Thieves

Well my day had started off not so good. Like a dumba$$ I forgot to lock my car last night. I go outside this morning and notice the door was not even shut. It was not even latched. I always make sure it is shut. I open and notice that my stuff had been rifled through. Whoever it was stole both pair of my sunglasses. One pair they stole was a $260.00 pair of Maui Jims that my wife got me for an anniversary present in 2011. The other pair was just a cheap pair I wear at work, because I dont/didnt want my Maui Jims tore up at work. I dont care that they took took the cheap pair but I am pi$$ed that they took my Maui Jims. The other thing that gets me is that the damn dogs did not even bark and they bark at every little thing including their shadow.
Police report has been filed with the Sheriff's department.
I need a good wireless outdoor camera that is not expensive and can see at night. Any suggestions and opinions are greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the long post.

Your fault. Unfortunately, there are people who don't have the intent of breaking in your car, but a lot of people who would "car check" for a quick come up... Specially a sat night .

Time for new dogs.

Keep your doors locked and alarm armed, and don't leave anything tempting in open view. Day 1 stuff right there.

The only time I have ever had a vehicle broken into was when my wife drove my old truck and didn't lock the doors when she came home Fortunately, my dog alerted me and I came out the front door firing two .40 rounds at the bad guy....i mean, 2 warning shots . Long story short, the cops showed up pretty quick, a lot of them, and they both were arrested. When he dropped my amp and subs, after he shit his pants and screamed like a little girl, it broke them

The sheriff's deputy said that even though I left the car unlocked it is still theft and it is illegal for an unauthorized person to get into it locked or not. They did not take my gps, but they took both pairs of sunglasses. The one pair I wear for work are just walmart cheapies, that had scratched up lenses and had a crack in the frame below the right lens. Yes I should have made sure the car was locked.

I am going to look into getting a real guard dog, german shepard or doberman. My wife and I are not usually heavy sleepers and we normally hear people outside. We do live out in the country. They would have been warned by gunshots if we had heard them. We have also had problems with people knocking our mail box over (twice in the last month) and a couple years ago some one completely smashed our old mail box. The police hardly patrol our road.

How about a game camera? They sense movement and have good night vision recording. You won't want to stay up all night watching a monitor. A good one is around $150. You can hide them easily.
A decent dummy security camera works well too. I had some neighborhood kids screwing around with my cars in the driveway and bought a dummy camera from Harbor Freight for about $25. It looked very much like the one at my bank. Had a little flashing LED too. Ran about a year on two batteries. Word got around fast and I had no more problems.

You can get a B&W camera that has RCA jacks for $25.00 at harbor freight.
You can get a driveway motion detector for $15.00
You can get security lights with a remote sensor for $30.00 at Lowe's
You can also wear black clothes and stand in the shadows and kill any mother ****er that walks onto your property.

The wife and I were talking about getting a game camera, it would be a less expensive option for now. We are also considering a motion sensor light for the front porch light.
Whoever it was walked onto our property and took off on foot. They left footprints (we have a dirt/gravel driveway) which the sheriff deputy took photos of.
They are also supposed to increase patrols out where we live but they have said that before and never did.

I have loose change in my ashtray also, they did not take any of it. They also did not take my gps.
We think whom ever it was got spooked and scared and took off.
my wife and I will make double sure both vehicles are locked before we go to bed at night.

I have a foscam wireless outdoor cam that covers the outside. Bout 90 bucks on amazon. Also have a wired zmodo DVR security system that I got for 120. Nothing beats my dogs and 12 gauge but the cameras come in handy for evidence and deterrence
