Your Burglary Story.

Have you been the victim of a burglar? Would you like to share your burglary story and help others?

Sometimes it can be a little uncomfortable to think of unpleasant experiences such as being burglarized.

But by the telling of your tale you may just help someone else avoid the same fate.

By sharing our experiences with each other we can learn more ways to
beat the burglar. We can move that little bit nearer to being free from
the worry of crime.

You may want to tell us:

  • Were you at home or were you out when the housebreaker broke in?
  • What time of day (or night) did the burglary happen?
  • Is your home a house, apartment or other?
  • Were external doors and windows locked?
  • Did you have an alarm system fitted?
  • Had you taken any steps to protect your home against being burglarized?
  • Did a neighbor or passerby hear or see anything?
  • Was the burglar, or burglars, caught?
  • What steps have you taken since the burglary to improve your home security?

The above are only suggestions, it’s your own story – share just what you want to share in your own words.

Please do not include any information which could identify your address.
You can post anonymously if you don’t want to use your real name, (or
use a pen name.) When asked for your location just enter your City,
State, or Country, or leave blank if you prefer.
