Hey Neighbors. My home on Tom Miller was broken into around 12:30 this morning...while my kids and I were here sleeping. I think that the combination of my alarm going off and me yelling at them from upstairs encouraged them to leave quickly, and no one was hurt. The did kick my door in though, and did quite a bit of damage to it. It appears that they were trying to take the TV, but left quickly, leaving it on the floor.

If you have an alarm, use it all the time. It could have been a much more serious situation had I not set mine. The police also pointed out that my blinds were open (which they are all the time...I like sunlight). I have always felt very safe in the hood, but this was a game changer. Please take precautions and continue to look out for your neighbors.

Wow glad to hear you are safe! That would be terrifying. Are there any leads on suspects?

Makes me want to order this ASAP. I think $80 for it is a good investment.

I'd actually recommend checking out the Medeco Maxum 11WC60L deadbolt. It's the only lockset that passed ALL of Consumer Reports break-in tests (lock pick, drill, kick-in, sledge hammer, and sawing).

I'm going to get one tomorrow.

That is scary... Did they kick in the front door or the back door? My blinds are usually closed, but there's no blind on the big back door window (yet).

Gosh. Glad you are safe.

Did you see them? Or a vehicle? Can you share any descriptions?

Thank you for taking time to make us aware of this regretful experience. I take from this experience that I need to be more engaging with my neighbors. We have enjoyed living in Muller, we intent to continue enjoying this beautiful community. Thanks for the tips about the alarm and the lock for the door. I am wondering what more can we do as a community.

A few years ago there was very little interest in starting a neighborhood watch. If there is now interest our APD District Rep would make arrangements:

Officer Antwain T. Tarver #5202
Region 3 District Representatives
Austin Police Department
