LONDONDERRY - It has been less than 24 hours after police said Ryan Noel broke into a home on Litchfield Road in Londonderry.
Neighbors are feeling uneasy.
“We definitely need to pump it up so last night we got on the phone, and we hired a security system to come over and check out how we can better lock up the house,” Katherine Lemear said.
Lemear is the mother of two young children, and she said she wants the best security system for her kids.
“It makes me frightened for my kids, and we’re home for the summer,” Lemear said.
“People are quite nervous,” Bob Phelps of Capital Alarm Systems said.
Phelps told NH1 News it wasn’t his first call to the neighborhood.
The same home on Litchfield Road was broken into about a year ago. Shortly after, the owner put up surveillance cameras, and that’s how the man believed to be Noel was identified.
One of the children "was messaging the father [on an iPad] so he was able to see what was going on,” said Detective Christopher Olson of Londonderry Police when asked how the children handled the home invasion.
Phelps urged parents to equip kids with what they need to feel safe at home.
“Wireless technology has helped technology these days," Phelps said. "Wireless panic buttons can be worn throughout the house."
“There were a lot of questions that needed to be answered last night, ‘What if someone comes into our house, who do we call, where do we go?’” Lemear said.
What advice do police have for protecting their own children?
“Don’t tell (strangers) that mom and dad aren’t home," Olson said. "Just stay safe and be vigilant, and watch out for suspicious people, and don’t answer the door for anybody."
