..... Finally!!! An explanation to my original post that makes sense. And yes, when we had our house built, the builder had all the external door locks keyed alike. I just assumed that this was standard practice.

Yep! This happened to me. But they wound up cutting themselves on the glass and got blood all over the deck. They had started to steal a TV and other odds and ends but apparently the bleeding was so bad all they got away with was a roll of paper towels and the TV remote which they must have put in their pocket. They even left their bloody "burglar tools" behind!

What usually happens is--The thief is thinking the door is like a regular house door and they DO destroy the frame and the door with the pry bars, but they NEVER get the door open.

I feel so much better now.
