Doug actually posted the picture. We are off island but have a house sitter. The house sitter was home at the time so I am amazed that this person would come into our yard in broad daylight with people home. We have these cameras all over the house inside and outside. They send us email pictures whenever they detect movement. You cannot cut the power and disable them as they have battery backup and even if an intruder sees the camera and destroys it, it will have already emailed us their picture. As much as I would like to catch this person I hope they do not come back for a better picture. We have never had any trouble at our house but we have in the past few months had a lot of people working on the house. I absolutely trust most of the workers with the exception of an electrician that we had. One of his workers gave me the creeps and kept looking around our house, making friends with my dogs and I kept finding him places he should not have been. We let them go before they completed the job. I feel quite certain that it may be one of the people that work with this electrician.

I hope you are able to bust his ass wide open. I guess that is the one good thing with my dogs. You are not going to make friend with them,unless we introduce you to them. It can be difficult but I would recommend keeping them in separate rooms when strangers are around. Also train them to only except treats or food when they are give a certain command word.

It used to blow peoples minds,when my old dog Ceasar would not take a bite of their ham sandwich when they offered it to him. He would turn his head as if he was offended. The real problem is the Pet stores who want to give your dog a treat. I don't think they will ever be perfect but large,aggressive,and very agile is always a good deterrent.

Or you could go the Remington 870 shot gun route. that sound of a pump shot gun chambering a round followed by a vocal command works pretty well also.

Just a crazy idea I had. If I am able to open a bar on St Croix.their will be cash on hand at all times. So I thought I might teach the employees some fire arms training, I happen to currently do that now " Teach firearms " . I don't want to teach them to be stupid and unrealistic in any way,but if the opportunity was there,they had better protect themselves. When the word gets out that this crazy guy is training his people how to defend themselves.I wonder how many pieces of crap will step forward. I can understand the child that steals a loaf of bread because he is hungry and needs corrected,but someone who would break into your house while someone is there,is a whole different person. Best wishes,and I hope it is all there when you return.

Did he take anything or was the house sitter able to scare him off?

Tam, that's not supposed to happen in Cotton Valley. Survielance camera's are great but consider installing a gate.

What's he doing in this photo... can you tell? Is he lifting a gas can out of a box? Or putting a gas can into a box? What's his strategy?

Post the picture outside at the Schooner Bay Market:-X. Someone has to recognize his sandals, love his pants as well.

You might want to get in touch with the electrician and see if you can get a name. Hope he didn't get much.
