The most common type of burglary is one in which the suspect enters an open garage of the residence and takes something belonging to the homeowner. A burglary is defined as the unlawful entering of a dwelling or inhabitable structure with the intent to commit a crime. Burglaries are sometimes confused with robberies which occur when a suspect takes the property of another by threat or force. “Garage Burglaries” can be prevented by securing the overhead door and entry door while not in that immediate area. Also it is important for homeowners to remember to secure the garage at night when they retire for the evening.
