(KTVI) - Summertime can be a great time for families to enjoy the weather, and a good opportunity for burglars.

David Nance is with the St. Louis family-owned SABRE company. He helps law enforcement officers and the public learn more about personal safety.

He tells FOX2's Randi Naughton what times are the most common for burglars to hist your home, what thieves are looking for, what is the most-preferred point of entry into your home, and affordable tools to protect your home and apartment that do not come with monthly fees.
