WARE, Mass. (WWLP) – Three people were arrested after a series of break-ins in Ware and Belchertown. 22News has some important safety reminders to protect you and your home.
About 34% of break-ins happen right at your front door. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you have a strong lock on your door, and that you remember to use it.
Jason Young from Rocky’s Ace Hardware told 22News, “A deadbolt is really what you’re looking for and those can be installed by themselves or in a set. It doesn’t have to be a set that comes with a deadbolt you can have them drilled in.”
Rocky’s Ace Hardware recommends getting a “Grade 1” deadbolt, which gives the most protection.
Make sure you always lock all of your windows. For extra protection you can also consider installing window alarms.
