Head’s Up – Attempted Break-In on Park Place
Just wanted to post that our house was a victim of an attempted break-in yesterday afternoon. The would-be thief attempted to kick in our back door, but was apparently scared away when the alarm system went off (we have ADT). They did not gain access, and only minor damage to the surrounding door jamb/casing.
We do have a security camera that faces out the front of the house, and it did capture an unknown person only a couple of minutes before the alarm was triggered. Pics are attached to this post.
DC Police responded quickly, but there was not much they could do, as entry didn’t happen and nothing was stolen. They also mentioned that the pictures that were captured of the person on the front of the house could not be used, as the break-in was attempted in the rear, and it doesn’t depict the person actually breaking in (even though the pictures were captured 90 seconds before the alarm was triggered — NOT a coincidence in my opinion).
Be safe and be aware!
