This happened to a friend of ours just an hour’s drive from Liberty’s manufacturing and shipping complex in Payson, Utah.
In mid June, a retired husband and wife were at home in the middle of the day. He was out weeding the garden on the side of the house. She was in the basement cleaning up. It was routine for both of them—a routine day, a routine chore, a routine expectation.
Unknown to either of them, a stranger had been watching from nearby. Seeing his chance he quickly made his move.
The burglar entered an unlocked side door leading to the kitchen. There he found the wife’s purse on the counter. He took out her credit cards and car keys, and hurried to the car parked on the driveway. He climbed in, started the engine, and drove away.
The husband and wife had no idea a felony crime had been committed against them. It was the middle of the day, and with the car gone she thought he had left for an errand, and he thought the same of her. It wasn’t until an hour later when they found each other in the kitchen with her purse turned upside down that the shock and gut-wrenching realization of what had just happened began to piece together.
Police were called, the process of reporting and recovery was started, but too much time had passed to prevent the additional loss that came from the stolen cards. Today, they are still picking up the pieces and trying to mend. However, the good news is that their insurance is handling the car, charges on their cards are being reversed, and a Liberty safe was protecting the most valuable items of all, next to the family members themselves.
The armored walls of a locked Liberty safe prevented bad from becoming worse, and “things replaceable” from being inflated to include “things lost forever.” Had they not been home would the burglar have cased out the rest of the house? If so, he would have hit a dead end with a Liberty safe.
That’s why Liberty tells its customers that a home safe can provide a peace of mind like no other. With SafElert constantly on guard, even a Liberty safe has that double-duty security at work. Any attempt to open the safe door, move it, or if a fire breaks out, that internal wireless alert system instantly sends a text and email message to your choice of cell phones and email accounts, with a heads up that something suspicious is happening at home.
That’s the promise of Liberty: peace of mind and a life-time warranty to back it up—especially when a beautiful June day is stealthily disrupted by a callous criminal who preys on unsuspecting people like our good friends who live just an hour’s drive from Liberty.
Liberty Safe—the best-built safes on the planet.
