3 Thieves breaking into cars at 2am in Hickory Ridge Subdivision, Baton Rouge 70817. Open Carports make for easy access to thieves. Thieves shoot someone trying to stop them which causes a high speed chase and eventual capture. With crime like this increasing, it would be wise to buy a home with a garage, install 6′ fencing to prevent burglaries of autos and/or convert an open carport into an enclosed more secure parking area.

BATON ROUGE NEW HOME BUYING TIP:
Builders don’t do you any favors when they build homes with open non secure carports. It saves them money and makes for a higher profit margin.

Think before buying your next home.
