If You Spot a Rubber Band on Your Front Door Handle Call The Police!

Criminals have a new technique when it comes to singling out potential victims. A Woman in Texas is trying to raise awareness about a disturbing incident that recently happened to her several days ago. She warns that Texas is not the only place this is happening. What is most disturbing is that this new trend is popping up everywhere. It’s currently happening to neighborhoods across the country after criminals have established a sinister new trend as a way to mark their next victims.

Warning!!! Two weeks ago during the day, a hard knock was at my front door, not a regular knock but almost pounding, (I honestly thought something may have happened to someone and they needed help) but something didn’t feel right….and I DO NOT answer the door when I am here by myself. So don’t bother! After several Knocks, they finally left. I glanced and could see it was a man through the stained glass of my door. After about 30 minutes I walked outside to look for what I thought would be a brochure, but instead found a rubber band around my knob to hold the door to open when I unlocked the latch. I called Ron and he told me to get the gun out and leave it out. The Sheriff came by yesterday and said this is happening all of a sudden, as soon as you unlatch the door, they do not wait for you to turn the knob, they can bust in on you. Anyway just be careful, I USE to be such a trusting person, but not at all anymore! So let me just say, I have a GUN and I know how to use it, just FYI, I out shot my husband the last time we target practiced, so believe me, I will use it. I have too much to live for! Do NOT ANSWER doors without knowing for sure you know who is on the other side! Those days are over!!!! 😡😡😡Kids need to be made aware of this too!
