"Officers in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, and the homeowners themselves, have yet to figure out how the burglars so successfully identify houses with large gold caches. Before they became victims, many of the families were strangers, and they and police have eliminated many of the obvious links: churches, temples, schools or even grocery stores where they could have been tracked."
Do you think there may be information leaked from where they may have bought gold in big chunk? I don't know at all. Just a GUESS
The robers may have got the database by hecking or some other way. This way they know this family must have some gold, as they recently bought GOLD.
