    I'm pretty sure someone just tried to break into my house right now while I was sitting here. NDB called me about 20 minutes ago and said he was on his way home from work. His Audi is very loud, so I can always hear him coming down the street.

    Well, I didn't hear his car, but someone came up to the front door, opened the security door and started fiddling with the locks in the door -- jiggling them, it sounded like they were trying to flip them in and out. I sat on the couch, frozen for about 10 seconds while this went on (the couch is about 20 feet away from the front door). Then I thought, "SHIT I'VE GOT TO HIDE BEFORE THEY GET IN" so I grabbed my phone, ran past the front door, and down the dark hallway into the guest bedroom that is filled with boxes, and hid behind the boxes. Then I called NDB and whispered, "Where are you? Are you near the house? Someone is trying to get in!" He told me to stay on the phone with him and that he's close to home.

    So he pulls up about one minute later, and I don't hear the fiddling at the door anymore, but now my dogs in the back yard, and the neighbors dogs are all going NUTS and barking like crazy. NDB runs into the house, grabs an arsenal of stuff, and takes off out of the house. I locked the door behind him -- dude's on his own now!!!

    Haven't heard gunshots yet, so I think all is well!! ;) Hopefully he scared him off.

    Wow.....scary stuff. I don't even like to answer doors for mormons now either. Do you have an alarm system? Might want to consider one.

    Damn! This is one of those situations where a 12ga shotgun would have been handy. You just sit on the couch with a glass of wine and wait for the front door to open. When it opens you rack the shotgun loudly........ "So, you comin' in or not?" :mrgreen:

    Sarah you should've gone for the gun first thing. People are nuts! I though you moved OUT of the ghetto? Time for you to learn how to shoot straight or drop some Krav on them.

    Well here's what happened. NDB found the guy a couple streets down. He had a handful of fliers for a window and door company. Before NDB confronted him, he watched him. He said the guy was only going to dark houses (my lights weren't on), and he would stand in front of them and look in the windows. Then he would go up to the doors and try to open them. NDB said he did not knock on any doors, and he did not leave fliers on any doors.

    He didn't knock on my door, and he didn't leave a flier. He just came up to the door, opened the security door, and started messing with the inside door. This guy was not trying to sell me windows and doors.

    NDB confronted him, and said, "You just scared the shit out of my fiance!" The guy stammered a bit, then said, "All I did was open the security door and jiggle the door handle. I shut the security door afterwards." Well, they "talked" for a bit and NDB demanded his ID (which he wouldn't turn over), but he did get one of the fliers he was supposedly handing out.

    NDB came home, we called the cops, filed a police report, and I left a voicemail at the window and door place this guy supposedly works at. I will be calling them again tomorrow and making sure this guy gets fired (if he is even employed with them).

    It's one thing to go door to door selling things. It's another thing to go door to door at night, not knock, not leave a flier, open the security door and try to open the inside door.

    The police officer said I need to call back tomorrow to see if we can press charges or anything. If I can, I will.

    Good job biff!!! If I were NDB, I would hav ehad the cops there to continue the "talk" Glad everyone is home and safe now too. I bet that guy doesnt even work for the company though, probably just made some flier up for an excuse to why he was going up to peoples houses:grumble:

    NDB didn't have his phone on him at the time, or else he would have held the guy. The police officer told me over the phone that if we see him again, NDB can restrain him until the police get there to arrest him. Upon telling him this, NDB immediately "suited up", hopped in his car and went looking for the guy. He's still out there looking for him now -- he wants this guy arrested.

    We'll see if he works for the company tomorrow. I'll be calling them for sure.

    Glad you guys found him, though. It's odd that he would be passing out flyers at night?!? That's just ridiculous! Glad you're getting an alarm. It's more a peace of mind thing. Like HH said, doesn't matter where you live....there will be break ins no matter where you live. In fact, I'm sure affluent neighborhoods would be hit, too, considering the wealth inside (they're just more likely to have an alarm system in place).

    Get his a$$ fired, Biff!!

    Well, we found him, but then he took off. So NDB is looking for him again right now. He wants him arrested -- the police can't do anything unless he's found.
