KATE AND JOHN It is 10:00pm at night in early November. Kate, age 15, and John, age 16, are walking along a dirt road. It is very windy and getting colder. Kate notices a home (The Smith residence) with the garage door open. There are no lights on inside the home. Both walk into the garage. Once inside the garage, they realize the home is unoccupied and notice that the door into the home is shut but unlocked. Kate is initially hesitant, but eventually opens the door and walks into the home followed by John. Once inside they both walk around the home. Both drink some soda found in the refrigerator. In the living room, Kate notices a locked glass cabinet containing a number of CD’s she has always wanted. She breaks the glass, and removes 12 CD’s. She hands them to John who puts them into the backpack Kate has on. At this point, they begin to get nervous and walk back into the garage. Once in the garage John notices a Cannondale Mountain Bike worth £700. He takes the bike; Kate gets on the crossbar and both ride away from the home to the home of a friend named Tom.
