A Home Office research team in Britain conducted a burglary crime study to determine what criminals are most likely to steal. The results showed which items were most frequently taken from residential burglaries.
Purses, wallets and cash were stolen most often. In 46% percent of all burglaries, these were the items taken. The second most stolen items are electronics such as cameras, MP3 players and DVD players. Burglars stole these items 36% of the time.
Computers and computer equipment was the next most popular and the choice of 29% of burglars. Jewellery and cellular phones came next, having been stolen in 23% and 19% of robberies.
Most criminals look for an empty home and they do not want to be noticed when they strike. This is why most of their attacks happen during the week or after it’s dark.
Excellent ways to stop burglars from robbing your home include installing motion-activated lights outside and placing security cameras in strategic locations.
This will show potential burglars that they will be noticed if they attempt to break into your home and cause them to think twice before attempting to do so.
