This Sunday, Howard County Police Department sent Mr. Eric Kruhm to gave us a seminar at Howard County Chinese School at Howard Community College about recent nice burglars targeted at Asian American families. Now burglars is using high-tech too. They were using google earth to identify Asian American families and compile a list for later break-in.
Here are some tips from the seminar:
- Put your valuable in a bank safe, instead at home. Now burglars steal the whole safe at home.
- Call 911 when you feel something suspicious. It is better for a false alarm than the home is broken-in.
- If you have a long vacation, ask your neighbors help and they can park their car on your driveway. Also ask police to have an area check.
- You can ask for online interpreter when call 911.
- Hide your valuables. Burglars usually have no time to search around, they just grap anything they see.
