Rubber Band Break In Story Goes Viral

Despite advances in home security technology, thieves still adapt and learn new methods for stealing your valuables. As a result, it is critical to be well-informed of basic burglary methods. One Texas woman experienced something that could have turned out a lot worse for her. Kim Cernigliaro was home alone when she heard someone pounding on her front door. She wasn't expecting anyone and could sense something was wrong. She peered through her door's stained glass and saw a man's silhouette. She then waited 30 minutes for the stranger to leave. When she opened her door, she found a rubber band wrapped around her doorknob.

Kim's local sheriff told her that burglars can break into the house once you unlatch this door with this method. Kim wanted to spread awareness by sharing her experience on Facebook. Her post has since gone viral with over 150,000 shares. Other precautions to take if you're leaving town is to have someone manage your mail. Thieves notice when mail starts to accumulate. You can also install a home security system. If funds are tight, put a security sign in front of your place.

Another option is to make sure your home is well lit. Thieves like to work in the dark where they're harder to detect. In addition, you want to hide valuables in unexpected places such as a child's room. Thieves always go for jewelry boxes first. Moreover, some thieves will just kick the door open. So, it can help to reinforce your doors.
