    Default Ever have your home burglarized ??

    Friday at 6pm, with 1 neighbor in his front lawn, 2 heroin heads that I saw parked in the street while I walked my 9 yo bully, they saw me, they saw me see them, they watched us drive away, the 2 pulled right in my driveway, guy tried breaking thru back door, but 2 keyed deadbolt stopped him, then he threw a rock thru bedroom window. Apparently, they got caught in another city by time we got home 3 hours later. They did it in broad day light, with my neighbor right there, it didn't stop them.. so has it happened to you and what changes did you make to your home? besides the obvious..

    No, but I just installed drop cams throughout the house. Gosh, what happened to you sounds frightening as hell. I'm glad they did not get in (or did they?) I would imagine that I would feel really violated. Any idea why they picked your house? Did you purchase any big items like a computer or TV recently and set the box outside for trash collection?

    No. But I got a fright a few weeks back when I heard some class break about 2 am.
    I grabbed my baseball bat and ran down the stairs, slipped on a kids toy. Nearly ripped my self a new ahole. Searched all the rooms. Guard dogs still asleep. Diesel gave me stink eye.
    Next morning I went into Layla's bed room and one of those glass type banks was broken on the floor. It must have fallen off her bed when asleep.

    Lucky for us no one has broken in. Our cars have been hit several times but not our house.

    We have an alarm as well, but in all honesty that isn't going to stop a crook if they really want to get it. It will just make them move a bit faster once they are inside. As an additional deterrent I have several of the signs below outside around my house.

    Oh, I am so sorry. I can't imagine how scary a violation like that would be. I've had 3 cars robbed and one stolen, but never my home.


    I also keep bats hidden around my home for the just in case situations But now I live in an area where people just don't trespass, for the fear of being shot. The threat works here in Montana.

    So sorry this all happen to you --- thank goodness you weren't at home as not telling -- sigh!

    I have never had this happen, but we do have a security system that we use ALL the time. When the b/f is away, I even have it on when I am home so if anyone tries to open a door or window - it will sound the alarm and call the local cops

    Yes. Back in 1992 while we were at work. A VCR was stolen as well as credit cards. More recently, our neighbor's house was broken into when they were away. We were at work. Another neighbor witnessed the break-in and called the police. The crook left before the police got there. He got away with a play station and a laptop computer. The police later identified and arrested the suspect. We have not heard any more of it.

    After the incident, we too have an alarm system. The neighborhood has been pretty quiet for the last couple of years and we are glad you are OK. Thank God.

    P.S. A Smith & Wesson beats four aces.

    I have seen literally hundreds of breakins during my police career. What damage these people can do in such a short period of time is absolutely incredible. The worst is the aftermath..the families that no longer feel safe in their own homes..of knowing some animals were rummaging through the same room where they put their babies to sleep. That feeling of being violated lasts a long long time. No matter whats going on in the world..youre home is suoposed to be your safe place..your sanctuary. It takes awhile to recover from that.
