Burglar's robbery to-do list revealed by police

275x250.jpg Police in Manchester have revealed a burglar’s to-do list of potential targets after it was found lying in the street following a burglary.

Entitled "Lined Up Grafts", the handwritten note details keys to cars which have been left on view, bikes left insecure and accessible to everyone as well as homes where items have been left on view.

The thief also wrote the tools needed to carry out each job including hammers, screwdrivers and even a coat hanger.

While it's hoped the would-be burglar doesn't have a good memory, the fact we've just published his list probably doesn't help matters.
275x250.jpg Police Constable Andy Pickering for Greater Manchester Police said: "Thieves steal all year round but get particularly busy during the Christmas and New Year period when homes and cars are filled with presents making the items too good to resist for any would-be thief.

"This to-do list gives an insight on how thieves identify their targets and should serve as a reminder to householders on how to protect themselves from falling victim to crime.

"While most thieves are opportunistic there are some who are more organised and will systematically search out the weaknesses in your neighbourhood for the easiest homes, cars, pedal bikes or other valuables on your property to target and steal."
