WATCH: KOB-TV story regarding "Criminal Survey"

 

From KOB-TV:

Burglars can be sly and out of homes in seconds. City statistics reveal there are more than 6,000 burglaries in Albuquerque a year, yet only 8 percent are solved.

To go inside a criminal’s mind, KOB went inside a prison. They also conducted a survey that they mailed to many convicted burglars. The results are very interesting:
