I thought I`d like to share this with you.
As many of you know, my DW and I returned home from Florida on Monday 13th. On entering our house we saw a note left by the folks who had been the key holders of our house while we had been away.
Apparently our burglar alarm had gone off at 11.30 pm on Sunday [12th] and the alarm company had rang them [getting them out of bed] to check things out.
On arrival to our house they were greeted by a police response unit c/w a police dog and handler! :shocked025: They went through every room of our house but could not see any sign of a forced entry.
They finally decided to check out our cellar which has been converted into a "boys room" with a pool table and bar etc. and saw a bat flying around which had obviously activated the sensor located down there which had triggered the alarm.
Our friends tell me that it was like a scene from the Keystone Cops with two burly policemen with a German shepherd in tow chasing around the place trying to catch the critter using anything they could lay their hands [or paws ] on!
Eventually the "suspect" was caught and released back outside to carry on with his business....probably receiving a police caution for his/her efforts.
How I would have loved to have been there to witness it.
