We've read in the Register-Star about armed home invasions around the county, but a less threatening version of the home invasion, which never seems to get newspaper coverage, is apparently quite common here in Hudson.
A reader, who lives off Rope Alley near the Armory, shared this story with Gossips yesterday. Early one morning, when he was at home, someone entered through an unlocked back door, grabbed everything that looked to be of value in the kitchen and dining room, including the homeowner's wallet, and left before the intrusion was noticed. When the incident was reported to the police, they told the victim that this sort of thing "happens all the time." The reader told Gossips that had he known this happened "all the time," he would have been more vigilant, so Gossips is telling the story to caution people to be more security conscious and keep their doors locked.
