SCREEN HOME WITH SIM­PLE STEPS

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - STREET WATCH - -Nathan Tren­berth

I'm no cli­ma­tol­o­gist, nor do I have any sta­tis­ti­cal ev­i­dence to back me up but in my opin­ion this win­ter mea­sured 'ex­treme' on the mis­er­able scale. Now there's the slight­est hint of warmer weather I like let­ting a lit­tle sun­shine and warm breeze come in through my front fly screen door. Un­for­tu­nately crooks see an un­locked fly screen door or open win­dow as an op­por­tu­nity to sneak in and steal your stuff even when you're at home. Po­lice al­ways see an in­crease in this type of op­por­tunis­tic theft, where crooks get into homes and units through un­locked doors and win­dows, in the warmer months. You can take sim­ple mea­sures, such as en­sur­ing your front screen door is al­ways locked even when you're home, to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce your chance of be­ing a vic­tim of this type of crime.
