Anyone who wants to get into your home bad enough can easily do it. Windows break and they're in. I'm interested in one of the new alarm systems you install yourself, and use through the internet. Anyone have any feedback on that? Motion detectors and lots of light really work to deter most thieves. One thing I do when I'm away is set about 5 timers so they go off and on during the day and evening, and a couple of times during the night in the bathroom. One controls a radio so the noise starts and stops.
But still, occasionally those low life types just walk around a neighborhood ringing doorbells and pretending to be salesmen if someone answers. If no one is home, they just break in.
Nonetheless, sorry that they got some of your tools. They ought to institute capital punishment for tool thieves!
BTW, didn't someone come up with some material with numbered particles you put in or on your tools so they can easily be traced? Can't remember the company.
