Not only are empty homes left vacant by foreclosure or suspended construction vulnerable to theft, thieves are now targeting current home construction job sites in increasing numbers.


This article from the New York Times profiles a family whose home was robbed and stripped of copper wiring and air-conditioning tubing. The family decided to camp out on their property to deter thieves and they wouldn’t even tell the contractors where the keys were hidden until they arrived on site.
