Blowtorch Burglars are Melting Doors to Gain Entry
In shocking images, crafty burglars can be seen using a blowtorch to quickly bypass home security. This simple, but effective new tactic is scaring home owners into action. Thankfully there are ways to prevent it from happening.
Torch Guard is a brand-new company that has been set up specifically to stop the cunning thieves in their tracks. The metal plates that they sell are fixed onto the door and prevent the lock from being pulled out once the plastic is melted by using a blowtorch.
While a burglary of any description is never a nice thing to come home to. It is especially horrible that people buy UPVc plastic doors believing them to be both modern and secure. They’d never in a million years expect they could be bypassed so quickly and easily. All it takes is a gas blowlamp bought from a local hardware store.
Criminals are Leaving Homeowners Petrified
It’s common knowledge that breaking into houses is especially scummy. Even hardened criminals don’t respect house burglars, as they are seen as cowardly and only a few steps down from rapists and paedophiles. Real criminals see themselves as tough guys and preying on the weak, such as women and children, is bang out of order.
Burgling old people’s bungalows is the type of crime that criminals have been beaten up for once they enter prison on remand.
Christmas time is the worst period of the year for breaking and entering, simply because thieves know that there will be plenty of presents under the tree. This is doubly wicked because children are expecting Father Christmas to visit them. Instead they find out that a rotten burglar has taken their prezzies away to sell on the black market. Not nice.
The First Blowtorch Home Invasion was in 2017
2017 saw the first spate of blowtorch burglaries in the UK, although it probably happened in isolation well before this date, it has been getting more and more frequent. Raids of this type have been recorded up and down the country. They tend to happen in spurts because once the gang responsible are caught it will die down until another crew of scumbags take the reigns again.
Crimestoppers are Even on Twitter!
If you see anyone attempting to burglarise a home you should phone your local police. Alternatively, if you’ve got information that you think might help solve or prevent a crime, then contact Crime Stoppers instead. You can speak anonymously if you feel more comfortable.
You might be as amazed as I was to find out that Crime Stoppers are even on Twitter, such is the pull of social media, eh? Its tentacles reach everywhere, but that is clearly a good thing if it’s helping to stop criminals.
