There are approximately 901 thefts per 100,000 people annually. In order not to be a part of this statistic, many people try to protect their homes — some choose alarms, while others rely on strong doors with complex locks. But even the most observant people don’t always notice that robbers have already started to watch their home and are waiting for the just the right moment to make a move. Pay attention to details that can be connected with theft even if they seem insignificant at first sight. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
Enimpost.com prepared a list of signals that should help keep you alert. We hope that you’ll never have to encounter a theft but even so, it’s better to be on guard.
1. Missing garbage
Robbers are attracted to a home not only with money and jewelry. Very often, people throw unnecessary papers into the garbage that contain important information like your name, date of birth, working place, passport number and other data. This data is exactly what robbers need to use for their own purposes. That’s why you should make a rule to always tear up any papers with personal information into small pieces before throwing them away. And if you notice that somebody was delving into your garbage — stay aware of it because it isn’t always a homeless person searching for food. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
2. The disappearance of your dog
Dogs guarding a house or a flat are a burden for robbers. That’s why they may try to get rid of the “guardian” by drawing it outside when the owners are not at home. After 2 days, the robbers will come back no longer afraid of being bitten by the dog. Of course, a missing dog doesn’t always signify an upcoming robbery but one shouldn’t exclude this option either.
3. An empty gas tank
In order to prevent the owners of a home from coming home earlier, robbers may drain their cars’ gasoline and, therefore, apprehend them on their way home. In the worst case, you won’t even be able to get to the petrol station, which means that you’ll get back home even later. That’s why if you feel sure that yesterday you had a full gas tank and today it’s almost empty, ask someone to look after your home until you come back. Cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff
