This kind of thing is also very common in my neighborhood. People always leave a garage door open or the side gate open. And to tie in with what the female said in the article, nothing like that happens to us either! But this is def an eye opening, and something to take into consideration next time i leave the garage door open.

I like your blog

My golf clubs were stolen out my garage in broad daylight last week. I inadvertently left the garage door open for 1-2 hours after I became distracted by my dog. My car was in rhe garage and my wife's car in the driveway when the theft occurred. They left two older gags of clubs and a large container of new merchandise from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Where do they sell the bag, clubs and balls. Pawn shops in Los Angeles require fingerprinting to make it difficult to sell stolen items. Retail golf shops usually don't pay cash for used clubs but give store credit. Besides ebay, where else can they see the clubs. The clubs sure mean alot more to the owner than any else. I am still in a state of disbelief.

Items stolen in this fashion can be sold out of the trunk of a car. Meaning garage sales, swap meets, at a driving range, through the newspaper, e-Bay etc. Realizing that the theif is looking for quick cash ,items are usually sold cheap meaning for pennies on the dollar. If you are a drug addict looking for a $50.00 fix then selling $2,000 worth of clubs for $50.00 meets the need at the moment.

Have any of you ever heard of the Garage Butler? It will close your garage door if it gets inadvertantly left open. You can get one at www.midwestgaragebutler.com
it is definatly going to be a household security device.
