PREVENTING RESIDENTIAL BREAK AND ENTERS....
Home Invasion Warning...Don't let your guard down. Intruders are now knocking on your door with bogus stories that will cause you to open your door. Don't fall for any story. Then they enter and rob your home and family. Don't ever open the door to anyone you don't know. Always answer the door with the intercom. Not answering the door is also bad as that sends a message that it is okay to break in as no one is home. Intruders are often ringing the bell to find vacant homes and then proceed to break in.
If in doubt call the Police 911 immediately
