Having learned more about burglars than I ever wanted to know, here is a public service announcement.
If there are any contractors, including public utilities’ contractors, working near your house or apartment, your odds of being burglarized have increased and sometimes the odds have significantly increased. Often those people case your goings and comings and alert their co-conspirators if they think they have a good chance of stealing from you. Those contractors will act as the lookout while the burglary is happening.
And NEVER post on social networks that you are going on vacation. You would also be well served to have some costume jewelry in plain sight. I don’t know where the best place would be for you to hide your real jewelry, but you need to find that place and use it. You should also consider getting a burglar alarm or at least get some of those signs showing that you have an alarm system.
When that burglary happened at my house I sent an email to all personnel at our law firm to let them know how serious burglaries have become in the US. I live in what I thought was a very safe neighborhood (and I still think that) and I wanted our personnel to know that so-called safe neighborhoods are not immune to burglars. After I sent out that email I was stunned at how many folks said they had been burglarized or had a neighbor that had been burglarized.
The point of this fairly lengthy post is you really need to know that burglaries are a serious problem in the US and you need to do something to reduce your chances of getting hit by this crime.
I hope this helps.
