I guess I'm not gonna be a victim,unless I call you for a job the answer is NO,your not getting past my front door because I'm in it,and your not entering thru any windows without setting off an alarm.
They were robbed about 10 years ago when they weren't home and installed some sort of high tech alarm system, didnt think it could ever happen again...well just goes to show what poor SA can do to youI guess I'm not gonna be a victim,unless I call you for a job the answer is NO,your not getting past my front door because I'm in it,and your not entering thru any windows without setting off an alarm.
What they actually had, there, was a storage cabinet with a door. Pretty poor planning for the value of stuff they wanted to be kept safely.They have a smaller safe mounted inside the closet on a shelf and the perp was able to cut off the bolts and take it which had $200K worth of valuables. All this took place in roughly a 10-15 minute time span.
Yup.What to learn from this: 1-staying inside your house is one of the best and safest things to do, don't fall into the trap. 2- make sure you have a quality safe that is bolted down correctly.
Ok, that was unnecessary. Would you have mentioned if he were German, Australian, or Fijian?Just took place about an hour ago. My mother is home alone with the dog (GSD that has years of consistent bite training) and there is a knock at the door, some black guy.
Totally agree. And I think if some German had shown up at my door, that would be worth mentioning. Especially since I don't speak German....having filled out hundreds of police reports...yes, that is germane to the story and only holds offense for those predisposed to looking for same...part of life these days to mention race...in a multi-racial society...
Because posting on an anonymous forum is akin to filing a legal document.....lets try to make sense with our arguments....having filled out hundreds of police reports...yes, that is germane to the story and only holds offense for those predisposed to looking for same...part of life these days to mention race...in a multi-racial society...
That's just too darn funny Hop, unfortunately I'm in the same boat recently.The story doesn't exactly sound right. 200K in a minimally secure safe near the door? The
BGs just stumbled on it?
Possibilities-- 1) Insurance scam 2) kids couldn't wait for their turn 3) someone's nose is growing.
Who in their right mind keeps 200K worth of anything in a small safe in their home? I mean, at least
be sensible and bury it in the backyard in PVC and concrete.
Thank G-d I'm too poor to have such problems. I'm gonna hang a sign on the door, "THIEVES WELCOME."
"KNOCK YOURSELVES OUT BOYS."
Its not a bad sum of valuables if they can all fit in proper safes. But then, the "all eggs in one basket" concept needs to be paid its due respect as well. There are things like fire, folks backing up into the building to bust-out the safe, etc.Who keeps $200K worth of anything in their home? Especially in a small box? Spend a couple G's on a real safe, or get a safe deposit box. That's crazy.
That someone certainly had no need to know. A good warning to the wise.A buddy of mine in Virginia was telling me about a man up there whose safe was stolen. They backed a truck right up to the side of his house, used a sawsall to cut through the exterior (vinyl sided house), studs, and sheetrock right around his safe and pulled it right out of the house and into the back of the truck and took off. That's someone who knew exactly what and where it was.
