Thread: People knocking on my door at night time

    Default People knocking on my door at night time

    Last night and the night before, someone has knocked on my door very late at night. The neighbors say they've experienced the same and tell me it's theives.

    What would their game/angle be of getting me to open the door? Even if I do, I have a large metal gate in the way.

    If the house appears empty, they'll come back.

    Interesting. I've noticed a major uptick in home robberies. People getting desperate perhaps. I had a really nice small appliance lifted from my outside kitchen.

    Had this happen the first year I was here. Burglars casing the joint with a friend down the street waiting for a hand signal. As soonb as my wife turned on a light they ran.
    Life in paradise includes cameras, dogs, vigilance, and whatever weapons you can muster. If nothing else you can make a crude spear by cutting off a piece of iron tubing at a sharp angle.
