Security is something AA Storage manager Sandra Canton considers a must.
"Whether it's yearbooks or wedding photos it's your treasures," she said of what people store inside the units.
Fences and gates keep people out while programmable key codes offer only those allowed entry in.
With 24-hour surveillance video, Canton is in control even after you've gained entry beyond the gate.
"Our software allows me to look in on who's visiting from my living room. We are able to see at any given time of the day or night ," she said.
That may be a good thing, with Garland County Sheriff's deputies arresting five men suspected of running a burglary ring over the last few weeks.
"We're talking electronics, TVs just about anything a criminal thinks could hold some value on the street, they're taking it," said Deputy AJ Tart.
Deputies believe the burglars targeted homes, but also several storage units in Jessieville, stealing thousands of dollars in property.
"At this point we really don't have a reason why, other than they were leading a life of crime," Tart said. "But it feels good to know our deputies have worked countless hours to catch these people. Now we're working to return all this property to the people who have reported it stolen."
Surveillance photos and videos played a role in the arrests, and Tart suggests prospective storage unit renters consider what security is on site when they go to pick out a property to rent.
"Surveillance can be a big help if something is stolen," Tart said. "But you can make it more difficult for someone to make you a victim by keeping a close tally and list of what's in your storage unit and checking it regularly. If it's been a week or so since you've been over there, it might be time to check in and make sure everything is in order. "
Crime is something Canton monitors as closely as her cameras to protect her customers and keep their priceless possessions right where they belong.
"We read the newspaper every day, we check in with the Sheriff and police logs," she said. "When we see a rash of crime we become even more diligent on patrolling the property by changing up our schedules and making it less predictable for when we'll be doing walk throughs."
The investigation into what deputies are calling a burglary ring is ongoing, and according to Deputy Tart more charges could come for those already behind bars and additional arrests could be made as well.
