    My house was robbed today. 3 basses, my new aggie th500, my lady's Sony HD cam (she shoots sports), all her jewelry and obviously our privacy. The D-bag(s) came in through the dog door.

    Violated.

    I posted pics of my basses in the lost & stolen forum, but that doesn't get much traffic. I'm already all over craigslist and made phone calls.

    Venting now. Thanks.

    Oy. I'm so sorry man. There is very little on this planet I hate worse than someone who thinks they just deserve someone else's stuff. Best of luck getting your stuff/life back.

    Wow, sorry to hear about that! I can't even imagine the feeling. Good luck getting everything back, and I really hope the thieves get what they deserve, in turn.

    Ah man... sorry. I think I will photograph my serial numbers on EVERYTHING tomorrow. We've had five break-ins in the last 2 weeks in a 10 mile radius. They are two white dudes that use a crowbar on the outer garage door, and then in through there.

    Fortunately the dumb asses used credit cards and are on camera at several stores. The also bought parts for a '92 Nissan, so that's another plus. If I see that car I'm on it. Already bike locked all my gear and padlocked it. Two people couldn't move the mess I've locked together; couple hundred pounds of awkward mass.

    Humanity sucks. Also had my car vandalized and a bag (of mostly school stuff) taken in 10min while I was inside 711. It took them no time at all. Fortunately a camera was pointed right at them and I got the license plate and make/model. I'm gonna go with an officer to review the video tape tomorrow. It'll have his face for sure.
     
  8. Sorry to hear - it's a horrible feeling for sure. I hope you insurance company is both quick and fair (though I know the moneys just part of it). If the scumbag is caught, I hope he shares a cell with a 6"5' 250 pound sexually frustrated guy named "Choco".

    This is a lousy expereince to have to go through - I hope you get compensated adequately in a timely fashion.

    I don't know what the situation is in the US, but over here the courts are way too lenient with house breakers in the few cases that get successfully prosecuted. There should be some very serious consequences for anyone caught doing this, even for a first offence.

    We have a three car garage and park in the garage. One day the neighbor said to me, "Your home." I said we have been home. He started talking how he never sees me and thought we had gone somewhere. I said no we are inside.


    You can come in....no need to knock. Texas doesn't mind. You will never know what's waiting though.

    Same thing happened to a local band. Trailer stolen, all their PA, drums, lights, gone. I think it's time to put some really harsh punishments with these crimes.

    Sorry about you being a victim of stupid thieves. I hope you get your stuff back and
    the punks involved get caught and spend some serious time in jail.

    I have a home security system. I can control it remotely via my Galaxy Note 2, including the cameras. It's a great thing to have if you have valuables you want to protect. There are several good systems out there that are easy to set up and not all that expensive.

    Sorry to hear it Gusto, I feel your pain. My house was robbed in 2011, the scum pried open the kitchen window, crawled over the sink and took all my gear, TV, Computer, electronics, jewelry and carried everything out through the garage.

    My gear showed up on CL 12 months later. I answered the ad, but they didn't reply, so they must have already sold some of it and abandoned the ad.

    I've added a security system since the robbery, nothings foolproof, but when they see signs and cameras they look for an easier target.
