stealing and break ins
what can you do

United States

#1 Jan 31, 2013
What do you do when someone breaks in your house and steals things? Just file a report? Is that all you can do? And if you have no clue who done it, I guess you just file a report and hope somehow you find your things in a pawn shop? It is such a violation to the victim. Do people have to start putting up video cameras at their homes. Is that a good idea? Any suggestions would be appreciated of how to protect your home from thiefs or catch them in the act and have them prosecuted?

Have dogs that lay and sleep apparently. Guess I need a few mean ones. I guess you have to have proof to get a search warrant for someone you think did it, right?

If someone steals a gun and you have the serial number and good proof of who has it it can be returned. Other than that you need insurance to replace items. Video cameras are your best bet.

lol I know what you saying!
Video is about the best thing to have for proof even if you seen it happen yourself that is your word against theirs.
You can get some good home security camera equipment that will hook in your computer and check from a cell phone you would allso want a alarm on windows and doors be sure to get the loudest one on the market so neighbours can hear it .

I don't have an alarm system but I do have several ADT signs in my yard that once belonged to my in-laws. You'd be surprised how stupid some criminals are. If they think you have an alarm, it would deter them from coming on your property. If you can't afford an alarm system or don't want another dog, I would get a few security signs.
take it

I guess you got to take it and just say goodbye to your stuff and get over it.

Get rid of most of the illegal drugs in the county and you will stop the stealing.
