You would think that with the number of arrest that the police would have a good handle on the likely suspects for this type of crime?
Yup!

I can't remember who was arrested in connection with the last crime spree. Anyone remember?

There are two of them pictured at this time now being sentenced on the online news we can't mention.

I really hope that the S.O.B. that ever attempts to break in our home does not get caught by the wife or I; just saying.....

I have been tempted to put a sign on each of our doors:


DON'T BOTHER!

NO MONEY OR JEWELS INSIDE!

P.S. GET A JOB!

NOTE: I am giving this information away, please feel free to send to your friends and neighbors. I do not install, I am sharing this to make the bad guys go away.
Good idea, but a simpler way I used is to slide in wooden dowels in the space between the top of the slider and the frame. I bought two dowels, costing 98 cents each, eyeball the size you will need and just slid them in and they stay there, do not interfere with the door operation, and fills in the space to stop any lifting out. Also, did install the SafeSlider on the lanai door. Easy to do with complete instructions online via a video. Cost was $29.95 plus shipping and tax.

A partial solution might be to hire more seniors that live here. There are many that would welcome a job.

The person who was the subject of an online news story, who was arrested in connection with bank robberies, does not appear to be the person involved with the home break-ins. Do you interpret the same way?

Seniors are heavily employed everywhere in The Villages.
