There’s no such thing as a free lunch
We’d like the emphasize that burglars are a lot more patient than us. They’ll bide their time for weeks, scouting a neighborhood and looking for the easiest prey. This guy learned from a classmate of one highly intricate burglar trick.
First, the burglar would steal something from the backyard, like a BBQ grill pit. They’d leave a note, claiming that a neighbor needed to borrow it immediately. They’d leave a pair of game tickets for the trouble. While the homeowner was out enjoying the game, the burglar would come back and finish what he started. Not very Oceans-11-y, but it definitely takes a lot of planning to pull off.
