HOME OWNERS BEWARE
It is that time of year when home owners leave the area to take a vacation. It is also that time of year when criminals start to work by breaking into vacant homes, knowing the owners are not in the area. Be certain your home, storage sheds and garage is secure. Generators, small tools and easy to carry items are attractive for criminals. Never use social media to inform thousands of people you will not be at home. Criminals monitor these sites and when you share your holiday pictures from far away places, your property is now a location for a crime of opportunity. Share these pictures with your friends when you get home. Have a friend or neighbour regularly check your home, have lights on a timer, keep the snow cleared from your driveway and have someone pick up your mail and newspaper. Motion lights and outside camera’s can deter criminals. Try to make your home look occupied. Be safe.
