Taller, shorter, shmorter. If you want deterrent, try the lovely to look at, hard to cross razor wire circular deal. Then plant one of those fast growing bougainvillas inside: the ones with the slightly poisonous sharp thorns. At least the thieves will suffer for their ill gotten goods.
Once they get inside the perimeter wall anyway, have bars on everything. Sturdy ones that will take a little work to cut through.

Now ......get a dog that threatens to eat your friends when they visit and barks all night.
All that oughta do 'er. (grin)
