On the road to housebreaking?

A study of preparatory acts in housebreaking (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In January 2014 a Member of Parliament has proposed to criminalize possession of professional tools for housebreaking. The Minister of Security and Justice answered that preparatory acts already are criminalized (article 46 Penal Law) and that this article may be utilized in regard to burglary (article 311 Penal Law) during the night time.
The research has been focused on the experience with (possible) burglars caught during preparation of a burglary with special attention for possible complications, if the legislation also should include the day times and the evening.
