If we look back to our recent past though the number of crime have decreased drastically as compare to back in late 80’s and early 90’s but as compared to mid 2000 the crime has increased significantly, whether it is home invasion, bank robbery or stolen car.
In early February, Agoura Hills – The Conejo Valley was struck with a seriers of 6 bank robberies in a month.
History of the series of robbery.

The last hesist took place at Charter Pacific Bank, Agoura Hills on March 2nd,which was a Thursday morning, the suspect was a mid age white man and was 6 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing a black jacket, with balding gray and blond hair and dark glasses and holding a black briefcase.
He passed on a note to a teller at Bank that said “This is a robbery. I have a gun. This is not a joke. Put the money in the briefcase now. This is no joke. Do it now.” In order to be safe and to avoid any unwanted problems for herself and the customers she complied and placed an undetermined amount of money in his bag. When the suspect left, she hit a silent alarm that activated a camera which helped in tracing the image of the suspect. Though the suspect has been identified , he is not been found to be related to other robberies in Agoura Hills, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks
It is really disturbing to see a series of crimes in a shot span of a month. Thanks to the Locksmith Services and the Bank that they had the right security system at the right time and really smart of the teller to give of the money in order to avoid any severe consequences while putting on the security cameras at the same time.
Though this happened in the bank, it could also happen at home while you are all by yourself. So a smart move is to calls in for a good Security System from a personalized and reliable Locksmith Service provider. Also it would be intelligent enough to follow some safety tips in order to avoid being a victim of such crime.
