Blowtorch Burglary

‘Blowtorch Burglary’ … A frightenly new method that burglars are using to quickly gain entry into the homes they are targeting

This is mainly happening on UPVC and composite doors – Using a blowtorch the intruder burns the door plastic surrounding the key and handle area to expose the cylinder (where you put your key)

Once the cylinder is exposed, they can then ‘snap’ the cylinder – which is one thing that is keeping your door locked!!

Once snapped the cylinder is broken and can pushed out and your door opened

It’s fast – and terrifying that to think that in less than 30 seconds – An intruder can be in your front door

Up until now, lock snapping (using just pliers to break the cylinder) has been common, now police are reporting this ‘blowtorch burglary’ method as becoming more common – and it’s having enough impact on homeowners to hit the National news recently
