(WICHITA, Kan.) — Summer is the season for baseball, barbecues, and burglars. While you may be distracted making vacation plans, thieves in Wichita are hard at work scoping out neighborhoods and homes that are easy targets."I see there's a nice vulnerable point over here with this open window," said private security expert Bruce Reesman during a recent assessment of a Wichita neighborhood.
Reesman is a former law enforcement officer who owns Smart Security and Investigations. His business is keeping people and their property safe from criminals.
"You want to make it (your home) look secure from the street so they'll move on down the street to somebody else's house that's an easier target," said Reesman.
Burglars typically strike between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. when most people are at work. These days, the preferred method of entry is simply kicking in the front or rear door.
