So I get home and the power is off.  Dead.  The main switch to the house is off.  So turn it back on.

Checking everything out, I hear a banging.  Most unusual.  Eventually found it.  The side gate.

Break in
Break in
So some buttplug has come along and totally ripped off the latch to the side gate, padlock and all.  I couldn't find it anywhere around the yard (unless they hid it well).  

My working theory is they broke in to go around the back, saw the alarm in the garage, turned off the power, found the alarm was still on (it has backup batteries) and decided not to bother.  Because there was no evidence of any forced entry anywhere.

Makes me a bit scared to leave the house :(

When I was growing up we had a few instances of someone trying to find a way to break in. Thankfully they never got in, but do understand how unsettling it is! Glad all is well.

oh my - that IS scary! But at least the alarm hopefully was just the deterrant that you had hoped for :(
