AG Heroes | Alarm Operator Deters Burglar From Entering Home

Mar 11, 2014 3:17:42 PM

JACKSON, MS – Earnestine and her family came home to discover police were all around. They informed her that her back kitchen window had been shattered by a brick. Police theorized that after he threw the brick, the burglar began bending the iron bars around the window when he heard a voice come from inside the house.

A neighboring witness confirmed the theory saying she had heard a voice as well and figured someone was home and scared the man off.

What they heard was AG team member Stevie saying: "This is Stevie, please identify yourself!” multiple times from the alarm system speaker.

Earnestine called AvantGuard to thank them for their quick actions on her behalf. "Thank you, thank you, and bless you all for what you have done to protect my family’s home.” Earnestine expressed.

AvantGuard was pleased to learn that besides a broken window, nothing was stolen in her home.

We thank AG team member Stevie for her protective care on Earnestine’s behalf. We extend our appreciation to the alarm dealer who installed this system, giving Earnestine, and many like her, the confidence in knowing that their home is monitored 24/7.

We express gratitude for the AvantGuard team and their dedicated and constant endeavor to protect the lives and properties of their customers.
