RE: [MPD-5D] Break-in attempt ??? A discovered a ladder in my backyard this morning.
- I'll check the reports to see if any ladders have been stolen lately or used in any burglaries. I don't have any recollection of that type of crime taking place in the area.

No, I totally agree with you. Last year, someone left the back of their wood futon out by the trash, and a criminal used it to climb onto my roof and into my house............

My thoughts are:
1. They may have used the ladder to break into a neighbors house and dumped
it in your yard to cover their tracks.
2. Leaving the ladder in the front of your house provides a criminal with at
free tool to break into another house.
FYI to the group try not to leave ladders outside of your house, if you have
to leave a ladder outside always lock it up so cannot be removed from your
property or opened and used on your property.
Of course I tend to be a bit paranoid and the rest of the group may not

I'd like an opinion on something weird.
Someone left a ladder in my backyard sometime late last evening or
It wasn't tall enough for breaking in and I have a security system with
posted signs. What kind of criminal goes through the trouble on getting
inside the gate and just leaves a ladder behind? It wasn't even set up, it
was on the ground. Makes no sense.
I had the guy I date remove it and put it out front with a "FREE - just take
it" sign on it.
Can the officers on this group or anyone else comment? (I live on Bryant).
SHould I have called the police?
