Squirrels Trigger Alarm, Disturb Peace

A Rumstick Road home's burglar alarm caused quite a commotion Saturday afternoon before it was deactivated by the alarm company.

Squirrels triggering a burglar alarm had the neighbors of a 60 Rumstick Road homeowner quite upset last Saturday afternoon.

The owner of the home at 60 Rumstick Road was away on a vacation in Mexico when his alarm continued to blare, according to Barrington Police Chief John LaCross. The owner could not be reached.

A neighbor on Thomas Street contacted the police about 2 pm to report the disturbance and to file a formal complant. National Security, the alarm company, ultimately deactivated the system, LaCross said.

A visit by the owner of the alarm company to the Thomas Street caller later in the afternoon also triggered another complaint of disorderly conduct. She said the alarm company owner made threatening comments after she complained about the alarm to the firm’s dispatcher, LaCross said.

“He asked her to leave the dispatcher alone,” allegedly because she was being harassed by the Thomas Street woman, said LaCross. No one was charged.

The homeowner returned on Sunday to find the alarm deactivated. He also found the cause of the commotion: squirrels going into and out of his attic, which the motion detector picked up to trigger the burglar alarm.
