Die den Depots und Ausstellungsbereichen vorgelagerten Bereiche sind ... überwacht, so dass auch Einschließtäter erfasst werden, bevor diese zu den besonders gefährdeten Bereichen vordringen können.

Seems to be prevalent in museums.

Members of the public with an intent to rob who turn up with 5 minutes to closing and hide themselves somewhere?

HI DE! Hmmm, idiomatic? The text doesn't seem very idiomatic, do you mean colloquial? I searched for lock-in/shut-in/hidden/stowaway perpetrators, didn't turn up any results though. This was as close as I came to a single-word translation. Let's wait and see what the others come up with. Happy translating!

Notes to answerer
Asker: yes explains what it means very well. Not sure its all that idiomatic though..

Asker: Your suggestion does not sound very idiomatic so I went with something else. Thanks for your input.

sleeper-burglar(s); lock-themselves-in intruder(s)


Explanation:
Meets the classic legal definition of a burglary, though whether - colloquially - 'hide- or stow-away' (UK police slang) magpies and gannets is the answer looked for is another matter.

Täter > offender(s) no doubt short for Stratäter > criminal(s).






Example sentence(s):
  • I have recently been the victim of a sleeper burglary ..
  • Mr. Dickson found himself locked in the garage for eight days. He subsisted on a case of Pepsi he found, and a large bag of dry dog food

perpetrators/burglars hiding on the premises until closing time


Explanation:
I also did some googling and found various news reports of burglars hiding until closing/the store closed. I am with Ramey and do not think there is something idimatic in English for this. I would simply go with the flow and use the description rather than invent something that might not be easily understood. Also, words like sleeper (as in secret agents activated when needed) or stowaway (ships and planes immediately come to mind) carry connotations that I think might be confusing in this context.

Also, not limited to museums, seem to happen quite often in large US stores...

hide-behind or locked-in intruder


Explanation:
"Space detection provides an excellent method to detect the hide-behind or locked-in intruder." http://www.messagenetwork.com/alarms/faq1.html

If the translation is too wordy, it will sound like an explanation, not a translation. We should probably resist the temptation to find linguistic expression for every nuance we read into a German source term. In many cases, such nuances are not made explicit there either. Many terms become established eventually not because the form is super accurate or descriptive but because they're memorable for other reasons.

break-out burglar


Explanation:
I would suggest that this may be a possible solution. There are not really a lot of references, my guess is because it's a rather rare crime.

Reference information:
(N.B. Björn's helpful discussion entries appeared while I was preparing this, but I'll post anyway)

Electronic and optical systems should complement mechanical safeguards to monitor the areas structurally protected, and to activate an alarm in case of a crime (burglary or lock-in).

In addition [to] mere perimeter safeguards, “trap protection monitoring” should also be incorporated to detect locked-in burglars as early as possible.

Theft by and/or following "sneak in" and/or "lock in" are special types of theft and are dealt with in the same way as burglaries. In these cases, the perpetrator hides in the museum or utility rooms which give him fairly easy access to the artefacts and collectors’ items, making it possible for him to complete the crime after opening hours.
https://www.apsei.org.pt/media/recursos/documentos-de-outras...

The above is translation of the following German document.

Mechanische Sicherungen sollten durch elektronische und optische Systeme ergänzt werden, um die bauseitig mechanisch gesicherten Bereiche zu überwachen und im Fall einer Straftat (Einbruch oder Einschlusstat) eine Alarmmeldung zu generieren.

Neben der reinen Außenhautsicherung sollte auch eine Fallenüberwachung verwirklicht werden, um Einschlusstäter frühzeitig zu erkennen.

Diebstahl durch bzw. nach Einschleichen und/oder Einschließen lassen stellen Sonderformen dar und wird wie Einbruchdiebstahl behandelt. Hierbei verharrt der Täter im Museum oder in Nebenräumen, die ihm einen relativ leichten Zugang zu den Kunst- und Sammlungsgegenständen ermöglichen, um nach Beendigung des Tagesbetriebs die Tat zu vollenden.

Area protection is also sometimes called volumetric protection. The sensors used for this purpose protect the interior spaces of a business or residence. These devices provide coverage whether or not the perimeter is penetrated and are especially useful in detecting the “stay-behind” criminal.

Area Protection
Area protection is designed to detect the presence of a person within an interior room or space within a facility. This method is used to detect intruders who were able to bypass the perimeter detection system or for “stay-behind” burglars who set off the perimeter system, but are able to hide within the facility until the all clear is given.
https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/computer-science/protec...

hide-in burglar
One who hides inside a protected premises before closing time with the intent of committing theft undetected after closing time. He would then trip the alarm upon breaking out and make a fast getaway before police have a chance to respond.
stay-behind burglar - Same as HIDE-IN BURGLAR
wait-in burglar - See HIDE-IN BURGLAR

As with a PIR, an ultrasonic detector would detect a “lock in” or concealed intruder by that person's movement.

agree  Björn Vrooman: Sorry, I should post more references, but it's such a nuisance editing them, especially if something comes out wrong when you're typing too fast. Stay behind seems to be the term of "art" (what a wordplay); also like your second-to-last link. / Indeed!
