    South American Gangs Invading US Homes With Security Jammers

    Gangs from South America use security jammers to break in to expensive homes across country: police

    Gangs from South America are using security jammers to bypass security to break in to expensive homes across the country, police in Detroit said.

    DETROIT -- Gangs from South America are breaking into multi-million dollar homes across the country, including metro Detroit, WXYZ reported.
    Police said they are highly functional and well-trained.

    A police official described the crews, which are believed to consist of four to six people, as highly functional and well-trained.

    The thieves reportedly use a jammer to overcome wireless security systems that depend on WiFi to operate. The crews are all dressed in black, with backpacks, and gloves. They are non-confrontational and their goal is to get in and out of the homes quickly, police said.

    At least 30 to 40 homes have been hit since September in the Detroit area. Thieves have gotten away with cash, jewelry and expensive handbags within minutes of breaking in.

    Police departments in Michigan have formed a task force and urged home owners to have multiple layers of security.

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Brentwood police are warning residents to be aware of a criminal group from South America that’s burglarizing homes in the city again.
    Police said the group began operating in Middle Tennessee in June 2022, committing crimes in affluent areas with large homes, and they returned to burglarize homes in the city last week.
    Police added that this new wave of burglaries is following a similar pattern, with most break-ins occurring between 5-9 p.m., when homeowners are out to dinner or running errands after work.
    Ronnie Adcock lives in the Brenthaven neighborhood and says he’s taken extra steps to prevent a break-in.


    “You just have to prepare for the possibility that it’s going to happen to you,” Adcock said.
    He has an alarm system, flood lights, and motion sensors for his driveway.
    “It’s ongoing, just not only here in Brentwood, but also you know, across the mid-state,” Adcock said, about break-ins.
    “The BPD arrested several individuals connected to this group the last time they targeted the city, and now officers want residents to remain vigilant and limit opportunities for these criminals,” police said.




    Residents are encouraged to:
    Lock all doors and set home alarms.

    • Make sure home surveillance cameras are operating properly.
    • Keep lights on or use timers.
    • Avoid posting your location on social media.
    • Consider protective film on ground-level glass.
    • Bolt safes to the ground and avoid putting them in common locations, like closets.
    • Avoid storing large amounts of cash or jewelry in a single location.

    These groups enter subdivisions from adjoining neighborhoods, common areas, and tree lines, and enter a house through a rear door or window.


    “All Brentwood residents are encouraged to share this information with family and neighbors. To report suspicious activity, contact the BPD at 615-371-0160. For emergency assistance, always call 911,” police said.

    Immigrant Gangs Are Utilizing High-Tech To Break Into Expensive Homes


    Story by Kris Lippi • 5d
    MSN
    12/9/23



    In a story that seems like it came out of a crime movie, a concerning trend has emerged across the United States in recent months, as reported by ABC 7 Chicago. Gangs from South America are infiltrating multi-million dollar homes, leaving law enforcement and homeowners flabbergasted, grappling with what these highly functional and well-trained operations could mean for the safety of their families and their homes.

    The Intricate Techniques at Play

    These sophisticated gangs employ a range of tactics that set them apart from traditional burglary methods. One notable strategy involves the use of jammers, devices capable of disrupting signals crucial to Wi-Fi security systems. The video footage reveals a jammer in action, rendering security measures useless and providing these intruders with unrestricted access to affluent residences.
    Metro Detroit, known for its affluent neighborhoods, has become a focal point for these criminal operations. Since September alone, a staggering 30 to 40 homes have fallen victim to these intruders. Their modus operandi is swift and effective – enter, grab high-value items such as cash, jewelry, and expensive handbags, and exit within minutes. Law enforcement faces the challenge of combating these non-confrontational yet highly efficient crews.

Law enforcement faces the challenge of combating these non-confrontational yet highly efficient crews.


    The Call for Enhanced Home Security Measures

    In response to the escalating threat, police departments in Michigan have established a task force to address the surge in high-tech home invasions. Homeowners are being urged to implement multiple layers of security to safeguard their properties.
    We are left to wonder: In this era of constantly advancing technology, how can residents strike a balance between convenience and ensuring the safety of their homes?
    People in the comments are pointing out how no one is safe: “Because only expensive homes get broken into by technology jammers. A Black Female’s Business in CHICAGO got vandalized because of technology jammers. Remember that story, or have you quickly forgotten about it ABC7, Chicago?!!!!”
    A lot of commenters immediately got political, blaming the current president: “You get who & what you voted for!” and another ironically saying, “Thanks, Joe !”

    Amusingly, some manage to see a conspiracy theory in this, dismissing these events as being fabricated: “Calling BS on this Republican propaganda.”
    Finally, some manage to see something funny in this, with one commenter saying: “This is real life GTA 6.” Another added: “vote Biden you gon be hidin”


    Navigating the Intersection of Technology and Security

    As we grapple with the evolving landscape of criminal activities, these targeted home invasions underscore the pressing need for enhanced security measures. The intersection of technology and crime raises questions about the vulnerabilities of our increasingly interconnected homes.

