Inside the Mind of a Thief | Burglar Confessions

  • Published 2 years ago

For more than 20 years Michael Shayne Durden, burglarized more than thousands of homes in Dallas and Collin countries. After going in prison, Michael decided to help homeowners avoid exactly what he was doing.

Durden became famous when he took to YouTube to educate homeowners how to prevent burglaries. Some of his fellow inmates have also heard about his newfound fame.

He says that he doesn’t regret going public. Instead, he says that he regrets the pain he has caused his victims, remorse which he said comes as which he said comes as the result of getting sober in jail.

And that is the reason he is teaching people to protect themselves.

And according to Durden, the best way to protect yourself is to get inside the mind of a thief. With that in mind, he tries to answer a couple of questions, like what makes a neighborhood attractive to thieves, does having a dog deter a burglar, what makes a house so attractive, what is next once the burglar targets a house, and how should home owners hide valuables.
