Homeowner uses dummies to prevent break-ins

DETROIT -- A Detroit man is taking home security to the next level.

After several break-ins and an increasing homeowner’s insurance premium he decided to think outside the box and set up mannequins that he hopes will scare away the bad guys.

"This is my home, this is my castle. You may see them get past them but once you get past them you'll have to worry about the problem that's in the house and that's me," said the homeowner.

The homeowner says his hope is to make criminals think twice before breaking into his home.

He says the makeshift guards are actually CPR training dummies
