As one of the victims on Friday, I have a few suggestions: 1. Put locks on all of your gates - a deterrent that would have helped. 2. Lock all windows even on the second floor - they entered by climbing on the roof. 3. Buy a safe and bolt it to the ground. Put all of your valuables in it. 4. Catalog (write-down) all valuables. 5. Take iPads/Laptops with you if not placed in a safe - be sure to put a password lock on them. 6. Leave a radio on when you leave. Sadly, these burglars will ransack your house. They leave nothing unturned - so hiding items will not work. They are looking for iPads, iPods, Jewelry and other precious small valuables. We as a community need to band together and report any suspicious activity.
