We are going to get a lot of use out of this story. A 21 year old punk was found leeching off a family for over a week in Pennsylvania. Seems a women noticed some of the Christmas presents were missing, and after seeing a footprint up on the wall, put two & two together and realized someone was living in their attic.
Woman finds man living in her attic
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) – December 28, 2008 — An intruder slept undetected for days in a family’s attic, stealing food and clothing when they were away and keeping warm by wrapping himself with blankets and insulation, police said.
Stanley Carter, 21, of Trumann, Ark., surrendered Friday after he heard a police dog inside the home in Plains Township.
“When he came down from the attic, he was wearing my daughter’s pants and my sweat shirt and sneakers,” the homeowner, Stacy Ferrance, said. “From what I gather, he was helping himself to my home, eating my food and stealing my clothes.”
Police said Carter had been staying with Ferrance’s duplex neighbors, who were friends of his. But when they told him to leave, he apparently accessed the adjoining home’s shared attic through a trap door in a bedroom ceiling. The neighbors filed a missing person report on Dec. 19.
Ferrance said she sometimes heard noises but dismissed them, thinking they were caused by her three children. When household items started disappearing, she said, the family suspected someone had duplicate keys to the house.
Wow, that really takes a lot of balls to live like a parasite off someone, like a tick on a dog. How low can humanity sink? There was a story recently about a homeless women living in a man’s closet in Japan.
If you think some creep is leeching off of you, you can set up something simple like the Home Guard Image Capture Camera. The Home Guard camera looks like an innocent door chime or air freshener, yet it is a camera that detects when the image changes, and takes still images of anyone who steps into the Home Guard’s view. So it’s not really a motion detection camera, rather an image detection camera that takes pictures when an image changes, like when a person is in front of it.
The Home Guard has 2 modes, in large 640 x 480 HQ mode, it can store up to 4,000 images in with 128MB of internal memory. Or store up to 16,000 images in 320 x 240 mode.
To view the images, the Home Guard Image Capture Camera plays back images via a RCA cable to any TV or monitor. It is powered by (4) “AA” batteries or included AC adapter, so this unit is extremely portable and can instantly be relocated.
The Home Guard is a good hidden camera is great for catching someone doing something they should not be doing in your home or office. Since it works by changes in the picture and not motion, you can take pictures through glass and it will still work beautifully.
You can set the pictures to be taken at 1-60 second intervals. The unit will automatically add a time and date stamp to each picture. Now you can watch your home when you are not there, and play back the pictures at night.
The Home Guard is low priced and great for people on a budget. Find out more information on the The Home Guard Image Capture Camera, visit our website.
