To somebody and you work hard all day long trying to do the right thing you're taxes pay your bills. A mass a couple of possessions and then you come home. And some mystery in there that hasn't been at work all day or if he says -- job his break and in the people's houses. And taking your stuff like a Saturday happened in my parents never happen I mean that would. And I know how devastating it was for them because in essence and please don't take this wrong if -- of rape victim.

Did you have security cameras up -- have a pretty strong neighborhood watch organizations the united. -- We have very active never. -- So how how brazen do you have to be. There's still go and in that area and and commit house burglary. Well -- included in the that was important in this case it is.

News is that. -- cameras involved here you have maybe like -- to try to undermine India. Mr. ever committed a critical court. I spoke with representatives from one of the security. Several companies department what to Beijing trip -- -- happening.

How would you do that yet nobody in your pocket. I don't understand that. -- Plastic bag. So you prepared when you went man. Where I took it. Now let's move on to -- is some of the questions I posed before we went to the news and and David feel -- needed to jump in here if you have any questions. From. What you what was it that changed do you and and major now wanna do this anymore or have you done -- and she -- out of jail. Well first law have not done a number. Second. It was an account or where where prisoner and and that so. Let me going you know -- -- creek. Without. I wanna know.

Guilty that people would get up the next and relies cemented it in their house Tommy Tucker back inflection WW well.

This guy's total blank among burglary and you know he's talking about so if you wanna call in Uggla to take -- calls them via Austin accidents -- why would you give. A criminal access to the airwaves to -- a lot of break -- -- houses. I think for the same reason companies hired computer hackers. But it to check out their security system because you won the homeowner to know what it is they are up against in what is in the mind of somebody that would break in there home Robert Cecilia known security expert. And McAfee online security expert joins us right now in the morning Robert. How you -- on. When it comes to mind that's in designing security systems. Do you look at.

But that the figure is installing layers of protection -- that when they look at your home they say well that's something that might be insurmountable. I'd direct viewers could get caught in so they determined that aren't that risky to. Or too difficult and they'll choose unfortunately your neighbors. What are some of those layers of security you know I'm getting ready to move and selling them during the break and I'll definitely get. Security cameras and an alarm system and even though it's not a bad areas and places them look in at. Is that the is that the best way what are some of those layers and when it comes in his mid cities story about burglars attempting to cut the cord that.
