There are sophisticated ways to break into a home, steal a car, rip off a bicycle. But only about 10% of thieves are professional. Most homes that are broken into are accessed through an unlocked door or window. Most stolen cars had the keys in the ignition. An item left in the open is easier to take than the item locked up safe.
There is no such thing as “100% safe” or “theft proof.” The fact is, if someone wants it, they will take it.

Here are five everyday items that can be put to criminal use.
