How do burglars choose their next victim?
Amateur burglars are more likely to act on impulse, draw attention and leave evidence.
But seasoned professionals with a lot of break-ins under their belt understand the value of staking out a property before making a move. This way, with the pros and cons to hand, they can figure out the best time to strike. And who to target.
An experienced thief may walk past your home at the same time every day for a week to determine whether your daily absence is a recurring pattern – just to be safe.
Often he’ll walk up and down the street and try all the front doors.
He may look in the windows when the lights are on but the curtains are open. He’s got pretty clever at spotting iPads, wireless sound systems and games consoles.
If a burglar has a row of three houses, which one is he going to try first? The one with the brand spanking new alarm system, the one with the old bellbox that goes off every few days or the one without an alarm system at all?
