    I received this update from the VCDL (Virginia citizens defense league)

    Man after reading this I got the chills. This is the EXACT scenario that always plays through my head and one of the reasons I have a gun always at the ready. This could have turned MUCH worse. Rape, murdered, house set on fire etc. I've read about these same scenarios with the aforementioned acts taking place.

    Just a side note; with the suspects only weighing 140-160 approximately, I guess they couldn't have really harmed the grown man in the house right? I'm basing that off of another individual who has been posted about time and time again on this site as only being a skinny bean pole of a kid.

    Anyways, I say NEVER underestimate your opponent and always expect the unexpected.

    Here is the story;


    Be careful, I have heard that there have been several similar incidents in the surrounding areas of Fredericksburg ! ! !


    From the Stafford County Sheriff's Office: http://tinyurl.com/86jhwjh


    CRIME ALERT
    By PIO Bill Kennedy
    Stafford County Sheriff's Office, Crime Prevention Unit, Stafford, Virginia
    May 21, 2012

    The Stafford sheriff's office is investigating a home invasion robbery that took place early Monday morning at approximately 12:30 a.m. in the Widewater Village subdivision located in North Stafford. Two suspects forcefully entered the home through a basement window. They awakened the homeowners (husband and wife) while asleep in their upstairs bedroom with their 10 month old baby. One of the suspects was armed with a knife. The suspects ordered the victims to disrobe and then taped their mouths and bound their hands. They were then escorted throughout their home as the suspects stole various items to include cash and jewelry. Once completed, the suspects escorted the victims to their basement where they were further bound and threatened their lives if they left the room. Later, the man and woman were able to free themselves and fled to a nearby neighbor where the Sheriff's Office was notified.

    We are seeking the assistance in the apprehension of these suspects who are described as:

    Black Males, late teens to early twenties. Both appeared to be about the same size. Approximately 5'6-8" in height, weighing 140-165 pounds. Both were wearing Black sweatshirts, Blue jeans, Black hats and had their faces covered with Blue bandanas.

    Items taken from the residence include Rolex watches, Seiko watches, Sony digital camera, Cannon digital camera, several hundred dollars in Japanese Yen and a gold ring.

    Sheriff's Detectives are also investigating a burglary to a residence in that same area that occurred within the past 24 hours. Forced entry was also made to this residence through a basement window. That residence was unoccupied at the time of the burglary. Detectives are investigating to determine if the two are related.

    Same thing around here. The main reason my wife and I are both armed.

    On a related note: It mentions basement windows. This should be a reminder to all of us about the vulnerability of most basement windows, even in homes with alarm sytems. I'm a big fan of glass block myself. They're not that expensive but really help.

    PS: I think your icon should be a juicy Ribeye Steak.

    This story says that the homeowners were woken up in their beds by the BGs. I wonder if they would even had enough time to think about their weapon, wherever it was, much less had time for action.

    I do agree though, they should've had a glass block or some other sort of preventative measure so they could at least had time to draw their weapon.

    True if they were already upstairs it would be hard I guess. I would have had mine down on the shelf under the nightstand and as soon as I was awoken grabbed it and started shooting. Easier said then done though I know.

    An almost worst case scenario. Home invasions are a scary thing.

    Yeah no kidding. That's a first for me too. Hopefully they catch these scum bags and lock them up for a very long time.

    Better yet, they pick the wrong house (for them) right one for us, and get executed on the spot after the homeowner fears for their lives.

    They always mention race when a suspect is on the loose. People need to know what they look like.

    Huh? It's usually how many people were involved and what they were wearing. I never hear the news say skin eye or hair color.

    about two years ago i had someone trying to kick in my back door one night.....

    he was high on something and had picked up a cinder-block i use in the back of my truck in winter time.....was going to smash my door (which has a window in the middle of it) with it.....I had my Sig 9mm at the time which dissuaded him.......it took a cops taser to get him into custody....

    home invasions are something everyone should worry about.....and where i live its every other day on the news someones home is getting broken into

    Last night we ran on a home invasion. The victim stated that he was asleep when he woke up to a brick crashing through his back window. He woke up and he had no power whatsoever. (turns out the perps had shut off his power.). He luckily had a gun( an OLD .38 caliber single action revolver that was unloaded.). He was able to get one bullet into the gun and fired 1 time into the dark if his living room. He could not find a flashlight that worked so he went in blind. He stated that from the flash of the gun he could see 4 " mexicans". They ran and jumped a few fences and got away. No one was harmed but still makes me wonder.

    Made me rethink our defense system.

    1-big dogs in the back yard that would not let someone they did not know in.
    2- dog inside to wake me up when outside dogs go nuts.
    3-Alarm system set to go off with all doors( including garage doors) and windows. With a power outage the alarm system has a battery backup that's good for 24 hours.
    4-I keep my weapon and flashlight and cell phone on my nightstand and my wife keeps both in the same spot on her side. My 12 ga is also close by if I have time to get it.

    This scares me due to the fact that my wife is home alone when I work overnights. So tonight when I get home I am going to have to talk to her about clearing the house and other things. The sad part is that it has come to this and it sucks.

    Everyone really needs to take home security seriously. I mean taking s look at how you might think someone can get in, any weak points. Double check that everything is locked at night. Hell, I make sure everything is locked during the day when I'M HOME! Too many stories of drugged up psychos or just plain scumbag criminals walking in unlocked doors during the day.
