> and Mr. Smooth Criminal loots your house at leisure.

Some years ago a friend returned to her London house just as a man in a suit was climbing down the drainpipe! Mr. Smooth Criminal was a professional cat-burglar who obviously only stole pocketable items. He also avoided the heavily locked front door by not using it. the. The suit was a neat way to blend in, the police are looking for hoodies carrying a TV.

Rather than risk getting attacked she let him walk away, I don't think that he was caught.
