Police say burglaries are a constant problem in the Capitol City and they always spike up as we head into the holidays.
But what time of day are you most likely to be a victim? One person we talked to knows all too well.
"It just baffled me, it was a shock," said 23-year-old Jennings Morgan.
When he nestled into this rental home in Hillcrest as a student of the law, he didn't think he'd become the victim of crime.
"We live on a busy street, it's broad daylight, who would have thought someone could have kicked in a heavy duty door like this," Morgan said.
He had just left home around 11:30 Tuesday morning. By 12:30, he had a call from his roommate: they'd been robbed.
"They got the TV here, then started to go back here and went into my roommates room," said Morgan.
Inside, drawers had been riffled through, a laptop, a flat-screen, an X-Box, video games, a pillowcase filled with goods--all gone.
"These burglars are desperate and they will do whatever it takes to get what they want," Morgan said.
The guys had taken normal precautions, they'd even dead bolted their front door. But it simply didn't matter. The burglars were so brazen, they literally ripped parts of the frame right off.
"It's sickening," Morgan said.
Morgan was shocked by how bold the burglars were, busting in during the day.
But police say Morgan's case is far from rare.
"Burglaries during the work day are common," said Sgt. Cassandra Davis with Little Rock Police.
Sgt. Davis says the most common time for home break-ins are between 7 and 10 in the morning---just after a homeowner leaves for work.
"Homeowner usually returns around 4 or 5 and realizes the home had been burglarized," she said.
Sgt. Davis says sometimes burglars will watch you leave--or even just take the chance you are gone.
"These things can be replaced but the fact these people came in, you just feel violated."
Morgan will take extra precautions now and help police parts of his neighborhood.
To others he says simply: beware of burglars.
"You don't think it can happen, until it happens to you," Morgan said.
Police say the more difficult it is for a burglar, the better.
