Burglars aren’t the type to break into your house, watch some of your Netflix, and eat your snacks—they’re focused on getting in and out, fast, before someone notices. Since their primary concerns are speed and efficiency, the typical burglar will ignore your TV in favor of small and portable items—or worse, your identity.

Small, Portable, and Pricey

Things like tablets, video game consoles, cell phones, e-readers, and tablets are hot commodities. Burglars can throw several of these electronics into a bag and they’ll walk out with hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars’ worth of your things, which will be sold and bought quickly.

Another target is jewelry, but the old “stash your jewels in sock in a drawer” trick is just that—old, meaning that burglars will find your sock drawer stash in no time. Also, prescription drugs like strong painkillers sell especially well, so burglars will likely raid your medicine cabinets for pills.

Documents and Identity

Cash, of course, is the best a burglar can find. Cash is untraceable and quickly spent, and it’s usually impossible for the original owner to recover once it is stolen. But, one of the most worrisome targets for burglars is your identity. A burglar can destroy, steal, or sell credit cards, social security cards, and birth certificates—which spells a long and tricky case of identity theft. For your safety and peace of mind, important documents should exist as electronic copies and be hidden especially well.
