For as high amount sold annually stolen goods in Denmark. And right in this time where we are all looking for christmas gifts for our nearest ask many this question: How do I get to buy a stolen thing, when I'm buying gifts on the web?

Interest in buying tyveknægtenes goods is quite massive.

The now former burglar, 27-year-old Daniel Iversen, has recently told in B. T., how he has committed 350 to 400 burglaries.

When hælerne not just lacking in the things stolen, he put them even on the net.

And it was usually with great success.

"It could be Facebook and The Blue paper. Here puts you just stuff into, and people are ecstatic when they find designerlamper to a third of the new price and really want to buy it. The receipt shall make the not so much the question of," said Daniel Iversen recently, B. T.

But back to the question.

B. T. has made it to the Søren Have Enevoldsen, who is vicepolitiinspektør at the National Efterforskningscenter of the national Police.

He points to several things that are quite essential in order to avoid to support tyveknægtene. In particular, one must be very watchful, if the price is far below the nyprisen.

"of course We will maintain an eye on the exchange of stolen goods on the platforms, where it is often 1-to-1 communication between hæler and the future buyer. And since we must of course urge that the citizens they are considering whether or not it is a stupid idea to buy a telephone to 1,000 kr. instead of 10.000 kr.," he says.

recently, it has been promoting in B. T., it goes beyond the examination of other forms of crime to the police and the courts have set as a goal that both the waiting time and the number of cases should decrease by twenty percent within the personfarlige crime.

And just theft and burglary does not belong to the personfarlige crime.

What will you do for the duration of the proceedings also fall within the cases, such as burglary?

"When it gets priority, that the police districts must focus on personfarlig crime, so of course it is a task that we as an authority must perform. This does not mean we close our eyes for burglary and receiving stolen goods. But of course, there is a natural priority in it, you just have set," says Søren Have Enevoldsen.

How do you see it as a cop over for those who get exposed to the intrusion?

"It's terrible, when there is intrusion in your home, and therefore, also, that those who purchase goods on different platforms, they try to think about whether it could be stolen goods."

"If you stop buying it here, so stop to break-in around the country also," he says.

At The Blue paper is the message, that receiving stolen goods and the crime is taken very seriously.

"We find it unacceptable that criminals use our platform for receiving stolen goods," says Sabine Danielle Petersen, who is the PR manager at The Blue paper.

"We encourage users to report ads they deem suspicious."
