The thugs are walking the neighborhoods staking out homes during the daylight hours...I see them often.....I had one run out of my backyard...left the gate open...he was checking out my side doors, gate door of the back..looking for targets to get in!! Open your shades, close your shades, leave lights one day off the next, also your TV to throw them off before you go to work!!

Wow! All that from five reports of broken windows in a town of 72,000. Thanks for the advice. We all need to walk around with baseball bats. The enemy is everywhere.
