The number of burglaries has increased by 65-70% during the vacation period, the senior detective for special cases of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Internal Ministry Ivan Maksymchuk said at a briefing, as ForUm correspondent reports.

He said that 11.5 thousand burglaries were registered in Ukraine for the first half of this year, it is 300 burglaries more than for the same period in 2011. According to the detective, if we compare the number of burglaries in the first and second quarters, it increases consistently due to the beginning of the vacation period.

Most burglaries happen in Kyiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Donetsk regions. Maksymchuk noted that it is directly related to the welfare of the citizens, that’s why the majority of burglaries occur in the rich cities and regions. In particular, in Kyiv 2340 thefts were committed during the first half of the year.

The detective said that 80% of thieves enter a house picking a lock. "Any lock is not an obstacle for professional burglars," he said.
