The things which have been lately, makes it look more and more like I need to get a security system installed! I live in an ordinary housing track in Mandarin, America, where there is hardly anything going on. So just imagine my surprise when people in my neighborhood began getting their houses broken into. It wasn’t just their houses either, as cars as well as garages were also targets for these burglars.
I’ve made the first step of calling a few security system providers to get some quotes, but I haven’t finalized the purchase yet. I suppose that’s because our neighborhood has been a bit closed off and we are clannish about our little plot of land. I’m still hoping that the criminals will be apprehended before I have a video surveillance system put in, or automated lights around the house. We all watch one another’s back around here, and I guess it makes the wrong statement in getting a security system installed. I like that all of us handle things ourselves, but these thieves are not giving us that opportunity. If it keeps up at this rate I’ll have no option but to get a security system installed.
It’s odd though that of the twenty plus burglaries that have occurred so far, not once have they been seen by anyone. This makes me suspect that someone on the inside is involved. What trying times we live in, when we can’t even trust our own neighbors. Maybe I will get that security system installed after all.
