Recent East Idaho Local Theft

Chubbuck, ID – January 17, 2019

Early Thursday morning, around 5 AM, a theft occurred in a Chubbuck neighborhood. The driver of a white pickup truck stole multiple truck tailgates from parked trucks within the neighborhood. A house in the neighborhood had a security system with cameras installed that were able to capture the suspect loading the tailgates into his truck. Because of the preparedness of this neighbor, details of the truck and suspect will help lead to capturing him and the return of the truck owner’s tailgates. If there were no security cameras installed, they would not have been able to capture these key helpful details.

Idaho Falls, ID – February 17, 2019

Early Sunday morning, an attempted armed robbery occurred within a local Idaho Falls home. The suspect entered into the victims home armed with a shotgun. The homeowner’s quick action against the robber saved both his and his fiancé’s life. The homeowner has a security camera installed in their front room that was able to capture the incident. The footage shows the armed robber entering the home and yelling for the homeowner to get on the ground. He slowly approaches the robber and then springs into action grabbing hold of the firearm. Next is a terrifying scuffle between the two that results in the robber dragging the homeowner down the stairs as he makes his getaway. Once the scuffle proceeded down the stairs, the fiancé ran into an adjacent room to safety to call the police. The home security camera footage that was captured helped the police identify the suspect and place them into custody. Even though the homeowner has an inner camera installed, he states he is looking into adding even more security into his home plus he will be sure to always lock his doors. The homeowner stated he had no idea who the man was. Without the captured security footage, the police would not have been able to identify the suspect.

Idaho Falls, ID – February 25, 2019

On the early morning of Monday, February 25, a local Idaho Falls lawn care company was the victim of theft. Officers were called to the scene at 3:30 AM when the break-in appeared to occur somewhere between 2:30 and 2:45 AM. According to the business owner, two four-wheelers with plows attached, a handgun, a laptop, and cash were all stolen from the premises. The business owner says it appears a truck dropped off the burglars who then burglarized the office and then used the four-wheelers as their getaway. The business owner is offering a $5000 reward for any information that will lead to the return of the stolen items and the prosecution of those involved.

From the sound of it, it doesn’t seem the business had an active alarm system with cameras. If there were cameras installed, they could have caught the action on tape and given details of the burglars and the truck involved. Also, an active alarm system would have alerted the authorities of the break-in allowing them to arrive at the scene during the time of theft as opposed to later on. Having a business security system installed could potentially save you hundreds in repairs and costs of replacing any stolen items. Businesses with expensive equipment are more likely to be targeted. Don’t let yourself fall victim to theft.

How a Security System Could Help You

One of the perks of living in East Idaho is low crime rates. However, this doesn’t mean that crime does not happen. You may not think you would ever fall victim to a break-in or theft, but the random chances you could be are something you don’t want to gamble with. Having a security system installed within your home or business is insurance for your safety and possessions. Think of an alarm system as you would health insurance. You pay monthly for health insurance that you may or may not ever use. Come the day you end up in the doctor’s office looking down at a bill for your care you will be grateful you have the insurance to fall back on to aid you. The same goes for a home or business alarm system. You may or may not ever have to use it, but on the off chance you become the victim, you will be happy you had one installed.

The presence of a security system alone acts as a deterrent against burglars. Many burglars will scout out an area before attempting the break-in. If they see an active alarm system is installed it could discourage them from attempting it at all. If they are the gutsy type, they may still attempt it. This is where your alarm system and cameras come into play. Once your home or business is breached, the alarm will sound at the same time alerting your local authorities to arrive on the scene. Exterior and interior cameras will be able to capture footage of the suspect and all activity. This priceless footage could mean the capture of the suspect, and if any items were taken, the return of said stolen items.
