Don't hunt for antiques or collectibles by breaking into an abandoned house or other building without permission from the owner. Often the house or building belongs to a bank, mortgage company, or an absent owner. There have been cases where the local police have arrested intruders or even wounded them.

Of course it's burglary! Anyone with any common sense and a smidgen of morals shouldn't have to be warned. This really struck a cord with me. I own an old abandoned family house which has been broken into 3 times in the past year. The next intruder is in for a real surprise...he he he!!!!

How can anybody possibly think that this is not burglary?
