With all the electronics & anti-thzeft gizmos we have now in the urban areas, how much has it helped?
Theft still occurs, break-inís still are common & theft of belongings happens.
Itís expanding to previously calm areas like distant suburbs, state parks & campgrounds. Anywhere a collection of possible goods for theft is concentrated and suspected easy targets.
As we are seeing increased RV sales, camping and growth of campers with it comes more crime, more deviants intent on theft for profit.
Itís not necessarily that urban theft has followed the campers. Some of it is the ďcampers or followersĒ among us. So sad to be friendly to your neighbor while thinking they may be the eyes casing the camp for the rest of the gang.
If they camp there, they are on the inside and donít need to steal and get awayÖ just hide it in their rig till time to leave.
We are at a time when everything and everyone can be suspect.
In the end, all you can do is be aware, remove obvious temptations and use anti-theft measures that really just keep the regular folks honest. A criminal will not be deterred and all locks can be defeated.
