We teach our kids to NOT TALK TO STRANGERS..
But it is getting so that we as adults must think
twice before we talk to strangers also.
We should certainly not let them into our homes.
A report this week in the Times Leader:
WILKES-BARRE – Police reported the following: Frances Gorski of St. Clair Street reported that two women stopped at her home and talked to her as if they knew her. Police said the two were able to enter the home and remove approximately $2,700 from an upstairs lock box Monday afternoon.
Sure we would all like to be helpful…
but we must be cautious.
Look at what happened to the good Samarians who stopped to help people who supposedly had car problems on the interstate.
They were robbed.
The drug problem is out of control.. and the addicts are desperate.
Just look at the fellow that robbed 2 local businesses last month.
HE WAS USING 3O BAGS OF HEROIN A DAY !
|Ten Dollar bags|
Please … do not keep your valuable or sentimental
jewelry in your jewelry box !
That is one of the first places a thief will look.
Hide valuable jewelry, money or other expensive items in unlikely locations or it can end up here !
