What Burglars Look For

Most TV and movies show burglaries happening at night but in fact, most burglaries take place in the afternoon. So, while you’re out enjoying Main Street, Downtown, some of the best seafood around, Choptank River Lighthouse, Hyatt Chesapeake, or rar, bad guys might be helping themselves.

Social media is so tempting, but burglars have been known to monitor social for targets. Be careful about posting that you’re out of town for long periods of time.
