Simple Steps to Keep Burglars Away
Getting Inside the Mood of a Professional Thief
“Evil walked through my house and they were violating everything we hold dear… I’m sure that whoever took our things were not thinking of us, they were thinking of themselves…” said John Ossim, a victim.
A criminal only thinks of one thing – and that is himself or herself. It is statistically proven that a professional burglar has committed over a 100 crimes before they are caught. Criminals will burglarize a home to make easy money to support a bad habit, or drug habit. Depending on the individual, a criminal will burglarize multiple homes a day and usually during daytime (because people are home at night). Professional burglars will break in to homes that are more upscale because they are not so packed together (like a middle class suburban). They will not burglarize a home that is visible from multiple angles and will listen for any noise, like a TV or dog. A burglar will not break in to a vehicle or home if there is any resistance – why? – because they do not want to take a chance on making noise. The less conspicuous, the better.
