my pop's house was broken into and robbed yesterday

no one was home (thank the goddess) but still, it's disquieting

here's a brochure from the west hartford police on how to survive a robbery. this is of course if you are CONFRONTED by a robber (we were not)

speaking of the west hartford police, they did an OUTSTANDING job. a shout out to the officers and detective who came over. 

my pops called ME first when he came home and saw the door busted. then he called the police. i was minutes away so i arrived almost at the same time they did. my dad and i both entered the house and were in the front hallway. we were strongly reminded we should have stayed OUTSIDE until AFTER the police went in. that was for our safety. we didn't know if the robber/robbers were still inside. that's a point i want to pass on. if you notice anything amiss at your home, call the police and wait OUTSIDE until they arrive.

all in all, no one was hurt. the door was busted and is being replaced. some items were taken, but like i said, no one was hurt.

I'd rather not confront a robber, assuming he's armed. That replacement better be more secure than your old one. Sad to say, however, that normal normal locks and bolts could be easily busted. You could also try adopting a guard dog to keep thieves at bay. Alexander @
