Cops nab copper thief, thanks to CV monitoring

copper-thief-12-13-14Retail shopping centers are especially busy this time of year, but the customers entering through the front doors aren’t the only people shopping for something shiny this holiday season.

On December 13, 2014, at approximately 8:20 p.m., a Centralized Vision Operating Tech observed two suspicious males arrive on bikes at a retail shopping center in Phoenix, AZ. The men proceeded to the rear of the center and approached several secure boxes containing copper wiring and attempted to open them. The CV tech notified the authorities and Phoenix Police was dispatched to investigate. The officers arrived and located the two trespassers hiding behind a block wall. One suspect was immediately arrested.

And that’s one less Grinch roaming the streets. Watch the video here.

Real-time security monitoring by CV techs helps police arrest suspects

Rock-throwing break-inAt a high-end retail shopping center on Camelback Road, two suspects were observed throwing rocks into the glass door of a suite until it breaks. They then kick the rest of the glass down and enter the suite to grab a pair of expensive sunglasses. They then exit the back door of the suite, get in a truck, and drive away.

With an unmonitored camera system, this would be the end of the story. Unmonitored cameras simply record crimes to be viewed at a later time, and rarely give the victim any immediate recourse, much less any valuable information to pursue the criminals with.

In this case, real-time monitoring by Centralized Vision meant that authorities were immediately notified, and CV techs were able to provide police with the direction the vehicle was traveling when it exited the center, which proved to be very useful in tracking down the suspects, who were arrested a few miles from the scene.
