Default Scared stiff................

What the hell, a couple of small air horns purchased at the marine shop. Wired up so's they go off when the door or window is breached...........That will get every bodys attention and no one is killed, unless they die of a heart attack..........Dag nabbit, still n the wrong.

A couple of motion-detector lights will be the cheapest step. Maybe some blood stains on the back patio would be useful?

Want a real way to recover if you do get ripped off? Get renter's insurance from the place you get car insurance; it is really, really cheap and covers YOUR STUFF, not the house. When I lived in Memphis, I think it actually saved me money on my car insurance bill due to a "multi-line discount" (state farm). Ask your agent; you will have to list and document valuables in the event of a claim, so snap some pics and keep receipts and such.



edit* I went to state farm's website and got an estimate of $10-$31 per month for $20,000-$30,000 of coverage in my area. See what it is for you (just fill in "john doe" with your neighbor's address if you want). http://www.statefarm.com/insurance/quote/renters/renters.asp
It would still suck to be robbed, but you could replace some of your stuff.

That "comprehensive" part of car insurance and renter's insurance are seriously cheap and are worth it for people on a tight budget. That "comprehensive" part on the car is for non-wreck damage like falling limbs, stolen stereo's (almost totaled a prizm I had due to inept stereo theft), and other things that regular people may not be able to afford to fix or replace without insurance help. A good agent will point out if there is a multi-vehicle discount available or a multi-line discount for more than one type of insurance (car + life or car + renter's, etc.).

My friends thought me foolish to carry full coverage car insurance with the comparatively cheap "comprehensive" part and a $50 deductible on the "comp." part until it covered about $4,000 in damage to my prizm and an expensive speaker box and amp stolen at the wrecker yard from my explorer, totally worth the $5 or so per month.

Renter's insurance is a good idea in general. You might talk to your neighbors- they don't want anyone breaking into their houses, either, so they have an interest in watching out for suspicious activity in the area. Sometimes the police will drive past occasionally if you let them know what is going on, too. If you're looking to catch the person, maybe on your day off you could leave the house around the time you normally leave for work. Park nearby, slip quietly back into the house, and see what happens.

i was going to also suggest renter insurance but 'Gello beat me to it!

it covers your personal property in the rent house or apartment, not the landlords property. that's his or her's problem if your place is broke into IMO.

a dog is a very good idea if the landlord allows it. any dog, but a loud barking dog. most robbers will bypass a place with a dog. they don't know it's size or nature and most dogs cause them problems.

wish you luck and hope it works out for you.
