OTTAWA, June 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - March Networks(R) (TSX: MN), a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that high-quality surveillance video from its Mobile Solution led Orange County officials to a man suspected in an alleged molestation of a teenage girl on an Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) bus. The successful use of the video evidence marks the third time March Networks technology has been used in recent, high-profile cases to deliver a greater level of protection to communities through the apprehension of suspects. Clear video from March Networks systems recently led to an arrest and guilty plea in a shooting on a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) bus, and to the arrest in a separate incident of a man suspected of setting a TTC bus on fire.
In the Orange County case, the suspect was identified by a parole officer who recognized him from the clear video footage featured in a TV news broadcast and contacted police. Watch the OCTA surveillance video
