Five More Things Your Friendly Burglar Wants to Tell You

The Los Angeles Police Department is responding to the rise in burglaries in the West Valley by sending weekly alerts that attempt to tell people how burglars think.

These Tips are issued by the Los Angeles Police Department to provide insight into how burglars operate. The LAPD calls these tips: Five more things your friendly burglar wants to tell you.

1.If you don't answer when I knock, I'll try the door. Occasionally, I hit the jackpot and walk right in.

2. If I am ambitious enough to invade your home while you are there – you may want to consider “answering” my door knock through the door – “Hello – who are you – no, I don’t want any – go away or I’ll call the police” And I will go away. So DO NOT OPEN IT! But if I hear your voice speaking with me – I will move on to another home that may let me in!

3. Maybe I will work with someone claiming to sell magazine subscriptions – I always know when someone is home or not – by knocking on the door!

4. I look to see if your trash cans are put out on trash day – or I’ll look to see if anyone has taken in the trash cans by nightfall – a dead giveaway that no one is home!

5. Those car keys you left in the ignition or on the hook in the garage – allows me to drive away from your house in luxury with your property – and your car.
