suspect had actually broken into the property next door to our client's location and used a hammer and chisel to break through the wall into our client's location. Because our client has verified audio detection, the monitoring station received sounds of "loud banging, glass breaking and movement" inside the facility and was able to contact the police while the burglary was in progress.

Sonitrol of Lexington followed up with our client the next day who advised that a male intruder gained only partial entry through a glass door. The stolen items were recovered and no other damage to the building was found.
