Now is a tragic time of year to experience a home burglary. Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross speak with Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox:
Cox said a lot of these types of crime are driven by economic factors. “And because of social issues such as drug abuse and addictions,” said Cox, “This time of year, people are in need more. You know, they, too want to provide.”
One of the easiest ways to avoid a burglary is to keep home doors locked. Cox warns that living in a rural area does not mean a person is safe.
