Neighbors Beware

My brother who lives a few blocks away from us (just north of the main park) was out of town for the weekend and his home was robbed. Not just a TV or a few grab and run items; it was ransacked from TOP to BOTTOM! They got in through the sliding glass door and had to have been there for a couple hours just hauling away possessions, important paperwork, everything. They even took my sister-in-law's wedding rings. Just sad.
So please, beware!
*Neighborhood Watch has been notified. Still, tell your neighbors and spread the word to be vigilant. Also, they did not have a peice of wood at the base of the sliding glass door. They probably will now...

Wow! That is so sad!
Did they have a wooden stick in the sliding door? Just curious.
I have one, but wonder if it would really help.
I'm sorry for your brother and his wife:(
