Sounds pretty detailed for a dream, are you sure it didn't actually happen?
You need to take out some theft insurance. Smith and Wesson has a good policy!

Hmmm... did it sound like it really happened but I just didn't want to come right out and say it?
I've got a dog I can loan ya.
Get a restraining order. If he robbed your house and is out of jail he shouldn't be near your home.
Offenders have to have a modicum of sense for restraining orders to be effective. Crackheads just out of jail visiting the neighbors while they aren't home probably don't care much about restraining orders.

True, it won't stop him showing up if he's going to. But it gives Lilliabeth the ability to call the cops and have him removed or dealt with even if he doesn't 'do' anything.. he's still in violation of the order.
What Deejay said!
I would make sure the (sparse) neighbors are all aware of his antics and that he is now out again. Then I would contrive for the crackhead to know that they all know. Paranoia is an easy lever on them...

I disagree. Paranoia takes a certain amount of self awareness. This guy is beyond that.
Theoretically, he needs to be "popped" "right in the face." That's what it takes sometimes.
Now, don't get mad at me. The guy has no business being at the "only house on a dead-end gravel road" if he's not a friend. I consider him lucky. In a lot of places, he would get much worse.
|I think hitting that man out there on that lonely road might have been against the law... |
Not if he swung first :)

I see your point, but I speak from horrific past experience myself here. Paranoia may be the ONLY thing the kernel of remaining "self" is able to manifest for any sustained period. Shame and guilt are long gone, but paranoia is there till the last clock cycle, so to speak. If the neighbors all know he's back, and he knows they know, it might just provoke him to move on to more anonymous territory.
Due diligence and good luck will see you through.
I feel sorry for you I really do.
My work means I come into contact with people in your situ on a reagular basis, I suggest to them to get a restraining order with the power of arrest, a big dog and CCTV camera the type that will enable you to use the film in court. A good alarm system wired into an instant response type service.
Clearly mark the boundry of your property with prickly bushes, plenty of thorns fence these in so theres no way he can claim he wandered onto your property in error.
Many people wont go near big dogs including druggies, German Shepards strike the fear of god into most people.
Let your neighbours know that he is out and if possible place photo style wanted posters advertising the fact that this known thief is about.
You forgot to include land mines, Claymores and trip wires, watch tower with
flood lights would also be a nice touch! :o) KG
I didnt forget, I just couldnt find a site that sells them....
