Brazen Burglar Scared Off By Homeowner After Breaking Into Home In Broad Daylight

Police are on the lookout for a brazen burglar who made forced entry into a Raintree home this afternoon, but was scared off by the homeowner, TLS has learned.

At about 2PM, the burglar had reportedly pried the rear sliding door and removed the door from its track to gain entry to the home. But moments after entering the home, the burglar heard the homeowner come home, and ran back out the rear door.

When the homeowner heard shuffling around in his home, he phoned police.

Multiple police officers responded to the home and searched the area, but the burglar was gone.

The burglar got away empty-handed.

CIU is investigating.

  1. we need answers from the mayor & elected officials:
    1. whats the ratio of reported burglaries vs arrests
    2. whats the ratio of incarceration vs arrests

  2. Where in Raintree? We (should I say my dogs) are waiting for him/her. We look out for my neighbors also. To #1 – never once did we have a problem here; our dogs took care of it for all of us here. An alarm couldn’t do what they have done for this neighborhood. Nevertheless, how creepy is that to have someone enter your home like that. Happend to my parents when we lived in Queens NY. Didn’t know till the next morning. We were all sleeping.

  3. According to anonymous posters on this website, most people usually call LCSW first. Does this prove that all these anonymous posters are misinformed? Or was this specific story an exception to the norm.

  4. To yossie, in answer to your question and curiosity the number of arrests to burglaries will always be lower. Typically when a burglar does get caught and arrested, police are sometimes able to link a number of burglaries to them. I’m sure if you were privy to the statistics it would only be used to complain that not enough is being done by police.

  5. I once caught a fellow breaking into my home,
    He told me his name was Moore.
    I introduced him to my forty-four,
    And now he is No-Moore.

    Need a generator or shotgun? Call the pros!

  6. House is on Lanes Mill Road by looks of picture.
    Brazen is right, as the ratio of police officers working on the street is way too low given the amount of people in this town.

  7. to #9 – that’s for sure. They did a feature on, I think, a 20/20 news show, or some show like that a while back, and they said that the only homes that were safe that they tested were the ones that had dogs.; way better than any expensive alarm system you could install. May not be 100%, however, pretty close. It has been working for us. Just saying…

  8. wake up people! cops & LCSW can’t handle the amount of crime in Lakewood. They must be so backed up with cases that it’s an impossibility to catch the person(s) involved. (no doubt nobody can track whoever is responsible because of the various aliases most undocumented go by. Just take a look @ how desperate people are to smuggle into The States by the recent pickup in Texas that was packed with 23 illegals & crashed!) Time to take matters into your own hands. Take extra time to beef up security.Prevention is the best deterrent. whether it be cameras, alarm systems, watch dog, whatever. This is a serious problem that will continue to grow unless people start using common sense, be aware of suspicious activities/ characters, and become proactive. These low- lifes need to be dealt with aggressively. Don’t remain complacent . Do what you must to protect your valuables and most importantly, family. Time to get with the program. & to those of you who rent to illegals – thanks a lot! hope the rent $ you collect is worth the burden you are imposing on your fellow citizens!

  9. Back in the day, when one wished to ward off the enemy, they would behead one of their foes, affix it to a pike and post it at the gate.


  10. Go Adopt a dog you can save his life and he can save yours also!Dont Adopt if your gonna tie him outside on a chain in your yard !!!A dog tied up in the yard cant help you besides responsible pet owners know your dog is your family member you take good care of him he will take care of you and yours..Adopt its only right!!!!!

  11. Jackson has had a slew of burglaries too. On a popular social media site one person commented on a local news page that his home was robbed but thankfully they didn’t harm his dogs. Dogs don’t always deter. People will ignore a dog’s barking for it’s just a dog. But an alarm blaring, that gets attention. There was a show on television not too long ago where these ex-thieves got permission to attempt to rob someone’s home to prove they didn’t have enough security, then show them how to improve it. Time and time again homeowners defended their dogs ability to deter the would be robbers. Time and time again the “thief” waltzed right in, ransacked the place, and walked right out, with the dogs just barking and following along. One of the guys actually said that in all the houses he had robbed in his former bad days, dogs never bothered him once. Dogs can help, but they always recommended alarms and doing various things to make it difficult for a thief to enter, make it not worth his time. TLS editor, sorry for comment #16, I was late to the party I guess.
