"Bump key" burglaries

Here's a news story about a string of "bump key" burglaries in South Jersey all committed by the same suspect.  Considering how easy it is to gain entry into a home using a bump key and considering you can watch how-to videos on the internet, I'm amazed it doesn't happen more often.  But the fact is most burglaries don't involve bump keys or otherwise "picking" locks.  For instance, one of my neighbors just had a burglary in her home three nights ago through an UNLOCKED rear door.  Duh!
