COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Duct taped and held at gun point. That's what Naples Police say happened to five people inside this luxury home. The police report says crooks walked right onto the property. Nearly 24 hours later, into the night, Police were still parked out front and watched the neighborhood closely.
"I think the first thing that comes to mind is Naples is not quite as safe as we like to think that it is."
WINK News wanted a professional opinion, so we brought experts from Statewide Security to the home. Vice President Jamie Bradley said the first thing everyone should get is an alarm system. At this point, we don't know if this house had one.
"You really need to put an investment into the alarm system and secondary would be cameras," said Bradley.
Richard Welty, the President of Statewide Security said motion lighting is another big tool. It tracks movement outside and alerts you inside.
"In this situation, they were in the pool last night, the lights weren't on, all of a sudden the lights all around the house would come on and it would alert them that someone would've breached the perimeter of the property and their on side," said Welty.
Welty said the more you put into your home, even something as simple as a sign, the more it can prevent a scary robbery like this from happening.
"I'm a huge supporter of notifying anyone that as they walk unto your property, they're under video surveillance and there also is an active working alarm system," said Bradley.
WINK News spoke with a relative of the family on the phone. He tells me the incident was very traumatic and the family is asking for privacy.
Those two crooks are still out there, if you have any information call Naples Police.
