GVI Samsung Cameras Help Police Track Down ATM Bandits

CARROLLTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 2, 2008) - GVI Security Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GVSS), a leading provider of video security surveillance solutions featuring the complete Samsung Electronics line of products, announced that surveillance video captured by GVI Samsung cameras was featured in an NBC news broadcast.

NBC WPTV NewsChannel 5 in West Palm Beach, Florida, reported in a story broadcast on the station (the video is available on the web, see link below) that investigators at the Broward County Sheriff's Office are using surveillance video to track down bandits who stole a 20 ton recycling truck from Amerigrow Recycling and then used the truck to snatch a cash machine from a bank in nearby Lauderdale Lakes, FL. Video of the bandits was captured by GVI Samsung cameras when the ATM bandits stole the truck, which was later recovered. "I'm sure they'll catch him, I mean -- it's a pretty good picture," said Amerigrow Recycling manager Chuck Tomlinson.

Network Design & Communication Inc. representative Alan J. Schweizer said that the videos of the bandits were captured by some of the "many GVI Samsung SCC-131b and SCC-2311 cameras" that he had installed at Amerigrow's facilities. Network Design & Communications of Boynton Beach, Florida is a leading contractor specializing in voice and data cabling and CCTV installations like the one that captured the video being used by detectives to track the bandits.

The GVI Samsung cameras that Network Design & Communications installed at Amerigrow were provided by Southeast Security Products of Pompano Beach, FL, which represents GVI Samsung throughout the Southeast including Florida, Alabama, South and North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Southern Virginia. "We are delighted to see the high quality products we represent like GVI Samsung cameras deliver the kind of reliable high performance video that helps detectives recover property and track down culprits," added Southeast Security Products Territory Manager Erik Nilsen.
