  1. So the house was occupied by its residents, and Officer Pelayo claims that they should have had their alarm turned on? I don’t get it. I thought you turned the alarm on when you left the house. Maybe it’s some different kind of alarm that can tell the difference between intruders and residents. Can someone clarify for me?

    I hate to hear the victim blamed.

    • Officer Pelayo told the Buzz, “My recommendation is to have alarms set, especially at night. No where in my Alert is the victim being blame for anything. All safety recommendations are based on experience and knowledge of these type crimes and how they happen.”
