Residential burglaries only occur at night

Myth: Residential burglaries only occur at night

Fact: Movies and advertisments commonly portray burglaries as occuring in the dead of night; the darkness providing the burglar with a lesser chance of being detected. Subsequently, a common myth has developed over the years that your home is most likely to be burgled at night or in the early hours of the morning. Although a large number of burglaries do occur during the evenings and early mornings, an astounding number of homes are broken into in broad daylight. For the burglar, a daytime burglary lessens his chances of coming into contact with the residents during his burglary.
