4 break ins and one attempted in 5 days
We moved to a nice quiet neighborhood one year ago and in that time not one thing has happened. We have a neighborhood watch here and this past weekend got email about 4 break ins over the weekend. One person walked down to his kitchen in the middle of the night to find a man in his house. I dont know if the owner came down for something or he heard the thief. He bolted back out the door when seen. I dont know much about the other break ins other than one was an empty house and a car also. But I know 2 occupied homes got hit. Then last night a woman went into her kitchen at around 11:30 and then heard something at the window, when she got a closer look and saw that a man was at the window. He ran when she screamed for her husband. Now the wife and I discussed the possibility that someone enters our home at night. I told her just to do 2 things, get to our daughters room lock the door and call 911. Dont worry about me as Im gonna stay perched on the top of the stairs on guard (while armed) I dont feel the need to go looking for an intruder as you really never know what your going to run into. I cant run the risk of trying to clear my house and the perp getting the drop on me for whatever reason. We have dogs and they go ape !@#& when just just juggle a door knob or mess with a window. I hope this will be all the alarm I need. But Im thinking of installing some motion lights front and back. Any advice would be welcome.
