AUSTIN – Suspect arrested on Construction Property for theft
The last thing you want after Christmas break is coming back to a construction project that is missing expensive heavy equipment. Unfortunately, theft is more active around the holidays as construction thieves know that most job sites will be inactive and unguarded. In this video, a criminal was determined to steal from a construction project with obvious signs of security anyways.
Last Minute Christmas Shopping Gone Wrong
2 days before Christmas, SentriForce detected unauthorized activity on the construction property. A suspect was seen attempting to move heavy construction equipment. SentriForce monitoring personnel engaged audible alarms and dispatched Austin Police Department to the location. The suspect proceeded to remain on the property.
