Keys to your Brera left on the veranda, for a decent, undisturbed repose, in future mate? : Or a couple of those percussive trip wires, sear activated, will achieve the right effect, and allow you to repel the attack?
All defensive measures you can invent Nev, should it be a regular re-occuring event. (recurring?: )
On that crime busting prog I watched the other evening, the wired, set-up decoy, was a 147, black, so I told her indoors, see they'll even try to get the keys for your Bella, even though she's a few years old.
I'd like to see someone get in to my house...every door is very big and heavy...alarms and panic buttons all over the place...I have several weapons in my room as well...no dogs but basically, only way anyone would get in would be by making a LOT of noise.
Glad you're ok Nev, cheeky f**king thieves...go work for a living. ¬_¬
Glad you got disturbed so that they didn't get all your stuff. Very scary thing, my uncles house was nearly robbed too but his kids woke and scared them off. Lucky or he would have clattered them with a bar
