Four caught breaking into a Mitchell yard

By johnboy - 5 December 2012 4

ACT Policing will summons two men and two teenagers to court after police located them on the grounds of a Mitchell automotive business early yesterday morning (December 4).

Around 4.10am, Gungahlin General Duties officers were called to a Grimwade Street business after a security company’s CCTV showed four people scaling the perimeter fence and entering the premises.

Officers conducted a search of the business yard and located the men and teenagers inside.

The men, both aged 18, and the two 17-year-old teenagers, were taken in custody and conveyed to the Gungahlin Police Station. The men were questioned by investigating officers and released. The two teenagers were released into the custody of family members.

All the alleged offenders will be summonsed to face court on trespass charges at a later date.

This is what they are.
The images are terrible, but enough to discern between a person or a cat.

I wonder if the security cameras are those thermal type, that would trigger an alarm ? or some character noticing something on the monitors between yawning.

Probably neither.

Modern camera sensors are very sensitive to IR and have IR Cut filters – and Surveillace cameras have IR illuminators plus cut filters that switch out on low light levels so they can see in the dark. Either that or the area was fairly well lit. Add motion detection software that generates an alert and off you go.

You can get home cameras that do all that (including emailing you an alert picture or video) for under $100 now.

I imagine they would have set off a silent alarm/motion detector causing the secutiry company to check the cameras…
