In 2012 the number of burglaries in France reached 352,000; actually housebreaking happens every 90 seconds. According to statistics, the number of burglaries increased by 8.5% in 2012, according to portal The Connexion.

Burglars love to get into expensive real estate in France and steal jewelry and gold, which can be easily sold on the black market, said criminologist Christophe Soullez. Recently, criminals are actively looking for their future victims on social networks. The police advised not to post statuses on social networks about the departure and post pictures from vacation, while you are not home.
