It Takes a Thief
Does anyone else watch a show on Discovery called It Takes a Thief? I love this show. I think it is such a great idea. For those who haven’t seen it, these two guys go around and pick out houses that would make a good B&E target. The producers talk to the homeowners and convince them to let them wire the house with cameras for the show. When the homeowners aren’t expecting it, the one guy breaks in to take all their shit and trash the house. He’s in and out in usually 5-10 minutes. Then they get to watch the guy in their house/business to get a reality check. Then after they tally up the loot, they give it back to the owners. Then they renovate the house to make it more secure. I like watching it to get ideas for my own home security.
The other day, they targeted Mountain Lakes (NY or NJ?) Police Department. Yup the PD! They stole all kinds of shit including guns and ammo. They ended up getting greedy and got stopped in the driveway on the way out, but none the less would have succeeded. If this were a real B&E of the PD, it would have been ugly, no doubt ending up in a shootout.
It is on M-F at 1800. Check it out. Some episodes are better than others. But over all I give it a 10/10.
yeah, thats a pretty good show.
Seen it. It truly is an awesome show. It also give home owners an idea about what truly goes on during a B&E.
You're right. When I first saw the show last season it surprised me how quickly they could clean out a house with only one or two guys. In like 8 minutes, a whole house pillaged and trashed. It really is an eye opener for those involved.

I love the show. every chance I get I watch! It has given me good tips for my own home
Great show, and it's amazing the gadgets they use beyond what you expect.
Using motion detector sprinklers usually used to deter animals is brilliant!
Discovery Channel rocks!
I've found myself watching this show quite often recently. I think it's great! The way they break into some of the homes is really unique sometimes. Furthermore, the security equiptment they use is really cool also. Yesterday I watched them install some real state-of-the-art stuff in this house that sits along a golfcourse, even in a gated community. The hooked the family up with some really nice stuff, and even a badass security system for the dad's new BMW!
