Have you ever thought about whether your home security system or the “Beware of Dogs” sign really keeps thieves away?
So are we. As a result, the KGB investigation team wrote to 85 prisoners who were currently serving sentences in the Oregon corrections department for burglary. The prisoners were asked to answer 17 questions anonymously, detailing how they broke in, when the crime occurred and what they were looking for.
The following is a summary of the responses we received.
One. How do you usually break into a home or apartment?
Most prisoners come in from doors or windows that are not locked. Several thieves kicked the door open.
“I would rather kick the door than break the glass. A prisoner said: “Loud bangs are better than loud glass breaking, plus you run the risk of getting cut,t. “.
2.As soon as you enter, what is the first thing you want to steal?
Jewelry, electronics, cash and credit cards are all attractive to thieves. The prisoners also added collectibles and guns.
three. Where are you looking for hidden valuables?
Most thieves first look for valuables in the master bedroom and then move around the rest of the house.
“It’s everywhere! From stoves and refrigerators, to fish tanks and toilet tanks, bookshelves and boxed cereals,” says one prisoner.
3.What is your ideal target for burglary?
The thief didn’t want to be seen They look for houses with big fences, trees or bushes.
“Homes away from other houses, blind spots, older window frames, cheap wooden doors,” wrote one burglar.
Another prisoner wrote: “trees, bushes or bushes around the house, or very conservative and conservative neighbors.”
Another said, “a good home with a good car = a rich man.”
4.What can homeowners do to avoid theft?
The thieves advised the owners to make their property visible with good lighting and trimmed bushes and trees. You should know your neighbors and call the
police if you see anything suspicious.
“In my opinion, I think the homeowner should keep the TV or radio on all the time,” said one prisoner.
“Take a camera and make it visible!” Another wrote.
“Stick bars on doors and windows, warn, drive an extra car in the driveway, turn on lights, TV and radio when you go out,” wrote a questionnaire.
A burglar said, “there is an alarm at home. Know your neighbors so they can report suspicious people nearby.”.
Many of the prisoners who responded were remorseful. They don’t want homeowners to be victims.
“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help, and for giving me something that can really help others,” wrote the prisoner.
Another convicted burglar said: “I can never restore the sense of security I destroyed, but I can help prevent others from losing their sense of security.”.
Here are two letters and a questionnaire of convicted thieves. Names and blasphemies have been removed.
Security window is also a kind of anti-theft window, mainly through adding security glass, such as Double toughened glass, laminated glass, adding anti-theft bar, and adding anti-theft stainless steel screen mesh to increase the security of the window
