I agree, Mack. I've known of too many good families out in the county getting burglarized lately. I don't know if it is the case with this particular one, but it seems as though the meth heads are targeting the back roads now. If you have means, PLEASE get an alarm system. Purchase it despite the cost. You'll be more than willing after you're home is invaded, so you might as well do it now before it happens. We must take the county back to safer days.

To the misguided souls who keep preying on their fellow citizens - do you see this list of guns??? It's not uncommon for the country folk to have 'em. The quick buck is not worth your life. One day, you'll mess up and someone will be home. Or, your look out will mess up - or a neighbor will notice and come over. Don't get killed - get a new way of life. Find help. Have pride in your home town and help make it safer for all of us.

First if ANYONE offers you a too good to be true deal in ANYTHING then check with local Law Enforcement first, especially guns, 2nd write down all serial numbers in guns & descriptions of all of them, take photos of everything you own & if it has serial numbers write them down. Invest in a good dog, alarm, & let your neighbors (if you can trust them) to watch your house, if they see anyone at it call Law Enforcement. A lot of this seems to be happening during the day now, so it may not look as suspicious, but with the way things are going it will only get worse.
