I doubt if an electrified razor-wire fence would be considered any form 
of a trap if you had suitable warnings. Take a look at "Holland's Suzuki 
Cars, 4 Shakespeare Road, Waltham". From street-view the electrification 
signs on the fence are visible as yellow rectangles.

If I were interested in tightening up security of a property in an 
enthusiastic manner, I would talk to the police first. Possibly by 
inviting them around to advise.

What was the result of the burglary ?

Basically, are you responsible for trespassing people injuring themselves on your property? Any links would be welcomed. I have not had any luck finding the details or even an overview.
