Most people keep their jewelry and other valuables in the master bedroom. Reformed cat burglar Walter Shaw says you're just making it easier for robbers to find all of your valuables in one place. Learn where not
to stash the good stuff.
5 Forbidden Places
- The Master Bathroom
Walter says that nine times out of 10, he hit the jackpot with a jewelry box on the vanity or in a drawer.
- The Closet
You're not fooling anyone by hiding your jewelry out of sight. An experienced robber will know just where to look.
- Your Dresser Drawers
Drawers are another typical hiding place for cash or jewelry.
- The Underwear Drawer
Someone looking for valuables won't be embarrassed about pawing through your delicates.
- A Nightstand
Even if they're on both sides of the bed, Walter says, a criminal will check them thoroughly.
