A wise man once said that the best way to prevent somebody from doing something is to get inside their head and think like them. This rings very true, especially when it come to burglars. If you can think like a burglar who wants to break into your house, you’ll be much better prepared in preventing him from succeeding. With this in mind, we’ve written this article in order to teach you how to break into your house.
Decide if You Should Burglarize Your House
Is your house nice? Does it look like you’re at home? Are there home security signs stuck in the ground or pasted on the windows? Can you see any nice electronics through the windows? Do you have a Doberman Pinscher lying around inside? These are the types of questions you’ll want to ask yourself before you break into your house.
Start With the Front Door
The first thing you should do is give your front door a good knock! That’s right, knock on your door to see if anybody is home. You’re hoping nobody is home, but if somebody answers it, pretend that you were “wondering if Bob Breakin was home” or some nonsense like that and then be on your way.
However, if nobody answers the door, you can peek into the windows to make sure grandma isn’t sitting in the rocking chair knitting. If you see somebody inside or if you see signs of activity, such as a running TV or music playing, you had better come back some other time. It’s not worth the risk and there are plenty of other houses to loot. However, if you’re sure nobody is home, you can begin your breakin process.
Try to Find an Easy Way In
There’s no reason to be conspicuous! So, before you pick your lock or smash in a window, go around and try to find an easy alternative way in. First off, check under your mat or a nearby pot to see if you hid a spare key. If you can’t find one, go around your house to see if you left any doors or windows unlocked. Next, test your garage door. These are often left unlocked.
If all Else Fails
If you've tried to find an easy way in but couldn’t, it’s time to force your way into the house. If you’ve been burglarizing for any amount of time (and we’ll pretend that you have) then you’ll know various means of picking a lock that will take you less than 60 seconds. Go ahead and pick your back door’s lock (so that nobody sees you) and proceed into your house with caution. If you had trouble picking your lock, just smash a window or a break down a door if you’re sure nobody will hear it.
What You Should Steal
Once you’re inside your house, you’ll want to be as quick as possible. Grab any of your laptops that you see lying around, take your TV screen and Xbox, and then head to the master bedroom. Where do you think you would “hide” your valuables? Check these places and grab whatever you find, then head on out. You’ve gathered enough loot and you don’t want to get caught inside your house!
Now that you’ve successfully burglarized your home, hopefully you will have a good idea of what you should do to keep your home more secure. Maybe, you could start by always locking your doors. You could keep your electronics out of sight when you leave your home. You should consider having a home security system installed to ward off burglars before they even approach.
