The tombs of great kings and nobles in Egypt were built to preserve the corpses and possessions of the deceased for all eternity. Many of them have disappeared, although many have lasted thousands of years and some even centuries.
The burial chambers were specifically located and the chambers and corridors of the tombs were filled with rubble to prevent thefts. Nevertheless, the tomb was plundered and broken open, even the mummies of the king were taken and even his mummy was taken. The plundering of ancient Egypt was already recognized as a serious problem in the early dynastic period. Known as “Amherst Papyrus,” it is the original court record of the tomb robbery at Ramses IX.
In one section, the document describes the robbery of the tomb of a nobleman from western Thebes, Re – according to this document, who, accompanied by the stonemason Hapiwer, plundered the tombs of noblemen from western Thebes.
At his trial, Amenpnufer admitted that he used copper tools to dig a tunnel to the royal pyramid, but not to his own tomb.
A group of ancient Egyptian grave robbers, who got away with about half the value of gold, were thwarted. Eight thieves broke into the tomb of King Amenpnufer, King of Egypt, and his family in order to get hold of the priceless possessions stored there. Historian Bettany Hughes reveals the discovery in the paper, which sheds new light on the secrets behind Egypt’s tomb robbers.
One of the men, named Amenpanufer, described how they plundered the tomb and how easy it was to escape punishment after being arrested. As is customary, we plundered a tomb, and we found the pyramid tomb of King Sobekemsaf, because that was the pyramid tomb that was normally plundered by nobles. We took copper tools and, in turn, broke into the pyramids of kings and robbed them, as was our usual practice. After we robbed them again, we returned to one of our comrades and returned to the Pyramid of Giza to rob again.
We found an underground chamber, and after holding a lit candle, we went down to the tomb of King Sobekemaph and his wife.
In the spring and summer of 1712, Boston merchants, shopkeepers, and artisans experienced a peak in nighttime burglaries. The increase in burglaries in Boston prompted the court to act, and the burglary became a capital crime if the offender could prove that the house was empty at the time of the burglary. With the tightening of penalties in the 1770s, burglary remained such a problem that the Massachusetts legislature in 1780 made burglaries a capital crime, even if a house had stood empty when the burglar entered it. Burglaries have been a recurring concern for people in and around Boston.
At the time, Deputy Governor Hutchinson claimed that the reason the burglary rate in Massachusetts was so high was because burglars came from other colonies, where the punishment for the crime was death. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts uses the term burglary to refer to entering an apartment at night with the intention of committing a crime.
The felony burglary is divided into four levels: first-degree burglary, theft, robbery, assault and second-degree robbery.
The first three degrees are crimes, while the fourth degree of burglary is a misdemeanor and the fourth degree of burglary is a misdemeanor. Burglary and entering an apartment with intent to commit theft or violent crime are first-degree burglaries. Breaking into and entering a structure or other dwelling, including watercraft, aircraft, railroad cars or ships, with intent to commit theft, arson or crime by force is a second-degree burglary punishable by up to five years in prison and / or a $10,000 fine. If the offender has committed a burglary, the offence of aggravated burglary will be recorded on the criminal record for a maximum of three years.
Police are also separately identifying distraction burglaries during residential burglaries – recorded crime data. These include cases where the offender first enters the premises and then uses distraction methods to stay on the premises or to gain access to other parts of the premises or another part of the premises in order to commit a burglary, for example by posing as a craftsman. A third-degree burglary in which untruths, tricks or distractions are used to gain access to or attempt to enter a room without committing the burglary and / or the occupants of that apartment. It is closed if the burglary is disturbed or if a burglary has occurred in the apartment, such as a door, window, door knob or other property.
A person convicted of burglary or the first such offense is fined no less than $1,000, or jailed for more than five years, or both. Identification of a burglary in which the accused tries to shake off his gloves before fleeing the scene of the burglary. A burglary involving the use of burglary tools is, in some jurisdictions, a serious offence and a crime that accumulates after unimaginable crimes.
