I wish I had known about that before??????
And the “THAT” in question was one of these –
It is as we all know “easy to be wise after the event” and unfortunately these words had a very unfortunate for a colleague of one of the guys in the office.
Pre-Easter this gentleman and his wife were going out for an evening meal and on this particular occasion his good lady offered to drive using her car leaving his on the drive of the family home – an offer to good to miss for most of us of the male persuasion who enjoy the odd pint.
The family home is a neat two bedroom detached bungalow open at the front with his pride and joy – his recently acquired two-year-old Jaguar on full display and with a 2 metre beech hedge surrounding his rear garden. The access to the rear garden was through an unlocked gate adjacent to his garage.
The evening meal went very well, that is until they returned home and were greeted by an empty driveway – no recently acquired two-year-old Jaguar in sight. Upon entering the house, they soon discovered why – the patio doors to the rear garden no longer looked quite the same as they had left them – they had been forced – in a manner not dis-similar to that below –
Fortunately?? for the unfortunate couple the house had not been ransacked – a small amount of jewellery some money and the all-important car keys were all that were taken. The Police reckoned it was only the car they were interested in performed the normal sweep fingerprints (they wore gloves) footprints they found an imprint.
Most annoying for the couple the Police were actually able to pin point who the probable culprits were – a couple of known previous offenders although they paid them a visit and matched the trainer imprint to one of the offenders they unfortunately had to advise the householders that as it was a mass produced “trainer” they did not have sufficient evidence to press charges against – and they actually gave them the culprits names.
The intervention of the Police had an effect as the recently acquired two-year-old Jaguar turned up totally undamaged in a town side street a couple of days later – the police reckoned it had been stored in a lock up ready to be exported.
“I wish I had known about that before!” were the words used when the guy in the office introduced him to our Eurosecure web site on his iPhone particularly when he was shown the picture at the top of this article – The Patlock – the one sure way to deter any would be burglars from breaking in through the Patio doors.
This story unfortunate as it was for the householder does have a happy ending for Eurosecure as we have recently received an order from the gentleman in question for –
One of these – the Patlock
To secure his new patio doors
A couple of these –
To secure his garden gate
A good few metres of this –
Hedgehog spikes to secure all the exposed wall and fencing access points to his garden
And four of these –
To replace his front, rear, patio and garage door locks
