The New York Post reported that a 24-year old woman in Bay Terrace was burgled; losing precious valuables. The items stolen from her home included a $4,200 Louis Vuitton wallet and purse, three Swarovski bracelets, a $250 Tory Burch purse, $1,240 in cash and a credit card.
- In just moments she lost over $6,000 worth of possessions.
The theft inspired the victim to install a wireless doorbell camera in front of her home. The investment paid off quickly as only five days later a suspect identified by cops as Julian Zorilla, 49, visited the woman’s home intending to break in, police said.
Zorilla, who was with an accomplice, rang the bell, activating the camera, which texted a snapshot of his face to the woman.
- Prevention is statistically proven to work.
A study done in December 2012 at the University of North Carolina in the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology showed that when a burglar spots a security camera, they are 60% less likely to attempt to break into that home.
In the same vein, we believe a good security system must be both clearly visible to unwanted guests who walk up to your door and also reliable if they try to test the capability of your home’s defenses.
