Dumb Ankle Monitor Wearing Home Invader Busted

Services for Real Estate Pros with IDTheftSecurity.com Inc
If you ever decide to get all hopped up on drugs and seek some extra cash to feed your fix, I’d suggest not wearing your governmental department of corrections court ordered previously installed GPS ankle-monitoring bracelet to your next home invasion. Chances are you’ll get caught. But as tongue and cheek funny this may be, this home invader “leveled a shotgun at a young couple and their infant child.” It’s scary to know that hardened criminals are only tethered by a “signal” and don’t care about getting caught. Companies that provide ankle bracelets set up their products to send a signal to a GPS satellite every minute to track its location. That information is logged into a data base. If the “tracker” which could be a parole officer or law enforcement has the system set to notify them if the criminal is outside of their required boundaries, police are dispatched. But in many situations criminals with GPS ankle bracelets can roam free. It’s only when they cut the bracelet off that a signal is sent to the devices last location. Here are 5 tips to help keep you safe and prevent a home invasion: 1. Never talk to strangers via an open or screen door. Always talk to them through a locked door. 2. NEVER let children open the doors. Always require and adult to do it. 3. Install a home burglar alarm and keep it on 24/7/365. With a home alarm system on, when someone knocks on the door, a conscious decision has to be made to turn off the alarm. Most people will keep it on. 4. Not all home invaders knock, some break in without warning. Just another reason to have that alarm on. 5. Install a 24-hour camera surveillance system. Cameras are a great deterrent. Have them pointed to every door and access point. Robert Siciliano personal and home security specialist toHome Security Source discussing ADT Pulse on Fox News. Disclosures

Home burglaries and home invasions are becoming more of a problem today.  Budget cutbacks in cities all over the country are resulting in many criminals being released early.  Having an alarm system should be a priority for most homes.  Thanks for the reminder.

I love those "dumb criminals" stories, although this gave the people a scare.
