Title: Need some info on what to do here. Involves possible Robbery of our shop....
Post by: speedy_2 on July 29, 2010, 06:07:03 PM
There is a house across the street.  Just the other day a bunch of cops were there.  Not sure what happened, but I found out the the people living there(renting i think) are moving out. 

So, just a minute ago one of the guys renting comes in here.

He tells me that one of the guys there vandalized the place before he left this morning.  He also said that he was talking about other crap he was going to do like, "rob the jewelry store across the street."  Apparently the guy breaks into places often and pretty much makes a living off it. He has no car and always walks everywhere.  The guy he's talking about I have seen plenty of times as well.  He left me his name as well.

What can I do?  We have a pretty basic security system.  No cameras.  The hardest part of getting in would be the doors.  Deadbolts in each.  Bars on the windows, but if you remember the last time we got broke into the person ripped them off the outside.  They are strong, but mostly decorative.

Negative on the rock salt.
You pull the trigger and its still lethal force.
A live robber can sue.

Just make sure he's not alive to sue you.

Quick question... is there a time range this is supposed to happen in?
If there is... get a cot and stay there overnight.Hear something... lights go on... 90% of the roaches will run.

Jesus no need to spite me, I was kidding.
I think at this point you need to install some cameras or something.  They have setups you can use to send video directly to your computer.  You can record it digitally.

What makes you so sure he plans on breaking in when nobody is there? What if he plans on coming in during business hours and holding the place up?

This is Florida, the Gunshine State.

Criminals are like Iraqi insurgents, only not as dedicated. Harden the target (Cheap camera system, better bars etc.) and increase surveillance (Sleep there a night or two, do random checks/notify police) and they will move on to a softer target.

This. Move as much inventory into a LARGE, UNMOVABLE SAFE as possible. Do not move inventory by vehicle. Notify the police, especially if a timeframe was given. Police tend to do business checks. Sleep there overnight a few nights, but not consecutive nights. Maybe on Sun, Tues, Weds, Fri, Sun.

Make sure your inventory is up to date, and take records of what comes in/goes out.

Other than those things, and investing in a good security system, just keep your eyes and ears open.

did not read the whole thread, if this is a repeat i am sorry. give all info to the LEOs. cams are cheap and easy to use now a days, that being said to not rely on the LEOs, every chance you and your family get drive by and check on the store. if shit does go down, be smart about it.

Ok.  Told the cops about it last night.  And they actually went to that house this morning.  Not sure what they found out since everyone moved out.   

We do have a safe.  On the down side, our inventory has grown but the safe has not.  But, it's not a full capacity, and we can fit more.  We also have "sample" engagement rings that are extremely convincing to a non-jeweler.  I think he'd go for those first lol.   But, all the diamonds and gold goes in the safe.  Things we leave out are watches and sterling silver stuff.  But, still there's a good amount of value there as well.
