Garage break-in foiled 8-25-2013

Posted in: Bellemont Crossing

We stopped a team of thieves in the act of breaking into our house via the garage. Details below:


1. Anyone can break into an electric garage in 6 seconds or less. If you have single walled doors and windows at the top it is even easier.

2. They are traveling through neighborhoods in dark cars, sending two to the house. 

3. There were cars and a boat in our driveway, so they knew people were home.

4. The only way to foil this break in is to remove the pull cord attached to your release lever at the top of the garage opener mechanism ( track in the middle) and zip tie the release lever to the box that holds the lever. The thieves can literally put a small block of wood between the top of your garage door and the frame, looking right at your release cord which is 4-5" away, feed in a straight piece of wire and pull on the release. It takes 5-6 seconds, leaves no trace, and they are in your garage!
