Hmmmm....Who could be responsible for all these robberies???

Wait. How big was the safe they took ? They either need a bigger one or should have bolted it down. Little safes are just for stupid stuff. If you have valuables like that get a huge safe or make it so it can't be taken without a struggle.

Buy an old car, let it sit in the driveway, the thieves will think someone's home. Keep a radio or tv on, some kind of noise. That's what we have resorted to.
