Don’t Be a Victim, Be Prepared: Theft Prevention

You’re about to go to bed when you get a security alert from your camera at the shop.

Someone’s breaking in.

You’re not going to let this happen for the second time, so you jump in the car with your phone, flashlight, and gun.

Seven minutes later, you meet the sheriff’s deputies on site, where you see the van, the bolt cutters, and two alleged burglars.

(Innocent until proven guilty — always!)

They run away into the woods, so you pursue.

The sheriffs catch one, you catch the other, and all the officers give you fist-bumps.

Caught in the act, no bond, charged with second-degree burglary.

This is a true story, by the way.

Jake Baxter, Owner at Lawn Vets Outdoors, US Navy veteran, and former reservist, joins Hardscape Growth to share his military-grade expertise on how to protect your property and job site.
