If you have a hard wired outdoor floodlight ,you can replace it with a Ring floodlight. It has motion sensors and will notify you on your smartphone when it is activated. Shoots a 180 degree beam . Great product!

What I did as well and well worth the cost and effort to put up, it sounds like they are escalating, take it very seriously, for some reasons they have targeted you maybe for no other reason then you looked at one of them funny sometime or other or for no other reason then they just don’t like how you look, whatever the reason make your preparations now and keep alert, if you don’t have a gun get one and keep it loaded and handy hopefully you won’t need it but nowadays you never know

Don’t depend on the police most are great people but in most such cases can do little till your either in the hospital or dead and then it’s to late for you

If you don’t know how take a look on YouTube and find out how to harden you house against break ins, some things such as replacing the short screws in lock plates and hinges with longer ones are simple and there are others just as simple that if nothing else can give you time to be ready if they decide to come after you, a lot of people don’t like to think about that but take it seriously the warning signs are already there, so take precautions, hopefully it all comes to nothing and blows over but if it don’t you will be ready when it all goes south

Police are basically to write speeding tickets and do paperwork after the fact when a crime is committed.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

That's some serious damage. I wouldn't say on here what I'd do. But some good advice above

Several ask if I had words with the perps... No, I can't ever recall ever seeing them alone having words with them.

I did go to PD and get a copy of the report... and it happened earlier than I thought. I called it in at about 4:00 pm, and it had happened probably, 5 mins or so before that. I called 911 and they told me I needed to call the non emergency number.

I have been canvassing the neighborhood to see if anyone has security cameras. I found 2. So, when the appropriate people get home they will have them check their cameras. I almost felt like I was back in uniform again, only a WHOLE lot older.

Well, my canvassing paid off and I have received one video of the punks running away from my house when I was yelling at them. Although, none of their faces show clearly, there is enough evidence visible in conjunction with my witnessing them running away to be substantial. I also was able to see them changing direction of travel to be able to scope out the area in the future to be able to possibly spot them.

I was able to find a couple more homes with video cameras, and home they can come up with additional videos. The one I am hoping for is the house 2 doors before they got to my house. They should possibly be together and show features, as it is closer to the street. I was gong to post the video on here, but unable to post an .mp4.

Have found out I have to replace the entire door, because the lower panels can't be replaced like the glass panels. Cost... way to much... about $500.00.

My investigation is still on going.

Maybe a false panel with a 330 behind fastened down good or a heavy drag.


Clean traps,tight lines,straight shooting

Could be they're just checking to see if your home before they break in. Next time play 'possum to see what they're up to.

I've cut a piece of 1/4" plywood and put behind a kicked out panel like that and done a decent fix on it.

Lots of luck sorting this all out.

one thing ABOUT IT is those Al panel on the bottom of the doors make some good funnels for sub-mergent traps.

so the perps were small enough to climb under the knocked out panel so if they get caught make sure you get to their court dates and demand restitution for your damages.

One thing on trail cams you want the ones that automatically download the pictures to a phone or computer so you get a picture of the people before they steal the camera, a friend had his destroyed but luckily it uploaded the pictures before the baseball bat hit it.

Well... Digging out my LEO experience and a little commons sense, I was able to locate the perps. After viewing the video a number of times, I decided the perps more than likely lived within several blocks of me. So the next thing was, I had already calculated their ages between 12 and 15. I needed to find out where they went to school. My best estimate happened to be the Jr. high school that I attended, many, many, many years ago. I went to the school with it in mind that the school couldn't give me their name and addresses, but they could verify if they recognized them.

I was able to get in and talk to the principal and he was very accommodating. I told him of the incident and that the one person, I felt could be easily identified. I told him that I figured their ages should be within the range of those at his school. I let him view the video... I watched his face and could tell he recognized the one person. He called his secretary in and they both knew immediately the one perp. She said she couldn't identify the other 2, but pretty sure she knew who they were.

She pulled their records and lived about a block away from me... the one we all could recognize lived I think she said 2 houses away and they were as I had figured... brothers. The youngest was 12 and the oldest was 15 and was still in their school because he had failed at least one year.

I thanked them and I gave them my business card with my trapping info on it. The principal told me as a young man he use to trap and the greatest catch of his life was when he caught a read fox. He was from Newcomerstown, Ohio, for you other Ohio boys.

So, after leaving the school I went back to Police Department and filed an additional report. I gave them several still photos from Google Earth showing the complete layout, photos of the perps line of travel and ask the officer get in touch with me.

After reviewing the video and replaying everything in my mind... I am sure it was more than a prank or an act of vandalism. If it was vandalism they would have kick the door and got out of there. They didn't... they hid in the bushes. This make me believe it either and attempted B & E, or Home Invasion, both being a felony, not a misdemeanor. I have told the PD that if the parents will pay complete restitution for the door to be replaced including installation cost... I will not press charges. If they will not willingly pay, then I will press charges. Plain and simple.

I felt pretty good about myself being able to unravel it. The PD said originally there was no way of telling who the perps were. Those videos don't lie. Not bad for a washed up old has been law enforcement officer.

Besides the new door get them to mow your lawn and trim the hedge for a year. That will give you time to get to know them and you just might turn them around! They might just be young enough to do that!

In the 60's I had a high school buddy was with the LAPD in the Pico division. He would take delinquent kids to the High Sierras on back packing trips. Hands down they didn't know that side to life.Kids need alternatives!
