A good neighborhood watch program is important and or security alarm.
These break ins happen during the middle of the day when alot of residents work in Charlotte.

From the video in that link & news these crooks will ring doorbells then bust open the door.

Happy to have a neighbor across the street that works night shift. He's always home when I'm gone.

I guess I'll just never understand how someone feels justified in breaking into someones home/car, and stealing belongings that do not belong to them. I realize that we all have different thresholds on how far we will stretch morally, but don't people have that little voice in their head that reminds them that stealing other people's belongings is just wrong??

Living here for a while, I've noticed that there seems to be an active, well-connected and very intelligent crime network around. They seem to know exactly what to hit and when, and seem to be able to get in and out undetected with ease.

I guess because even when caught they get away with it.

It makes you wonder... do these perps scout out the places they target or do they just pick a place at random and see what's available to take once they're in?

What the news said in the Huntersville case they do scout out the neighborhood by driving around picking homes with no cars in driveway then someone would go up and ring the doorbell to verify if anyone was home.

This is why I think creating a good neighborhood watch. Someone on your street may be off during the week or retired and they can notice vehicles that are driving slow up the street.
When I lived in Huntersville I would leave his TV on during day and interior lights with blinds close.
I really left TV on animal planet so the dog wouldnt feel so lonely though.
I also lived in a cul de sac so it was more ovious someone making loops.
