Dr. Richard Ullman says he's not ever had a major problem like this and won't wait for it to happen again.

"We're getting a burglar door on the back, to stop -- actually, what we have now, is wood paneling where the locks go down, and that's how they were able to break it down," said Dr. Ullman. "We're going to put a burglar door with metal."
