Typically, burglars are looking for items to sell for money, not necessarily to keep for themselves. Below are the items that burglars are looking for the most:

  1. As long as pawn shops are still in business, burglars will always want jewelry so they can sell it. If your jewelry is stole, file a police report immediately. The police can retrieve a list of transactions and your items may be on there.
  2. One of the most common things that burglars are stealing are electronics. They are looking for newer items, but will usually pick up anything that can be sold.
  3. One of the biggest problems society has is abusing prescription drugs. If a burglar believes you may have some, they won’t think twice about breaking in and stealing them.

When it comes down to it, if an item can be sold, a burglar won’t have any issue stealing it. Prevent burglaries by installing a home security system. Contact Basco Security Inc. at 781-294-4166 or by filling out our contact form to receive a free estimate!
