If someone wants something bad enough, they will find a way.

Kind of a scary statement, but it's true!

I will add this, where I live, if anyone tried to steal anything, GOOD LUCK. my stairs to my place are so narrow, it was hard even getting my bed up the stairs, let alone everything else. I'd like to thank the owners of the house I live in for not expanding the halls, it's an old 1908 house, and thief proof (I hope).

Well, that's not very comforting. But reality.

Make sure you are locking your doors at night, that you aren't leaving valuables in your car, and invest in security cameras! Better safe than sorry.

Don't live in fear, get protection.

However, you see fit, protect yourself and your property.
