I am continually impressed, in this day and age of psychotic home invasion murders, how there are people who do not lock their doors and windows. One of the key methods of deterring a burglar is delay: The longer it takes to enter a premises, the more likely they figure they'll be detected, and, thus, they pass on to another target. With unlocked doors and/or windows, you might as well post a "Break in Here" sign on your roof. And it goes without saying that, for their own personal safety, the homeowner lock things up when the lives of family are at risk. Why this boy did this, I'll never know. He (and his parents) has thoroughly messed up his life for years to come.

He's lucky someone didn't wake up and bash his head in with a baseball bat - or worse!

Kudos to the Southington Police Department. There is no room for activity like this in Southington or any other town. Thank you to all who had a hand in solving this case and making Southington a better place.

What a dumb remark. They're just as lucky they didn't wake up to a guy standing over them with a hand gun -- a more likely occurrence.
