The Eyewitness Success Blotter for March 20, 2020

These wins for local business owners happened between March 13, 2020 & March 19, 2020

We start off each week bringing you the news of crimes across the country – some without happy endings or resolutions, some where the bad guys get away. So, to that end, we like to end each week by providing you with a roundup of some of the best Eyewitness Success stories for the week – times when the good guys won and local businesses were protected from the worst.

Fleeing Auto Intruder Arrested

Date: 03.16.20     Metro Area: El Paso, TX

Overnight, Eyewitness monitored a man drive by a dealership slowly in a white SUV, checking the lot, then park across the street and come back on foot. Audio was used and the police were dispatched.

While waiting on the police to arrive, monitors observed the individual enter into a white pick up truck. Soon, though, the police arrived and the individual quickly got out of the car and ran. Officers saw him and chased him down and confirmed he was arrested off the lot.

Tire Thieves Caught, Wares Returned

Date: 03.18.20     Metro Area: Austin, TX

Eyewitness monitored a truck arrive on a dealership property and head to the used tire area. An individual exited the truck and began loading used tires – as such, the police were dispatched.

The police headed out and, as the truck was leaving the lot, the police arrived and stopped the subject from departing. Two occupants of the truck were then detained in handcuffs as police questioned them. Shortly after, the individuals were monitored backing the truck up to the used tire pile and putting the tires they had loaded back in place.

Large Group of Trespassers Deterred Mid-Attempted Break-In

Date: 03.18.20     Metro Area: Washington, DC

A large group of seven thought to take advantage of some trying times by attempting to break into an auto rental service overnight, but it did not go well.

Around 1:40 am, Remote Surveillance Professionals (RSPs) monitored those seven individuals arrive on the property after hours. Audio was used to deter them and police were dispatched at once, as the individuals began going in between vehicles.

While police were en route, the individuals attempted to get inside the booth on the lot. However, officers arrived, scaring the group, and the individuals ran off the property without completing any thefts.
