One way to prevent home burglaries in the daytime
A recent rash of home burglaries in several major cities has one thing in common. The burglars take advantage of the fact that the home owners have foolishly used their home address when buying a vehicle. (Readers of How to be Invisible would never make such a mistake!) Here's the modus operandi:
1. Watch for late-model upscale cars entering the parking lot of a mall or supermarket.
2, As soon as the owner enters the building, break into the car, snatch the registration, and leave at once. If a personal name and a local street address are listed, assume no one is now home there!
3. Race to the home, ring the bell, and when no one answers, burglarize the home in broad daylight. (BONUS--If the owner had a garage-door opener clipped to the visor, use that to enter the home.)
SOLUTION One way to prevent home burglaries in the daytime is to re-title your vehicle in the name of an anonymous New Mexico limited liability company (NM LLC). For details, contact me: Jack (at) jjluna.com.
