      About This Document
      Mike Gallagher, a sophomore in the Mercyhurst College Institute for Intelligence Studies program, prepared this report for Prof. David Grabelski. This Report serves to analyze a serial burglar who has been committing burglaries from 11/4/2008 to 12/21/2009. The taskings for this report were given on January 4, 2010 and the final product was completed on January 18, 2009. The analytical confidence for this assessment is high. Source reliability is high. There is no conflict amongst sources. The analyst had low expertise, worked alone and did not use structured analytical methods. The analysis was simple and the amount of time available was sufficient.

      Area around the 9th and 19th burglary and possibly around the area of the 7th and 8th burglary
      AnalysisThe burglar is highly likely to strike on either a Monday or Tuesday between the times of 0045 and 0407, specifically between the dates of 1/4/10 and 1/19/10. The analyst considers the next burglary to be on 1/4/10 as shown on the “Possible Dates” sheet and the time of the burglary to be around 0300, which is shown on the Date/Time sheet. -10854263795

      Hot Spots: Elevated High Medium Low : White= AnchorLocationLocation
      Medium RiskAnalysisThe burglar is likely to strike around the area of the 9th and 19th burglary and possibly around the area of the 7th and 8th burglary. Hot spots suggest the burglar may strike around the Elevated Risk areas. However, behavioral analysis (Page 12) forecasts the burglar will likely strike around the area of the 9th and 19th burglary. If the burglar’s next burglary is similar to 12th, 13th, and 14th burglary, then the attack may be near the 7th and 8th burglary. Conversely, the average distance from the 20th burglary may be around 2.1 miles. However, the burglar’s max distance between burglaries is 6.27 miles and his mileage between burglaries is increasing. -527050-400050

      AnalysisIt is highly likely the burglar is creating a counter-clockwise pattern. The burglar rotates counterclockwise outward first, then back in and out again as shown by the map on the left. Using this rotational pattern the analyst predicted the next burglary would occur in the area towards the 9th and 19th burglary. However, if the burglar where to repeat the anomaly that is burglary # 12, 13, and 14, then next burglary will likely occur near the area of the 7th and 8th burglary. Furthermore, the burglar’s M.O is using a pry bar. Most of the time the burglar’s break ins through the rear door instead of the rear window. Yet the burglar seems to commit a pattern with rear door breakins, 2-1-2-4-2-1- . Going of this pattern I predict the next break-in will be through the window. 1847215201930Los Angeles Police Department Serial Commercial BurglariesAnalyst: Mike GallagherRIAP 276January 18, 2010

      AnalysisThe burglar’s next target will likely be either a pharmacy or a sporting goods retailer. The burglar will likely strike a pharmacy, possibly a Rite Aid or something of the same ilk. 4/5 of the sporting good businesses burglarized where at two of the same address. However, all pharmacies burglarized where at different addresses. -38100-447675
