All of the above.
Only way to know for sure is to get inside and see what the other side looks like.
Pretty much this. If it's well secured, it's not usually worth the effort and obvious B&E charges if you get caught. Open door or whatever can just be trespassing. Making an opening turns it into B&E, which isn't worth the potential drama as an adult.
Hell, I've mounted oversized and framed plywood panels to walls before just to fuck with people trying to get in. Make the 'window' look easier to get into than the steel gate and they'll spend hours trying to pry off a sheet of plywood on a 1x1" frame. Only to find out that it was masonry bolted to a cinderblock wall.
God, I wish I could have heard their rage on that one lol.
But I'm an asshole and secure stuff well if I'm not going to be around for a while. (It was a business we were closing down and had to leave the bigger machinery in place until we could get a flat bed)
