Our home was broken into

January 22nd, 2016 at 06:47 pm

So our home was broken into today. Though I'm thankful that no one was hurt and not much was stolen, it still annoys me.

The day started out here raining cats and dogs, heading to work I had my lunch bag, purse and breakfast in hand. Something said to me, lock gate, in my rush I thought I did but didn't check. That was around 8:07 am.

Around 1:30 the boyfriend called to say, the house was broken into and you need to come home.

Low and behold the glass slider was smashed ($275).
Thank God, all the TVs, tablets, digital camera and computer was still in place. The jerk stole every piece of jewelry I had, four of my watches, and the change I've been putting off cashing in. He stole my BF change, his watch I just bought him for Christmas. What bothers me the most, is that the change that was my BF was in his dad's canister, he just want the canister back since his dad is no longer with us. Fir me, my pandora bracelet is missing. It's five years of collecting charms of our story. Though the bracelet is valued over a $1000 it's sentimental value is worth more.

The jerk cut himself breaking in so the officer has his DNA and the neighbors have him on their surveillance camera. The officer said he knew who he was, so hopefully he'll be arrested.

That was my day in a nutshell

    Darn. That is NOT good! Did you have renter's/homeowner's insurance? Will it cover jewelry?

    I am so sorry, Iknow how you feel. Our house, in Florida was broken into and they made off with a lot of stuff. I fenced my yard, bought two dobermans (Dixie and Dusty) and no one EVER came into our yard again.

    Wow. Since it was mostly jewelry that he stole, it sounds like he wanted things easy to hock for cash. I'll bet it's a drug addict. I sure hope they catch him!

    We've had a couple of B&Es over 25 years and it's so upsetting. Having surveillance film sounds wonderful, hope they get the guy.
    Our experience with the insurance claim agent made a bad situation worse. I hope you have photos of jewelry or yourself wearing the missing jewelry. We couldn't prove stolen money in coin collection, a recent lottery win or large coin jar in spite of a picture that happened to include the coin jar. Don't be surprised if the claim agent disputes every item, it requires you stay calm, firm and repetitive. It's a lot of work to replace stuff.

    Thanks everyone. Unfortunately, we do not have security but should have everything up and running today. We had no rental insurance 😥

    I'm so sorry. I've never experienced this but I can imagine how truly upsetting this is. I do hope they nail the guy. You may still have a chance at nailing your jewelry. Even if he sold it to a pawn shop for cash.

    A friend of mine had their expensive commercial grade lawn equipment stolen from a shed, but they went to where they bought it, where the owner had a record of serial number, etc, so they went around to local pawn shops and found it. Since it was stolen, the pawn shop couldn't keep it.

    I'm so sorry. It must be very upsetting. At least it sounds like justice will be served.
