    I'm not sure 'breaks into' would have been the headline I used. Perhaps 'flags its first property' or 'tries its luck' would have been better.

    Though Equatorial Guinea is a relatively peaceful nation (certainly when compared to some of its neighbors), a recent US State Department report noted, "In 2010, there were several incidents involving diplomatic and expatriate residences (breaking and entering), numerous vehicle break-ins, and armed intruders holding the residents at knife point while the house was ransacked. There has been a rising trend in smash-and-grab (breaking a window and taking belongings) vehicle thefts, and they are being carried out in day light in a highly trafficked area around a large supermarket in the city."
