    BAD: $75,000 Worth of Guns Stolen During Big Gun Armory Burglary

    Gun shop has been open less than a year. I haven't even gotten there, yet.

    $75,000 Worth of Guns Stolen During Big Gun Armory Burglary - Dacula, GA Patch

    "Then, at 1:47 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 29, Duncan got a call from his alarm company -- the burglar alarm had been activated. Gwinnett County Police were also notified and arrived four minutes after getting the call, but it was too late."
    Alarm company may be on the hook for part of this claim:

    "... installation error in the video surveillance system. The system, Duncan explained, was supposed to be set so that when the cameras detected motion, recording would begin within a few seconds. Instead, the technician that installed the system reportedly set the motion activation delay for 45 minutes."

    Inside job? Time to let the Ins. Co. deal with the alarm Co.

    That is my first thought also.

    Oh, I forgot the part where the fire marshal made him replace his double cylinder deadbolt with a single cylinder lock.

    "...Duncan explained that he initially had a keyed lock on the interior and exterior of the door, but was instructed by the fire marshal to switch the interior keyed lock to a twist lock for safety purposes. As a result, the burglar or burglars were able to access the interior of the store without damaging anything other than the glass.

    45 minute delay? Gimmie a break. What good does that do? The tech needs a closer look or a brain.

    Sure smells like it.

    Ah.. heck.... after BTK (serial killer) was killing people..... everyone wanted new house alarms, etc. Guess who was working at the time installing alarms in people's homes ? Yep, you got it. When I told a guy I know who it was and heard that news.... he was extremely shaken up ...... at "who" it was, etc... and then he told me that he worked with him at the time installing alarms. The wheels were spinning in his head.

    Fire Marshall needs to go to Krogers and buy a clue. Assuming the dead lot would be locked only when the store was closed, his mandate was stupid and not in the interest of the public at large.

    My $$$ is on the alarm tech to be the perp.
