Bob Seger Burglary-Family, Friends and Alarm Systems

Bob Seger

Bob Seger's house in Orchard Lake, Michigan was broken into last August and his prized 1978 Gibson Les Paul guitar, and personal valuables such as cash, a Rolex watch and autographed Shaquille O'Neal Sneakers were all stolen.

The suspect arrested Tuesday and charged with larceny from a building was identified as 20 year old Andrew D. Thompson of Waterford Township, MI-a close family friend. Police say Thompson attended a party thrown by Seger's 16 year old daughter last August and broke into the house afterwards to pilfer the items. The 1978 Les Paul is seen in Seger's hands on the cover of his 1994 "Greatest Hits" album. Its retail value is approximately $8000-$10,000 but it was reportedly 'priceless' to Seger.  

Interestingly, that guitar all of a sudden appeared later in Seger’s backyard.

Thompson denies stealing the guitar although Detective Darrell Betts said it turned up right after he questioned Thompson about the incident.

Betts also suggested Thompson broke into the back door after the small party had ended to steal the items.

The story:

This heartbreaking scenario is all too common. Very often people are burglarized by a friend, relative, or coworker. A substantial percentage of burglaries are committed by persons that have been inside your home that you trusted implicitly.

A burglar alarm system could have helped prevent this tragedy by alerting the authorities and Seger of the intrusion. Remarkably, apparently no burglar alarm was present or the alarm was not in use because Seger was reportedly moving.

Of course the best home security system in the world can be defeated by poor management of the alarm code(s). Only people who absolutely need access to your home should have an alarm code and the corresponding telephone "safe word" password.

You should also regularly change your alarm code to ensure that access to your home stays controlled. If you have a maid service or babysitter that needs access to the residence-give them a separate "user" code that will only disarm the alarm-NOT your "Master" code that can be used to access system settings. Many security companies also allow you to track online when and what code is used-which can help in the event a theft is discovered without a break in.

  4. Burglar alarm systems

    The burglar alarm systems prevent our house and office from theft attempts. They are divided into two major parts; the wireless alarm systems and the cabled alarm systems. The burglar alarm systems are sold in our country and in the world by some firms, some of which are also offering these alarm systems for rent to their clients.





    In recent years the alarm systems monitoring is very sophisticated and widespread. The alarm receiving centers are keeping track of your alarm system during 7/24. In case of theft attempt a triggered alarm signal is received by the alarm receiving center and round the clock on duty personnel of the center informs you and your relatives. If the received alarm is genuine, then the police is immediately called and led to the location of burglary.

    Paradox, Crow, DSC and Caddx are generally the most selling alarm systems in our country. The reason lies in the fact that these alarm systems are functioning in great accuracy and efficiency. The deficient alarm system would not only disappoint you as a client but it would also seriously threaten the firm which provides a-two-year guaranty service. Therefore professional firms are generally using these alarm systems.



    On the whole the most constructed alarm systems at the start consist of one unit PIR detector and one unit MC. The PIR detector is supposed to watch the corridor and the overall area and to detect a movement there. But the MC magnetic contact, which is placed on the entrance door, provides information to the alarm panel in case of disallowed access. Structured in this way a simple alarm system networking comprises the following components:



    1. Burglar alarm system panel

    2. Burglar alarm system panel keypad

    3. Movement Detector

    4. Magnetic Contact

    5. Alarm and Siren Battery Accumulator

    6. External Ambient Light Siren

    7. Cable and Connection Equipment

    In this way they can be divided into 7 groups. The 70-80% of the constructed alarm systems is built on these components. Planning correctly at first to have such a system is not a bad idea because it is both economic and it provides an efficient security. The very basic system can later on be extended through the connection of additional Detector. For instance, placing a Movement Detector in every room and Magnetic Contact on every window in future would exceedingly enhance the security.



    Sensors to be added to alarm systems are not limited to the above-mentioned ones. Such detectors can also be added:

    1. Glass break detectors

    2. Water flood detectors

    3. Smoke and heat detectors

    4. Gas detectors

    Connecting these detectors makes the alarm systems today more sophisticated. So you can control the other areas of your own home over your alarm system panel. Using its panels the alarm system is also able to realize the automated systems of the house and building. Opening and closing your station wagon from distance through your mobile and many other actions such as switching on and off the lights at home can today be carried out through the alarm system panels. Today the alarm systems are able to send alarm messages over the fixed landline to the alarm receiving center and, if requested, to your mobile or fixed landline numbers. In this way you start to be aware of the alerting signal and are able to take an immediate action. If there is no fixed landline at home, you can make a notification to the information receiving center and to your own mobile or landline by using GSM modules.

  10. Most of the real people I know don't have burglar alarms on their homes. I bet most politicians and the deep pockets that support them do. Perhaps that's why everyone still foots the bill for the 14% who actually have these alarm systems in place.Alarm Monitoring

  11. That was very rational. When deciding to put up security cameras, determine first the areas you’d like monitored. This gadget could be quite expensive if you’d put up one unit in every corner of the house. The key to such problem is proper angling. Home safety is paramount, that’s why it is really good news that home security cams are more affordable now. Having a secure home wouldn’t then be at all impossible for some people.
