Surprisingly, according to a new study, 158,000 burglars went unpunished this year.

This year, 158,000 burglars went unpunished, according to a shocking analysis.

Two out of every three burglary investigations this year have been closed before the thief is apprehended, according to the Daily Express.

According to the analysis of this newspaper, 158,553 of the 236,418 investigations were closed without naming a suspect.

The true figure is likely to be even higher, as some of the largest forces, such as Lancashire and Avon and Somerset, have been unable to provide updates.

Bedfordshire Police has closed 82 percent of its 2,701 burglary investigations without identifying the perpetrator so far this year, according to data compiled by home security firm SEMCO.


A total of 78 percent of Lincolnshire Police’s 2,960 cases were closed without a suspect being identified.

Last night, victim advocacy groups demanded that burglaries be given top priority by chief constables.

Chiefs have stated that all offenses are taken seriously, despite being forced to “prioritize” crimes due to dwindling officer numbers and rising demand.

According to detectives, burglars frequently conceal their faces and wear gloves, and many homes lack security cameras.

According to police sources, officers must respond quickly to 999 calls in order to recover important evidence.

Victims may unintentionally destroy evidence that could have helped the police catch the thief if officers take too long to arrive.

Insiders claim, however, that the lack of bobbies on the beat is the primary reason officers take hours to arrive at some burgled homes.

According to defense attorneys, the longer the police take, the more likely the evidence will be tainted by people “walking all over the scene.”

Sources claim, however, that obtaining evidence quickly increases the chances of a successful prosecution.

They also mentioned that intelligence maps could be expanded, implying that officers would be stationed near hotspots.

Detectives can then link clues from a scene, such as motorbike noises, to other crimes, allowing officers to apprehend serial criminals and close multiple cases.

“A footprint could be the most important piece of evidence,” the source speculated.
