Burglars in thru the rear door.
This was some twenty five years ago. They broke into my parents house thru the rear door by kicking in the bottom panel, the door had three large panels. The lock held good it was an old type that bolted on the back of the door, you could lock it or latch it. My dad was particular about locking up when going out, before putting on his coat he’d say “lets get her locked up” and walk around the house checking the windows and that rear door.
No one heard them busting up the door but neighbors did say that there was a truck parked up close to our house revving like the blazes for a spell, that’s how they covered the noise and maybe hauled the stuff away in the truck.
The stuff was our t.v. vacuum cleaner, other electrical stuff, my dads bowling ball, he went ape over that! Mostly left moms jewelry alone, but the only pieces of value she had were the rings that dad gave her and she always wore those.
Dad would not spend out on a new door, no way. He fixed up the old door but at the same time putting in extra lengths of wood at the back of the panels claiming that they won’t be able to kick their way in again. It made the door a little heavy but it worked alright.
