Enter the criminal: these dirt-bags look for a home with the driveway not plowed or walkway not shoveled and target it. What's ingenious is its not uncommon for these low life's to bring a shovel with them and pretend that they're doing a good deed: this eliminates suspicion. Neighbors and people passing by would think its a family member or hired hand shoveling the property. What they don't know is that after about five minutes of pretend work, the dirt-bag goes to the back of the house and bam! makes his entry. It's only weeks or months later when the homeowner comes home to find their valuables gone!
