Breakin at the office
A couple of days ago my office was broken into. They literally moved a concrete garbadge can out of the way and drove a pickup truck through the front of my office. They tore out a glass door, large glass windows and the security gates. They setoff the alarm which alerted the alarm company and the the police. I also had a security camera which was attached to the ceiling and it was broken due to the percussion of the blast through the windows. The burglars managed to get away with 10 or so laptops, a few desktops and a bunch of other computer parts. It was defintely a smash and grab. It happened at 1:00am in the morning exactly. The camera picked up the time, and then it died from the blast. The police came out very timely, but the burglars had already left the scene of the crime. The police said that this type of crime is usually later in the early morning hours. I am amazed at the lengths at which people will go to steal stuff. I thought I had pretty good security. Metal gates, alarms and cameras. I called the landlord and requested that they put in concrete pilons up front to prevent this in the future. They agreed and will be doing this soon, I hope. Has something like this happened to you? What are your thoughts?
