Dear victim, it was your fault I raided you, writes burglar
Thursday 24 November 2011
A teenage burglar wrote to his victim, blaming the householder for the crime and saying that he felt no remorse, police have said.
West Yorkshire Police released the letter in a bid to warn people about the dangers of leaving their properties vulnerable to intruders.
The force has not named the victim, who lives in Leeds, or the burglar, who was 16 at the time and was given a 12-month intensive supervision and surveillance plan by magistrates.
The letter says: "To be honest I'm not bothered or sorry about the fact I burgled your house."
The letter then notes a number of "mistakes" the householder made, including leaving curtains and a window open.
