Why does John 10:1 make a distinction between “thief” and “robber”?

“I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in  by some other way, is a thief and a robber."

John 10:1

ESV - 1 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber.
