Home Burglary Spikes This Time Of Year

There was an article in the paper in Florida recently that talked about how at this time of year there’s a spike in break-ins of as much as 14 percent. Police are going door to door handing out flyers warning residents to be careful. You can read the whole story HERE.

“The most common way such burglaries are committed is with the so-called “knock and wait” method, Mandell said. That’s when someone dressed as a florist, magazine subscription seller or handyman rings the bell between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

If no one answers, the burglar will lift out rear sliding glass doors or go through an open bathroom window to enter a home. If a resident does answer, the burglar will pretend to have the wrong address and try the next unoccupied house.”

Don’t fall victim to a crime like home burglary. The easiest way to prevent it is to start locking all your doors and windows even when you are home.
