Coincidentally speaking of all this and my above post, the same guy that came into my yard last year or so walked straight jn again today. I was on the phone and as soo as he saw me he quickly turned and walked back out to the main road. I followed him for a bit but lost him. He went and scoped out other yards of small businesses.

The guy looks about late 20's or mid 30s, caucasion, glasses, tattoo of words or symbols in a line on his right lower calf, and about 170-190lbs. Anyone see this fagggor around let me know. Gonna be reportin it tomorrow morning.

I had a dude walk into my drive way just as i pulled up and he said he was looking for the ppl in the basement. We don't have our basement rented out. A week later, my grandmother told me someone was in our backyard scoping out the scene i assume. A few days later the guy i first saw in my drive way tried breaking into the basement side of the house. He probably thought we had it rented out and wouldn't notice but that's actually the area where me and my brother chill out in. Anyways, i see him through the window and he bolts for the street. Me and my brother chased him down the street about half a block and just as that happens a cop pulled up and got him and us. Explained the situation to the police, realized how stupid it was to chase him in the street. Anyways, the police said the guy was known to do this and is in and out of jail. They sent another investigator to take prints off the window and door. After that, never heard of the situation again, never called to see what happened to the guy. One cop that i knew through volunteering did say that he won't come back to our house because ppl like him look to make a quick break and enter and don't want to put in work. Anyways, he also told me that if we caught him on the street and hit him or anything, it would technically be battery. Be smart and safe!

Our house is fairly new and the security system on the inside was all set but the outside still had to have the cameras installed which was done about a week after this incident. Cameras don't really stop it from happening but they do prevent common thieves from coming due to the amount of work they will have to do to make a quick buck.

And those stairs. They seem to be everywhere, and are tripping hazards! Not my fault that thieves are clumsy on their feet.

Crime Maps - Vancouver Police Department

Updated every Wednesday (usually) for last week incidents.
TFA - Theft from Auto
RBNE - Residential Break and Enter
CBNE - Commercial Break and Enter
TOA - Theft of Vehicle (car was stolen from..)

There's also crime alerts you can sign up from postal codes which gives you information if there's something going on in your neighbourhood and mugshots of wanted people/crimes via crime stoppers

I asked the police what my rights are if hypothetically someone entered my premises or broke in. He said it's trespassing if they are on your property if it's 9pm-6AM (if I recall the time) and you are entitled to call the cops if they don't leave.

If someone broke in, you can beat the crap out of them, but not beat them to till they die You are self defending your own "turf" and just say that, you live with women and protecting them as an act of self-defense. I said that, I didn't want to get charged with assault and sued for attacking someone and he said those cases are to the extreme, only in the states. Big guys MMA style guys on the theives or pulling out a gun on them to the point they are clinging to the edge of their life type of thing.

In the end, he recommends not attacking them as you don't know if they will whip out a gun or carry some disease and pass it onto you. Call the police ASAP if anything.

Go to ebay and search for CCTV with D1 resolution capability. Once you installed one of them you will realize the field of vision is really small for any camera.. 5m x 5m max, so get as many channels as you can afford.. I would say for a 2 garage house with a yard.. 16 cameras should just cover it.

D1 is not HD, it's barely above VGA.
