Now on to our feature. Here are some secrets that your local burglar doesn't want you to know about.
- Don't leave ladders in the open in your yard especially if you have a two-story home. Most homeowners don't get their upper windows wired for security and robbers can get in there with the help of that ladder you left laying around.
- Break down and conceal or recycle large empty boxes especially after the holidays. Thieves just love to drive around a neighborhood looking at the trash and seeing what you have in your home that is valuable and worth their time.
- Keep bushes and trees around your home trimmed. Make sure there is a clear and open path to your doors and windows and they are visible from the street. No need to provide thieves with hiding places.
- Make sure your outer doors are steel wrapped and have deadbolts to lock them up. Any lesser models may allow thieves to be able to kick in the door panels and gain entry. Next week we will explore some more secrets.
