Today I got a call from the detective handling the recent break-in of our rehab property... they made an arrest!
It seems that the copper thieves had been found to rob over 75 (that are known) properties in the Northwest Grand Rapids Area!
The bad news... there will be a slim chance of receiving any monetary compaensation, and I will never get back my charger/radio from these bad guys.
If the police are asking me if I have any other vacant homes in the area, that leads me to believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg that's happening.
Tip of the day: If you have a vacant house that has not been broken into, odds are that you are next... diminish all of the 'flags' that you can: cover easy viewing windows, turn on interior lights on at night, have exterior lighting, remove the newspapers piled up, etc.
