My neighbor had their house broken into. This is the same neighbor that shot a snowmobiler 6 years ago who later died 2 years later (http://www.doomworld.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=42386).
I find it very difficult to believe that anyone would break into their house for a few reasons. First of all, 2 of the 4 sides of the property are covered by river. The third side is the main road. The last side is their only neighbor with a much nicer and easier house to break into and probably easier too. They have 8 garages, each filled with fancy cars (the previous owner operated a business out of the home).
The house has plenty of motion detector lights installed by the previous owner, but there is one thing the house has a lot of and that's guns and owners willing to use them.
Not to mention, one of them is a judge.
Its just so odd. So I was thinking maybe its a deer that broke in and left. The cops won't tell me anything, just that they were broken into. My neighbors won't won't answer calls. Now their front yard is lit up like daytime on the sun. Its almost comical how many lights they have on now.
My girlfriend suspects their landscapers.
Its a very unpopulated area that is getting more populated in the past 10 years. The town next to ours has the population and the crime.
Are you doing anything differently now that you have pieced together this information? If so, what are you doing immediately that is making you feel more secure?
Keep in mind that potential criminals are aware of public holidays (Labor Day) and know when it is acceptable to have a few drinks, maybe consume a drug of choice, and decide to commit a serious crime like robbery, theft, violence, etc.
