    Intruder getting into Chesapeake homes through unlocked doors, windows

    Since September, six homes in one area of Chesapeaake have been burglarized and in some cases, the suspect made his way into the women's bedrooms.

    The burglaries occurred between 11:30 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. to homes in the North Battlefield Boulevard area between I-64 and the 168 Bypass.

    Each time, police say, the man got through an unlocked window, door or patio door and the victims would find him in their bedroom or living room area.

    Police also said he never speaks and usually gets out the way he got in. In one case, he got into a fight with the victim before getting out of her apartment.

    "We have only one out of the six that say he took money. Other than that, he hasn't taken anything," police spokeswoman Christina Golden told WVEC.com.

    The victims, both men and women, say the intruder is a black man in his late teens to early 20s.

    Crime Prevention Tips:

    -Secure doors and windows during evening and overnight hours.

    -Keep exterior lights on or motion sensor lights. This is the number one deterrent to crime.

    -Alarm systems when used properly can be effective.

    -If you live alone, lock your bedroom door when going to sleep.

    This guy sounds more like he's trying to terrorize people. Luckily for the women, he didn't pursue anything else!

    Eventually, he's going to break into the wrong house. Then Darwin will have his way.

    Most criminals like this are opportunists. They look for unlocked homes or cars. Leave your garage door open while you are in the house and they will walk off with your chainsaw. I get a report from our local police chief and I would say that 99/100 thefts are from unlocked cars and homes.

    We had a recent incident where a kid broke into an occupied home and the homeowner killed the criminal with a single shot from a .22 rifle. I guess this guy made a wrong career choice.

    The time he does break into a home and gets an armed response I then expect the local bleedia (bleeding heart media) to get down on guns.
