This is your typical home invasion through the front door. The good news is the homeowner was prepared for the perpetrators when they entered his home. This why a full perimeter security system is so important for you, your home and family, it prepares you for these type of break ins and it also sometimes scares the perpetrators away. It also gives you time to load the Smith and Wesson and put an end to this invasion quickly if needed.
