Another attempted burglary here. One morning I found drill holes in my front door where the extra locks are located. The burglar had tried to open the door but failed so he left. The police called it the 'Romanian method'.

I m Romanian and... I get the pun they made (:

Jeez, all of your stories sound really scary.
I don't have any real invasion stories, only events like " i think i see someone looking out the window " which compared to everything else said in here, just sounds silly.

I m always worried about my grandparents' house getting invaded by someone, because they live ina rural area, where security cameras are practically inexistent.

There is a pun?

I thought they meant that this was the way Romanian burglars operate...

It's just gypsies giving Romania a bad reputation because whenever they're asked where they come from when they're begging on the streets or stealing they'll say they're Romanians when in fact they're not, so some people think gypsies are Romanians when in fact they're their own community.

This thread just reminded of this memory.....

In the days of not locking your doors, that was a quite while ago, LOL, my brothers and sisters and I were watching TV munching burgers in my fathers house, and for some reason we all ended up in the kitchen talking, and when we went back to the TV room, there was a small fat boy sitting there in front of the TV munching our burgers (a goldilocks moment)

That was a shock in itself with someone quietly sneaking into the house, but the guy was not quite right in the head, and would not give us his name, so we could go get his mother or father.

It was a few hours later with this guy eating us out of house and home, and his mother was seen going up and down the street, so they were reunited.

Seems he did this 'home invasion' thing quite often to get food LOL

We've had them before.

Several years ago we got robbed like 5 times in a row bc nobody was staying at home much at the time. We lost many things, Jewelry, Nintendo Wii, PS3 Console, 2 TV's, a Microwave, a power plant and I may be missing somethings from the list. The problem was solved when we installed an alarm system and since the house is more active now nobody dares to get close either. We also have a dog now with us too and it intimidates the unannounced visitors. I even sleep with a machete beside my bed just in case I have to get creative if somebody attempts a burglary while I'm sleeping.
