July Sheriff's Report for Lake Sarasota
Thieves are getting bolder, and are now smashing in doors. I demonstrated a device, a bar, that fits under a door knob and directs the force of entry into the floor, preventing the door from opening. It's called a "security bar", and is available from most hardware stores. I got mine from the DG store at MacIntosh and Bee Ridge. They're between $20 and $25. Also, our residents should lock their homes and cars, keep garage doors down, and set their security alarm systems at night or when away from home.
