It was just the other day that my sister told me this true-to-life story that happened to her and her family. A new neighbor had moved in across the street from their home, and had stopped by to introduce himself. My brother-in-law gave the person a cook's tour of their home.

The neighbor was appreciative for the visit, but had many questions regarding the home's security system and the classic car that my brother-in-law kept in his garage. My sister and her husband felt uneasy with this, but did not act upon their feelings.

A week later my sister heard that the new neighbor had been arrested and was remanded to the county jail. At this point, my sister authorized a county court records check from to put her mind at ease.
