    "Convicted burglar, offers crime prevention tips to avoid burglary"


    25 November 2011 A prolific burglar who wrote to police offering an insight into what deterred him from targeting particular properties has been jailed for five years.

    The Burglar wrote a letter to officers prior to his sentencing at Woolwich Crown Court on 23 November, explaining what features on a property would stop him from targeting it for burglary.

    "It speaks volumes really and should make us all ask ourselves how secure our homes are"

    In his letter, he said he would not select a property with any of the following:


    ◦ A well lit premises
    ◦ The presence of a dog
    ◦ Anti-climbing paint on drainpipes, balconies etc..
    ◦ Barrier fencing above garden gates and perimeter walls
    ◦ Motion sensor lighting
    ◦ "Beware of dog" stickers
    ◦ Alarm warning stickers
    ◦ Pebbles/shingle near rear patio doors
    ◦ CCTV camera (dummy or live)
    ◦ Pad sensors behind doors/windows
    ◦ 'Switch house alarms on'
