Re-posting something I found in the musky fishing forum. This is a direct cut and paste of the thread:

Wanted to let everyone know about the vandals that are breaking into cabins on Lake Vermillion for the last few weeks. I talked to the Breitung police and we are not the first ones to report a break in, I guess they are breaking in to destroy other peoples property including breaking windows and trashing cabins. The vandals stole a couple vintage Hamms beer cooler/chair and some small hand tools from us after breaking a window to get in and kicking the chimney off our wood burning stove. If anyone has any information please call the Breitung police department.

If I catch them in the act they will get more than just a slap on the wrist!

Maybe we need a neighborhood watch program - get a couple volunteers per night to boat around and look for these vandals. I can't think of a better way to spend ones time

They'll get caught eventually, if they keep it up. There's too many trail cams and in-house surveillance systems out there.

You can set up a trail-cam like system in your cabin for about 30 dollars - cleverly disguised as a wall clock or other innocuous item. And real-time video monitoring services, using the AT&T cellular networks, are now under $50 dollars/month.

So how do you get hooked up with the ATT service? Do you go through ATT or an alarm company. Does anyone have experience with the alarm companies up here? Thanks!

If you have internet in the cabin DSL or whatever, there are a variety of webcams and stuff that you can connect to without a fee. A motion detector would be useful along with the webcam.

Some cameras have motion detection built in. they even send you a burst of pictures to your email when motion is detected via IR or regular image. Some even allow you to remote into the camera to see live feed. The one I have runs about $100 and connects via Wifi and DSL.

Front Point Security is considered by most to the best cellular-only security service in the United States. As long as you have access to the AT&T network (almost all cellular security systems are built on the GSM cell technology standard, and only AT&T/T-Mobile use this technology), they sell a do it yourself install kit that ties into the AT&T cell network and can be monitored from their facilities. Their top-line product, at $49 /month, gives you real time video access from cell phones, iPads, or web browsers.

I haven't installed for myself, but i helped a friend install the DIY kit on a cabin near Grand Marais. Its pretty slick, installed in under an hour. The video is kinda boring, though, nothing ever happens there smile

Have there been any recent reports of Vandals? I was in the Cook hardware store a week or so ago, and I overheard someone saying that something was stolen off their boat.
