My neighbor just informed me that there have been two guys that have been coming to my house while no one is home and checking it out.
They came for the first time a few months ago, once during Christmas, and once yesterday. Apperntly she didnt find it suspicious until they showed up three times and she actually heard one of them on the phone saying 'we cant get in, they have a dog'. They actually came up to her yesterday and asked if she lived alone and if anyone lives in my house. Im a little upset I am just finding out about this just now but at least I know.
They have shown up in a white truck and a white van.
I have a Pit but I usually have him in his kennel and my driveway has a gate but it is always open since one of the wheels have not been working. So I am thinking of just fixing the gate and keeping it closed at all times, and letting my Pit roam around. I am going to move my Supra to the front Driveway to make it look like someone is home but I'm certain they have seen it in the backyard by now and know it doesn't run. I am also going to contact the Sherrif's once I talk to my neighbor in person and get all of the details. (She just texted me all this) I was also considering just putting up mock securtiy cameras but I dont know if that will actually motivate someone even more to break in since that might indicate I have something of value that I want protected.
I figure that they are pretty far in their plan if this is their third visit in the past few months, do you guys think all these precautions will be enough to deter them? Any other advise? Thanks in advance.
