As temperatures outside increase, crime trends toward a sharp increase as well. There are several possible explanations for this correlation. People spend more time out of their house and tend to be more socially interactive during the warmer months. This creates an ideal opportunity for criminals to steal from unsuspecting people. Whatever the reason, 16% of people experience a property crime yearly. Being extra careful during the spike in crime during the spring and summer months can help you avoid these crimes.
