86 burglars talk about how they burgle.

Postby Cadfael » Tue Mar 28, 2017 3:23 pm

We asked 86 convicted burglars how they broke into homes

“NRA sticker on car bumper = Lots of guns to steal,” wrote one burglar.

3. Where did you look for hidden valuables?

Most burglars started by searching the master bedroom for valuables, then moved through the rest of the house.

“Everywhere! From the stove and freezer, to the fish tank and toilet tank, book shelves and in boxes of cereal,” said an inmate.
6. Did pets in the home, like a dog, make you think twice?

If a homeowner had a big, loud dog most burglars would stay away. Smaller dogs don’t seem to bother them.

“Dogs are a deal breaker for me,” said one inmate. “Big breeds, home protectors are the best to keep people out.”

That would explain who keeps eating all the Cheerios. It's the burglars!

Oh man, I don't have a fish tank. Or cereal. I'd rather know where they DON'T look, if you don't have a big dog.

I'm not sure exactly where they don't look, but they're pretty emphatic about searching every inch of the master bedroom so we can be pretty sure that's not it.

I think I'd go basement. Like Bruce Willis in Red. Dig a hole in the basement floor, hide stuff, and then fill it back up with cement. They probably won't find it there.

Put what stuff under the basement floor and cover it up?

Actually the basement seems like a good idea because if you come home, the burglar is stuck down there unless your basement has an outside door. He probably knows better than that.

You know now that you mention it I can't remember what he dug up. I remember him pounding on the floor with a sledge and then there was a dusty box but I don't remember what was in it. Some kinda spy stuff.

Well, you don't got to be Stonewall Jackson to know you don't want to fight in a basement!
