2. Weird cars on the street
In most cases, a burglar will drive a vehicle that is either their own, belongs to a family member, or has been stolen in order to get a feel for the neighborhood before choosing a property to break into.
If you see a vehicle parked near your house (especially for a few days in a row or a couple of days per week) and you know it doesn’t belong to anybody in the neighborhood, it might be a sign that someone is keeping an eye on you and your property.
Be careful if you notice any repeated actions, and proceed with caution if you see someone seated inside. The best way to deal with this is to write down the license plate and call the police ASAP.
