A good friend experienced a house burglary some time ago in which, after the perpetrators got their jewelry, coin collection, elaborate 35 MM camera, etc., they broke a couple of doors on a teakwood piece of furniture, apparently climbing to see what might be in the vases on top of it, they pulled the cushions off of the couch, they went through the freezer, they pulled pictures off the wall, opened the oven door, overturned tables and chairs - all common uncommon hiding places. They stuck with small, high value items - left the TV and VCR. Apparently, they had watched some of the same TV shows many have.


I assume they didn't have an alarm sounding.

Had there been some loud alarm going off, they never would have taken all that time.



That would be true - They had a monitored alarm system installed after the burglary - Kindof like locking the barn door after the horse has left.
