There Are A Few Mistakes That Encourage Burglars to Break In

The next time you leave town, here are a few things to think about.  These are five mistakes that can encourage burglars to break in:

  1. Leaving lights on when you’re not home multiple days in a row could make it obvious no one’s home.  It’s fine if it’s just one night or if they’re on a timer.
  2. Leaving a key under the mat, that’s the first place they’ll check.  Pretty much any hiding spot is   better.
  3. Burglars can see your big-ticket items from the street if you leave your blinds open.
  4. Don’t leave the box outside if you buy something expensive.  When you get a new flat screen TV,     don’t let the box sit out by your trash and definitely don’t leave it there when you’re out of town.
  5. Most burglars won’t carry a ladder around with them.  If there’s easy access to one they’re more   likely to target your home.  Especially if you left an upstairs window open.
