I came home from work tonight to find the alley-side door of my garage open. It was closed when I left. The zip tie that I had placed on the emergency release latch (to prevent outside break-ins) was broken. I assume that my dogs started barking, thinking that I was home, and scared the person …

Someone in the the Backyard

I awoke around 1:15 and looked out my window to see a man creeping slowly through my backyard to my garage. He tried the door handle to see if it was unlocked. By the time I ran downstairs to turn on the back porch light, he was gone.

A few weeks ago I posted about a possible break in when I found that my garage door had been disengaged by pulling the cord and lifting the door by hand. Since then I have purchased a wireless motion detector/alarm (Harbor Freight has them for around $15) and set it up in my garage to …

Attempted garage break in

Side garage door was pried open, but not completely. Door was still locked and it appears they were unable to gain access. Happened sometime between 6am 10/13 and 11:30am 10/14. Backyard is fenced in. Looks like they hopped neighbors fence and landed in our tomato garden.
