‘Tis the Season…

November 4th, 2011

Well, now that Halloween is over, it is time for the crooks and criminals to turn their attention to the other upcoming holidays.  We have now entered the prime season for retail theft.  With stores and display windows filled with lots of potential presents and other goodies, the crooks come out en masse.  Want an indication that the fun has begun?  See this article from today’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper:

Apparently, three men tried to burglarize the Apple store at North Point Mall.  The good news is that the police responded to an alarm system signal and were able to apprehend the suspected burglars.

So, as we get closer to the next set of holidays, be on the lookout for more of this type of activity at your business and make sure your commercial security system is working.  ‘Tis the season for burglaries and thefts.
