Home Invasion on 6th Street

There is a disturbing report of an armed home invasion in Center City.

Police here are investigating a home invasion-style burglary on North 6th Street Friday night in which two people were robbed at gunpoint of a total of $1,000.

The crime was reported to authorities at about 10:20 p.m.

Three people inside the 100-block home at the time told investigators they headed toward a bedroom to investigate a noise, Millville Police Det. Lt. Les Watson said Monday.
This story is a cautionary tale, warning everyone to be vigilant, not only on the streets but especially in the supposed safety of your home.

Doors should always be locked behind you. Windows that are accessible from the ground should never be open wide enough to allow a person to enter undetected.

Invest in motion detection outdoor lights, and leave outdoor lights on ti illuminate your yard.

Trim hedges back, and don't have any bushes close to windows to act as a shield. And, to, even though you are safe in your own house, why is there any need to keep $500 on your person? Have you ever heard of a bank account? A debit card keeps the cash readily available for almost all purchases, although our local drug dealers still don't have the capability for electronic transactions...
