Analysis of crime trends for break-ins
Sneak-in thefts also play an important role in the crime trend, as they are often more difficult to detect than break-ins. Break-in theft and sneak-in theft are two different kinds of burglary. In the case of a break-in theft, the perpetrator breaks into the victim’s house or property to steal items. Whereas sneak-in theft happens when a perpetrator enters the victim’s house or property through an unlocked window and steals items without being noticed.
