Three recent incidents where burglars kicked in homeowners' doors have experts offering advice for ways to keep thieves out of your house.
Sunday, News4Jax shared the story of a man and woman whose home was burglarized while the couple was at the hospital, welcoming their first baby into the world.
The thieves got in by kicking in the door, stealing appliances, televisions and even baby clothes.
A city crime map of the couple's neighborhood showed there were 22 residential and commercial burglaries within a half-mile radius of the couple's home.
Experts say locking a door might seem like the common sense thing to do to keep people out, but oftentimes it's not enough.
“We always recommend a deadbolt above an existing knob lock,” said Gary Seliger of Piner's Lock & Safe.
