We asked 86 burglars how they broke into homes.
WHAT BURGLARS SAID WERE THE BIGGEST DETERRENTS, WHAT DIDN’T STOP THEM AND HOW YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR HOME.
By Kyle Iboshi, KGW News, Portland, Ore.
Do you ever wonder whether your home security system or “Beware of Dog” sign actually keeps burglars away?
We did too. So KGW’s investigative team sent letters to 86 inmates currently serving time for burglary in the Oregon Department of Corrections. The inmates were asked to respond anonymously to 17 questions detailing how they broke in, when the crime occurred and what they were looking for.
What we learned could help you keep your home safe from burglaries.
