- Locked phones and tablets
- Items with the “Antique” prefix (Richie R. and Industrial Sts.)
- Any painting found in Industrial St.

Note 1: money gained from jobs regarding breaking something does not count towards those achievements.
Note 2: you can often sell items for higher prices on BlackBay, at your computer.
Finish 10 S rank thefts without being seen
To achieve an S rank on a theft, you need to steal at least some items without being detected by anyone, this includes tenants, street bypassers, security guards and potentially police officers, as well as security cameras and alarms. The more money you steal in items, the higher your chances of getting an S rank are. Note that stealing items you’ve never stole before might increase the likelyhood of a perfect rank as well.
Note: rank is calculated after exiting the map’s borders, either by vehicle or on foot.
Disable 10 control panels
Control panels are those locks where you need to connect two ends of the panel in order to unlock a door or gate. Only unlockable after acquiring the Hacking PDA. Control Panels are found on almost every residence in Richie R.
Breaking Items Achievements

Break 10 toilets
Who Needs Dishes?
Break 10 dishes
Those three achievements require you to destroy 10 windows, toilets and dishes respectively with your crowbar. Those items can be found in every household in the game, just beware that the noise of you breaking those items will alert nearby people.
Note: the easiest place to farm for those achievements is the very first place you rob, during the tutorial, as the place is always unguarded and has 1 set of dishes, 1 toilet and several windows.
