Dorchester, Massachusetts (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
The holiday season is a time of well wishes and happiness. Spending time with family and loved ones, gift giving, and enjoying lots of delicious foods go hand in hand with this time of the year. Unfortunately, the holiday season is a tempting time for home burglars, who might be tempted by the presents and goodies they know are inside homes during this time of year.
In Dorchester, three armed men, posed as pizza delivery men, forced their way into an apartment and robbed the tenants of around $7,000 in cash and checks. While the residents were not injured, the robbers did flee the scene. Eventually, two of the men involved were arrested and the investigation continues. Unfortunately, home invasions and robberies are something that can happen. The Massachusetts insurance experts at H. Levenbaum Insurance Agency want to let residents know that they can prevent being a victim of such an unfortunate circumstance.
Here are some tips to prevent home robbery:
- Install motion activated lights. A well-lit home is safer from unwanted visitors such as burglars.
- Keep hedges and trees well trimmed. This keeps the view from inside of the house unobstructed.
- Never leave a key anywhere outside of the home – this is the first likely place a burglar will look.
- Avoid posting updates on social media that could alert burglars that a home is unoccupied for a specific duration of time.
- Be sure to keep all doors and windows locked.
- Consider installing a home security system such as an alarm.
It is essential for home owners to have adequate and comprehensive homeowners insurance in Massachusetts. This will protect homeowners if they incur losses or damages due to burglary after the fact. H. Levenbaum Insurance Agency offers comprehensive and customizable homeowners insurance policies for Massachusetts residents. The local insurance agents are ready and willing to provide options to Dorchester residents to keep their homes protected. Remember, installing a home security system such as an alarm is a deductible.
