BrickHouse Security Scavenger Hunt 2011

This week, the BrickHouse family spent some time together outside of the confines of our office. We retained the services of the good people at CityHUNT, who put together a fantastically fun scavenger hunt for us. We were broken down into teams and wandered the streets of Manhattan around Grand Central Terminal, looking to take a specific list of photos. Goals ranged from getting a picture of a team member driving a cab to a photo of your entire team under water. It was a great time, and we really want to extend our deepest thanks to CityHUNT.

Runaway Squad Locates Missing Teen with Help from Brickhouse Security

a-and-e-new-logoRunaway Squad, a television series on A&E dedicated to finding and bringing home runaway kids, recently aired an episode that focused on a case they solved with help from Brickhouse Security. The episode features Tayvela, the fifteen year-old daughter of a hardworking (but often not around) Haitian immigrant studying to be a nurse in the United States. When Tayvela went missing, her mother turned to Runaway Squad to find her teenager.

Retired NYPD officer and current Private Investigator Joe Mazzilli and his team used Brickhouse Security’s Cell Phone Spy to download essential information that led to a crucial break in the case. Using the Cell Phone Spy, they discovered Tayvela’s passwords to her email addresses and social networking sites and also pictures of her being exploited on the Internet. With Mazzilli’s expertise on the subject and the evidence they had, the investigators speculated that Tayvela had become part of a gang that was exploiting her to make money. Through more investigative work Mazzilli’s team was able to locate her in a Brooklyn brothel, and they were ultimately able to reunite her safely with her mother, almost nine months after she originally disappeared.