    How can communities collaborate with law enforcement to stay one step ahead of these sophisticated gangs, and what role does technology play in both fortifying and compromising our sense of security?
    In an era where innovation and criminal tactics evolve hand in hand, finding answers to these questions becomes pivotal in safeguarding the sanctity of our homes and communities. As law enforcement adapts to the challenges posed by these highly functional gangs, homeowners are compelled to reassess and reinforce their security strategies.
    Several questions come to mind immediately. In the face of these targeted home invasions, what role should technology companies play in developing more robust security measures, and how can they collaborate with law enforcement to address emerging threats?
    As criminals leverage high-tech tools, does this mark a turning point in how we view home security, prompting a reassessment of traditional methods and the adoption of more advanced, proactive approaches?

    How can local and federal authorities enhance cooperation to combat these transnational gangs effectively, recognizing the borderless nature of modern criminal activities?
    The battle between criminals and those seeking to protect their homes unfolds in the shadows of advancing technology, demanding vigilance and collaboration from us all.

    'Crime tourism' bringing burglary crews from South America to affluent California communities



    BySid Garcia
    Friday, March 18, 2022





    Residents in one SoCal neighborhood say they're well aware of the South American burglary crews that have been targeting their community and the surrounding areas.
    KABC



    CAMARILLO, Calif. (KABC) -- Law enforcement agencies call it "crime tourism" -- groups of thieves from South America traveling to California to burglarize homes.
    Surveillance video released by Hillsborough police in Northern California shows a burglary crew believed to be from South America targeting a luxury home. It's just one in a series of crimes involving burglars from out of the country, hitting homes in affluent communities up and down the state.
    Earlier this month, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office arrested a four-man crew that robbed a home in a Camarillo neighborhood.
    "This is crime tourism. They're coming here for the purpose of targeting neighborhoods," said Cmdr. Erik Buschow with the Ventura Sheriff's Office. "Specifically vehicles, homes. Not violent crimes, but they're going after the big bucks."

    Police say the suspects followed him into an alley, pointed a gun at him and demanded his watch.



    In the case in Camarillo, sheriff's deputies spotted the getaway car and gave chase all the way into Los Angeles. LAPD helped out in arresting the suspects.
    Investigators say the crews will often wait for the homeowners to leave before moving in.
    "They target homes that back up to golf courses and open space," Buschow said. "And they'll literally stand in the bushes and watch and when people leave, sometimes it's a two-hour window, they'll go out to dinner or something like that - they'll go in and pounce."
    According to Ventura County sheriff's investigators, most of the "tourist burglary crews" are from Chile.
    They're able to easily obtain tourist visas to travel to California by applying online. Once they have a visa they land at LAX and start their crime spree.




    Residents in one Camarillo neighborhood say they're well aware of the South American burglary crews that have been targeting their community and the surrounding areas.
    "Several of my friends have been hit repeatedly," Camarillo resident John McGrath said. "And it's matter of sharing information and getting involved in community watch. Things like that really seem to help. And anytime you see something suspicious report it."
    According to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, last year alone, they handled 100 cases involving crews from South America.

    ‘Well-trained’ Latin American gangs organizing to break into luxury homes across America, sheriff warns

    December 8, 2023

    When opening your borders to the Third World, a country should expect to encounter Third World problems.
    Latin American crime rings are burglarizing homes across America and the “highly functional and well-trained” crooks are using high-tech devices to pull off the heists, according to WXYZ.
    Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said “transnational organized crime groups” from Colombia and Chile are behind a series of burglaries of luxury homes, using a jammer to get past wireless security systems that depend on WiFi to operate and stealing everything from jewelry to expensive clothing and handbags to gaming systems and cash, the ABC affiliate reported.


    “More and more the conclusion is pretty obvious – these are transnational gangs that are involved in this that come from South America looking to do burglaries and violate our communities, not just in Oakland County, but across America,” Bouchard said back in September.
    The sheriff announced this week the creation of a new task force, called the SEM CAB, or Southeast Michigan Collaborate Arrest Prosecute. The task force included local law enforcement agencies, U.S. Border Patrol, and the Secret Service.
    Bouchard said at a news conference that 30 to 40 homes in the county that includes Pontiac and Auburn Hills are believed to have been hit since September. Five robberies occurred this past weekend alone.


    He said the crews are mostly Chilean and they dressed in black, with backpacks, and gloves. They work in groups of four to six and are non-confrontational as they look to get in and out of homes quickly. According to the sheriff, the gangs look for high-end homes that can be approached from the back without being seen and even enter through second-story windows.
    Four people are in custody in the Oakland County Jail in connection with this ring and WXYZ reported that “others are in custody in other parts of the country.”
