Moreover, business owners keep their stores well-lit 24/7 and spare little expense, when it comes to protecting their houses by implementing top home security systems.
I lived in this town all my life. Growing up, we never had to lock our doors. It’s not that way anymore, that’s for sure,” explained Holly Russell, the owner of a local hair salon targeted by the team of burglars responsible for this new string of property crimes.
