Home Security Advice | The Security Sensei's insight:

Drugs - both illegal and prescription - are a driving force behind many of today's burglaries and home invasions. Yet, many homeowners continue to leave their safety and security to chance.

 

In a recent Fox43 news report, the prime suspect of a home burglary in East Lampeter, Pennsylvania, admitted to police that his heroin addiction was the reason he broke into his neighbor's home and stole their property. The perpetrator pawned the items for cash so that he could purchase more heroin.But illicit drugs aren't the only mind-altering substances fueling today's burglaries and home invasions. Prescription drugs are another hot commodity among today's home intruders. In a recent home invasion in Huntsville, Alabama, which left one of the suspects dead, prescription drugs were cited as the motivation behind the crime.

 

In an article by The News-Herald, Police Chief James Wilkewitz of Allen Park, Michigan expressed a concern over the city's significant increase in burglaries and home invasions. According to Wilkewitz, the increase in prescription drug use throughout the metropolitan area was as much of a problem as the increase in heroin use.
