In the city of St. Charles, the police are investigating a burglarized grocery store. The La Huerta Supermarket was robbed an estimated amount of $27,000, according to the police reports. The police drove over to the crime scene after the alarm was triggered. The burglary took place on July 29th where the police found the back door of the store open and the grocery store ransacked.
Inside the store two safes were completely pried open and emptied out. One of the safes contained approximately $25,000 in cash and checks and the second safe held about $2,000. The owner of the store told the police that most of the money came from transfer services that the business offers. The burglars were able to get inside and rob the store without being caught by creating a hole at the top of the roof. The police found three different sets of footprints on the roof. The owner even mentioned that maybe one of the burglars tried to unplug the camera system, but failed.
If you are a business owner, stories like this could be a complete nightmare, especially for small businesses. You have profits that you accumulated throughout the years only to find out all your hard work and hard earned profits disappear in a matter of minutes. We can’t assume that the owners did not prepare for the worse or invested in high quality safes, but we can say that it didn’t take long for the burglars to gain access. The only thing we can suggest is to make sure you invest in the best quality and highest security to protect your valuables. This doesn’t just go for business owners, but even for homeowners who need to protect their precious belongings from theft.
As a business owner, you should always take extra measures to protect your valuables and cash. You should never keep your guard down, especially when it comes to protecting your money. The best safes are built with the high strength and durable steel to withstand physical attacks and forced attempts. High security safes defend against break-in attempts and attempts at prying it open. High quality safes have the necessary security features such as non-removable hinges and thick steel diameter locking bolts that resist any attempts at getting inside. If you need to organize your cash flow and make quick deposits with money bags, envelopes and checks then investing in depository safes are a necessity. However, if you want even more protection and higher security from theft, then you need to invest in a high security safe.
The burglary incident above shows that the burglars easily gained access just by prying it open and emptying all the contents. It seems like the safe wasn’t built with the necessary strength and security features that most safes should have. If you’re a business owner and are storing that amount of cash, then you know you need the best safe out there, not a dull, plastic safe that could be broken into in a matter of seconds. Always go with the quality product, one that you can be confident about. Don’t rely on cheap safes just because the price is right. Remember, you get what you paid for, and sometimes it can come back to haunt you in the end. Stick to an all-steel security safe that has all the primary and standard features that prevent theft. Most safes also come with an electronic lock that enhances your security to your safe, frustrating any burglar attempting to crack it open.
Do you own your own business? Do you have to manage and handle cash everyday? Well the perfect solution to organizing and keeping all your profits safe and secure is to invest in a depository safe. MESA has been the leader in the safe industry since 1981. Our bread and butter have been the depository safe. We have been improving and fine tuning its features since the growth of the company. While refining the deposit safe for perfection, it lead us to create our own full line of high security safes, which are used for a variety of different applications. Our main focus is to provide the best possible high security safe for every type of use to provide maximum protection, excellent security and long lasting durability.
Despite the downturn of the economy in recent years, we know that many business owners are standing strong, hoping that it will get better soon. There’s no room for error or losing any hard-earned profits from theft, burglary, mishandling of cash and disorganization. It’s time that you have some type of systematic organization of your cash and other valuables. In order to increase profits, minimize budgets and prevent losses due to lack of management, the deposit safes will assist and relieve all your hassles and troubles.
One of our most popular models in our depository safe line is the MFL2014. MESA’s MFL2014 provides just the right amount of storage space to keep your cash. It features a front-loading mailbox style deposit door to quickly make deposits into the safe. The convenience of the drop box feature allows you to load your cash, checks, receipts, envelopes and other types of currency or documentation very easily without having to open up the safe.
What about thieves or intruders forcing their way inside through the deposit door? Our money safes feature an anti-fish baffle that prevents internal theft through the deposit door. This feature thwarts off the thief from stealing any items inside the safe. Another security feature the MFL2014 contains is a high security lock to prevent theft and unauthorized users from gaining access. With the MFL2014 you have different lock options available to you. You can choose a combination dial lock and enter the correct combination to unlock the safe or you can choose a dual-keyed lock. A dual-keyed lock does not need a combination or code to be entered, but must have two security keys for both key slots in order to open up the safe. However, we recommend choosing the electronic lock. To gain access into the safe a keypad code needs to be entered. If the code is entered incorrectly multiple times then the electronic lock will go into a keypad lockout penalty. This prevents any further codes to be entered adding even more security to your safe.
What else makes the depository safe such a popular item? Many people take for granted its basic features that most safes should have. First and foremost, none of our safes are built from plastic or any other type of cheap material. Our safes are built strong with high quality steel construction to guarantee resilience and sturdiness that can withstand physical attacks from forced attempts. Other security features are thick diameter solid steel live locking bolts. Even when the electronic lock is removed and the thief is prying its way into the safe with a crowbar, the steel bolts ensure that the doors are tightly shut and prevent entry.
