Jefferson County sees a number of home invasions
Jefferson County has seen a number of home invasions recently from Port Arthur out to Nome.
Jefferson County Sheriff Mitch Woods told KFDM News his office hasn't noticed any trends that would show criminals are targeting the elderly more than anyone else.
Woods also said how it important it is for neighbors to watch out for each other.
KFDM News did check around to a few area hardware stores Tuesday to get a check on prices for home security systems. Costs are anywhere from $11.98 to $300. $11.98 will buy a person window detectors. For $29.99 a person can put up motion detectors that hang on doors and if you are looking to wire your home completely home alarm systems can run up to $300.
