Burglars are most often categorised as opportunistic thieves.
They seek out any opening that they can take advantage of – specifically doors and windows that are left open or unlocked or are easy to force.
Anything of value that they might spot through a window will only encourage them.
Derbyshire Police offer helpful information for householders called Seven facts about residential burglary.
