Summer vacations are here and they can be so relaxing. What isn’t relaxing, however, is the feeling of coming home to a house that’s been burglarized. The risk of that happening increases when homeowners are away. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp is thankful that isn’t a huge problem in this area, but he still urges residents to take precautions like doing everything possible to seem like you’re home, even when on vacation.
Sheriff Kettelkamp says there are some incidents happening in Edinburg.
If you believe someone has broken into your home, Sheriff Kettelkamp says it’s best to leave the residence and contact the authorities. He warns against confronting the intruder.
When it comes to firearms, Sheriff Kettlkamp says to only use one in a life or death, self-defense, situation. He also stresses the importance of being trained to use the weapon.
Sheriff Kettelkamp appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
