Yes, that's true too. But unless they know exactly where they are going and what they want in the house, it's not so easy. Plus some alarms have external speakers, and while most people ignore alarms, they usually look in the direction it is coming from.
I dispatch for the police department and most thieves run when the alarm goes off without taking anything. A few, who know what they want and where it is, do the smash and grab.
