BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com first reported a few days ago that Boca Raton police nabbed three men believed to be involved with several burglaries throughout the area over the past several months. Now comes word that the arrest of Yves Gissomme is the result of not just great police work, but a burglar alarm. It turns out burglar alarms actually make a difference.
Police tell us that they were alerted to a motion sensor being activated in a living room on Lariat Circle. Instead of just brushing it off as a false alarm, Boca police responded and say they found Gissomme in the area. They stopped him, questioned him, and later arrested him.
We don’t want to be preachy here, but it’s a great lesson for anyone — us included — who often wonder if $20-$30 a month for alarm monitoring is worth it. Turns out it is. Gissome is still being held on $15,000 bond.
