During one of the incidents, Heimbruch’s Protection 1 security system, which has silence sensors and video surveillance cameras, alerted the homeowner that someone was lurking outside his home. The alert allowed Heimbruch to see who the intruder was and call police.
Kat Anderson, a representative with South Plains Auto Task Force, explained that the number of auto burglaries and theft increase during the summer season. Most thieves are searching for laptops, cell phones and loose change.
Anderson urged homeowners to install security systems and form a neighborhood watch program to help decrease some of the crime.
