    Pretty sure it's still considered burglary regardless of unlocked doors. In fact, a simple Google search: *"the unlawful entry into almost any structure (not just a home or business) with the intent to commit any crime inside (not just theft/larceny). No physical breaking and entering is required; the offender may simply trespass through an open door."*
    Even if they didn't commit a crime, as long as they had an intention to, it's still burglary.

    I literally had this SAME problem. I (admittedly) used to leave my old 2000 Cavalier open, and when I got inside to go to work one morning, I froze, because everything in my glovebox was ransacked and all over the car. (I also watch BBC's Sherlock, and I am obsessed with it to the core. I do take his advice, and I do observe beyond the normal scope, do the deductive reasoning, all that).
    So it was a good thing it snowed that night, because the perpetrator left his FOOTPRINTS all over the side of the car. So I calmly got out, took a photo of a nice, clean, footprint with my phone, and scoured the whole property (we live on a community lot) for the same type, shape, size, and shoe model as the perpetrator's. (I had reverse Google images to thank for finding out the shoe model).
    The footprints led me right up to his front door. I had his address. I go back home, type up a lengthy letter with a piece of my mind in it, with the occasional gloating that I'm not one to be trifled with, stuck it in an envelope, and drove right up to his front door, slapping the letter on his door.
    The residents of Weatherstone Village slept a little sounder that day. :)
    Seriously, who commits a crime IN THE SNOW where your footprints can be seen?
