Smash and Grab robberies occur in the middle of the night, the store is closed, Alarm system is on and the cctv cameras running.
A variety of simple tools are used to gain entry, a stone on the ground, a garbage can, Hammer or pry bar to mention a few.
Once the window or door glass has been shattered, the alarm sirens go off, and the thieves generally in disguise know they have at least two minutes to get what they want before any chance of a alarm responder can respond to the call. It is amazing to watch the video play back to see how easily they gain entry and how much they can grab in such short amount of time.
We all figure two minutes is little time, but if you set your watch and walk around your store you will be surprised on how long two minutes is, and the opportunities you have.
