Burglaries are happening frequently all over Columbus, Ohio. They seem to be going straight for the jewelry. If you have valuable jewelry and its not scheduled on your homeowners policy then you need to contact your agent immediately. Insurance companies have limits for jewelry that is not scheduled and it’s typically around a couple thousand dollars. Most homeowners have more jewelry then that.
Also, a huge amount of these burglaries occur when doors have been left unlocked. Remember to lock your doors when you leave; no matter what neighborhood you live in. Often these burglars will call the home phone before entering to see if anyone is home. These burglaries seem to go up in the summer because they can fit in with the door to door salesmen. In conclusion, please schedule your jewelry before someone strikes your house and remember to keep your doors locked.
