The Key Guy urges you to be prepared.
- First of all, lock your doors.
- Make sure your door and lock are both in sturdy condition. Don't make it too easy for thieves to get in. Most will give up if your door doesn't open within 2 minutes.
- Evaluate easily-accessible windows, which in Hawaii are often a point of easy entry for thieves, even in broad daylight, in secure neighborhoods.
Just last week, we read about a man in Florida who had a camera system installed at his house for $1,000. Burglars broke into his home and stole many valuable items while he was on vacation. Luckily, their faces got caught on camera! The local news station aired the footage to help identify the thieves. The man said the cameras were worth every penny of that $1000.
