Larceny Prevention  

Larceny can be defined as a crime that involves stealing a person’s belongings or valuables causing the victim to suffer financial losses. The crime is broadly classified as mild/petty and grand or serious larceny.

Loss of valuables that cost less than $500 falls under petty larceny. Loss of anything that costs more than $500 is considered a grand larceny. The severity of the punishment meted out depends directly on the seriousness of the crime committed.

There are numerous ways to prevent larceny at the first place. Always remember to lock your home before leaving, even if you have decided to visit the neighboring house or neighboring street. Shut your doors and windows at nighttime. Most of the larceny cases occur at nightfall when the locality is fast asleep.

Place sensors or sound detectors on the walkway or the driveway. These will go off when an intruder or an obstacle comes too close for comfort. You can also invest on an alarm system to prevent burglaries.

Lock your cars while no in use. Never leave the doors or windows open under any circumstances. Do not place attractive packages or papers on the seat in such a way that it is visible to outsiders. The chances of the culprit entering your cars and waiting for you to return, threatening you to empty your wallet or give out credit cards is very high if you leave the doors or windows open. Park your vehicles inside the garage space. Do not leave them outdoors unless absolutely necessary.

If you notice anything suspicious, do not hesitate to call 911.
