Malibu's tool theft epidemic

tool chest

A friend of mine, who inspects houses as they're being built, has been hearing from contractors on the sites she visits that thieves are breaking into locked sheds and cleaning them out, making off with tens of thousands of dollars worth of hand tools and power tools and construction materials.

Some contractors have hired guards, others are using dogs. Here's an inspired solution I came across on one of my walks -- the tempting tool chest held safely out of reach.

Next entry: Malibu Pie Festival tomorrow!
