Airbnb Serial Burglars Make Homeowners Stay In The Know | New
NASHVILLE (WSMV) – A Nashville Airbnb resort off 2nd Avenue South has been broken into seven times since January. Now other Airbnb owners are making sure that doesn’t happen to them.
Captured on camera, you see a man kicking a door more than half a dozen times. About a minute later, he comes out with a flat-screen TV on July 2.
“My first thoughts were ‘oh my God, is this our complex? “” said Jessica Joy Tammaro, owner of Airbnb properties in Nashville.
She owns a few Airbnb properties on 2nd Avenue South. It’s not too far from where thieves are targeting an Airbnb resort.
“I guess if they got away with it once, they’re going to keep trying,” Joy Tammaro said.
News4 showed Joy Tammaro the security camera videos from almost two weeks ago.
Scammers are familiar with the complex which has broken down seven times since January.
“After seeing what happened, I really want to be more up to date with what is going on at our properties,” said Joy Tammaro.
Near each door, it has a security camera and receives alerts when there is a loud noise.
“I feel like if someone knocked on a door, we would get an alert for it,” said Joy Tammaro.
On top of that, Metro police said good lighting and reinforced doors can help keep thieves away.
Hiring someone to monitor your property or check it yourself regularly are other options.
The thieves captured on video are still there.
Police said if you want to know more about ways to protect your home, contact your co-ordinating sergeant of the precinct community.
