Your Matt's Guide to Theft Prevention

Posted on August 30th, 2007 Filed under Guides

Over the years I have lost a lot of my own personal property to outright theft. Most recently was just last week when I noticed a missing lighter from my front porch. Further investigation told of a missing stereo system from my van and everything of value outside of one bicycle, backpacking gear, and a TV from my garage. A few preventative measures could have avoided this entire ordeal.

You know.. that’s about all I got. I don’t really know so much about theft prevention. If you have any suggestions, let us know!
