Inexperienced thieves tend to sell mostly by hawking to strangers in public places or selling to only one residential fence they know. Problem drug users in particular commonly find it hard to find fences who will deal with them. The most experienced and prolific offenders tend to have the most ways of selling stolen goods in a variety of markets. A study of experienced residential burglars found that they most often sold stolen goods to known fences, friends, or relatives rather than strangers.
