LL Cool J
came face-to-face with a burglary suspect in his home, and took the guy down with his own hands early this morning ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources ... the suspect entered LL's Los Angeles area house around 2AM, but unfortunately for him the actor/rapper/badass was home.

We're told LL heard some commotion downstairs, went to check it out ... and found the intruder.

Sources say the intruder had tripped LL's alarm system, but the "NCIS Los Angeles" star -- who is a physical beast -- decided to go hand-to-hand combat on the dude ... and managed to detain him until LAPD arrived a few minutes later to make the arrest.

We're told LL is okay, but the suspect -- who will be booked for burglary -- suffered a few bruises.

Mama said knock you out.

Home Invasions are dramatically on the rise. In fact, the FBI says that a home is invaded every 12 seconds by someone going right through the front or back door. 85% of home intruders enter through a door. Enhancing the door security on your home is one of the most essential components of home security. You must reinforce all of your exterior entry doors. Most often, it's the door jamb that breaks. Door jamb reinforcement is the most effective, least expensive thing you can do to protect your home. You can easily reinforce your doors with a product like the Door Security Pro - http://www.DoorSecurityPro.com . It's inexpensive, easy to install, and it provides a lifetime of protection.

Because of the economy many employers are now hiring work from home employees. This helps the employer save money on the overhead costs associated with employees. It has never been a better time to work from home than now.

Learning how to work from home has never been easier. The holiday season is approaching and work from home employers are now hiring agents. The truth about working from home is that it is not a get rich quick scheme. The people that work from home have real jobs and hold contracts with companies. I know this because I’ve been working from home for over ten years and have been showing people how to obtain work from home jobs. If this book isn’t for you, I am sure a friend or family member can benefit from it.

I have put everything you need to know about working from home, the companies that hire work from home employees and why working from home is currently in demand in the new book “Job’s For Today’s Economy”, the work from home manual.
