Things your Burglar wont tell you.

January 18th, 2010 Posted in Uncategorized

THE NEW # 1 BURGLAR SECRET: I WAS ABLE TO LOOK AT YOUR “FACE BOOK” SITE AND READ
WHERE YOU TOLD A FRIEND THE EXACT DATES YOU WOULD BE OUT OF TOWN WHICH GAVE ME
A LOT OF TIME TO EMPTY YOUR HOUSE.
1. Of course I look familiar. I was here just last week cleaning your carpets, painting your shutters, or
delivering your new refrigerator.
2. Hey, thanks for letting me use the bathroom when I was working in your yard last week. While I
was in there, I unlatched the back window to make my return a little easier.
3. Love those flowers. That tells me you have taste … And taste means there are nice things inside.
Those yard toys your kids leave out always make me wonder what type of gaming system they have.
4. Yes, I really do look for newspapers piled up on the driveway. And I might leave a pizza flyer in
your front door to see how long it takes you to remove it.
5. If it snows while you’re out of town, get a neighbor to create car and foot tracks into the house.
Virgin drifts in the driveway are a dead giveaway.
6. If decorative glass is part of your front entrance, don’t let your alarm company install the control
pad where I can see if it’s set. That makes it too easy.
7. A good security company alarms the window over the sink. And the windows on the second floor,
which often access the master bedroom- and your jewelry. It’s not a bad idea to put motion detectors
up there too.
8. It’s raining, you’re fumbling with your umbrella, and you forget to lock your door-understandable.
But understand this: I don’t take a day off because of bad weather.
9. I always knock first. If you answer, I’ll ask for directions somewhere or offer to clean your gutters.
(Don’t take me up on it.)
10. Do you really think I won’t look in your sock drawer? I always check dresser drawers, the bedside
table, and the medicine cabinet.
11. Here’s a helpful hint: I almost never go into kids’ rooms.
12. You’re right: I won’t have enough time to break into that safe where you keep your valuables. But
if it’s not bolted down, I’ll take it with me.
13. A loud TV or radio can be a better deterrent than the best alarm system. If you’re reluctant to
leave your TV on while you’re out of town, you can buy a $35 device that works on a timer and
simulates the flickering glow of a real television. (Find it at faketv.com
