He called me this morning from work to tell me someone broke into his apartment during the night while he was sleeping. When he got up this morning, his door was open. He looked out side and the mat in front of the door was askew and the screen on the window, next to the front door was off. He figures they took off the screen, pulled the window back (he has a stick in it, so it can open about 6 inches only) and reached thru & turned the deadbolt on the front door & came in. He had to get ready for work, so didn't really have a chance to check around much but his cell phone is missing off the table in his kitchen. He called Verizion once he got to work and reported it stolen & they've turned it off. He got the non-emergency number for the local police department from me & was going to call them. He said once he got off work he'd go see the apartment manager, to let them know...I believe he said the window screen was totally gone. He was thinking they may have thought no one was there and then he rolled over or made a noise in his sleep and they took off. I told him about Bob's idea of having a can of wasp & hornet spray handy...it can spray about 30 feet & if you sprayed someone in the face it would certainly stop them in their tracks long enough to get away. He just signed another 6 months lease there...I hope this doesn't cause him to be afraid to stay there.
Thank the Lord, they didn't harm him.
