Personal Safety at Home? For Us & Anyone.
snipped for focus. @Sister Golden Hair
Thanks for the link about recent Houston, TX area event. Scary stuff.
"Woman pretends to be DoorDash delivery driver while suspects try to break into back of Spring house"....1:20 a.m., a woman... knocked on the front door of the home and announced herself as a DoorDash delivery driver....she lingered in the front of the house until about 2 a.m...." sbm
Well, a food delivery driver who knocking at door for a min. would seem unusually patient, even if the resident had ordered a post midnight snack. But driver standing at door any longer??? Hardly seems legit.
"In the meantime "four male... suspects got into the backyard... and tried to break in... not able to get inside..." but damaged home's exterior. sbm
^^^ This is the kicker. Whenever a stranger is at front door, the possibility of an ACCOMPLICE at the BACKDOOR/SIDEDOOR always crosses my mind. And doesn't really matter if it's accomplice singular or plural, or if they try to enter quietly or bash/kick/breacher bar their way in. Either way leaves the resident(s) in the middle of intruders w ill-intent in mind.
I've read about this waaay too often. Take care, fellow Sleuthers.
Oh, look, a KA-BAR product.
KA-BAR 2484SF Ussf Bridge Breacher Tool Blue Plastisol Handle, Gray Tool
A total coincidence from my Amazon search for breacher bar image.
ETA: NOT suggesting or implying BK had a tool like this to enter 1122 King.
