And isn't today the Sabbath?
Current Mood: blah blah
My apartment got broken into. Not even sure how. All the windows are locked, door was too. I knew something was wrong as soon as I got home and saw the trash can in the middle of the driveway...

They took a large chunk of my DVD’s, the PS2 and all related games, my sword!, and a good deal of my jeans.

Some shirts, I think. Don't really keep my clothes cataloged. Surprised they didn't take my computer or some of the things worth actual money in the apt. At first I'd thought they'd taken my router too, but it appears they just snagged it behind the TV when they took the ps2.

Waiting on the police.

Oh fraptous day.

edit1: Digicam gone (this makes the second one to be stolen). One dagger (but not all). I think actually most of my pants are there, just rifled through. They did go through my closets. They went through my desks but didn't apparently see anything worth stealing, including my checkbook and some credit cards thank god. Need to go through my important papers folder, as that was rifled through...

This happened to me once when I lived in Ft. Wayne. I immediately made up a flyer with the list of stolen cds and took it to every place I could think of that bought used cds. I offered a $100 reward to anyone who would alert the police if some one came in trying to sell these cds. In this way the thief was caught and arrested. I gave a $100 reward to the Wooden Nickel employee who called the police.

oh wow, i am so sorry to hear about this. my stomach just sank to read this. if there's anything we can do, let us know! i can't believe they left your checkbook and credit cards, although those things can be traced. and it's a blessing. you may want to call those in just in case though.

Sometimes I have to count my blessings.

That just sucks. :(
You should move to New Orleans. People here are so busy shooting each other that they can't possibly find the time to break into your house and rifle through your things. ;)

Re: Ack!

lol. That's comforting. I'll look into your not biased suggestion. :P

See, THIS is why you should move to Athens!

No people shooting at you.

No broken into apartments (at least not for us...)

And ME. And BABY. Baby is fun.

Come see me. :(!!!!

Aww, Jeffy... verily, that doth sucketh. I'm surprised to hear that your apt was broken into - especially with everything locked. I worry a little bit about my new apt in Cambridge because it's on the first floor and I often leave windows open, but my neighborhood is pretty safe. What a strange world when Boston-ish is safer than Indiana. Weird.

I'm inclined to think whoever broke into your apt was kids (like 17-25ish), considering what they theifed and what they left behind. The suggestion about taking a list around and offering a reward sounds like a great one. You should check out GameStops and EB Games and whatnot in the area, too, in case they try to unload your PS2. And any local bulletin boards where people sell things (does Fort Wayne have a Craig's List?) And eBay. But a sword? Come on, peeps.

I hope the police are able to figure something out, sir! And I hope youse guys are able to figure out how they got in. Be safe.

Suck, dude. Sorry!

Does sound like teens though like someone said, from the sword and such.

And can't remember who said it, but babies are not just fun, they're theft deterrents!

Someone sees an exersaucer sitting around, some neon bright toys, and they know you've got no money for anything they'd want!

im sorry jeff..... i ment to make a comment when i got home on suday night to this ... and got to tired ..... it was one of those ... im reading .... and then someone says something ... and its kinda like ooooo shiney ... .and then look back at the screen and go what was i doing ... oh i dunno but i think its time for bed....

feel asleep 3 time on the way into work .... while my dad was driving... thank goodness... were still down cars .... its crazy and i keep feeling more and more run down instead of you know getting better feeling ... or something...

i hope you find your stuff ... and the bad men get at least smacked upside the head for it .... though how they got in and out with everything locked is very intreesting.... id like to know that part if you get any word... least it wasnt a fire.... there seem to be a boggeling amount of house/apartment fires in the last several weeks here.... so i am very thankful it was just some punkc kids taking punk kid stuff... and none of the canceling cards and fighting fradulant charges and such .... thats a pain in the butt.... hope things get better... oh and at least you have your car and its ok yes???

But you'd look good in punk.

The car's okay. In fact, it is currently being made very shiny and pretty. =)

Actually the policeman thought they came and left through the same window, and that I probably locked it myself after I explained the story to him. And I agree.

Re: But you'd look good in punk.

ugh ... stupid windows... did it have a screen .... theres been lots of talk about window screens lately ... why the english dont have them ... why they never stay in apartment windows... why land lords dont want to replace them ... why my mom cant life with out them .... anyway ....

as for the punk ... i might ... though im getting a bit old i think for it now ... plus the fact that where am i gonna go like that .... i mean my work place is liberal and all but that might be a bit much dont you think?

Re: But you'd look good in punk.

Heh, it would be at work. Sometimes tho playing dressup and just going out can be the fun.

Anyways, I remember about the screens. It did have one, they put a couple of wholes into it to push it up. Very neat stuff.

Re: But you'd look good in punk.

interesting .....

ok so im lazy and that would require me to acutally go out .... something i also was gonna mention in my post last night and didnt ... this odd drive to be hermitish ..... its not that i dont want to go out and do things or see ppl... but i have no desire to get out to do the essentials... the food shopping... and day end of work all i can think of is ... home... bed.... hungry ... prolly in that order.... or sometimes i want to lay in the sun .. but ... really .... i find my slef thinking ... why cant you know ppl come to me ... or the food... or whatever.. and i suppose they can but it gets really expensive that way =)

Re: But you'd look good in punk.

LOL. I think the same thing. Us hermits, we're wacky. Today I even caught myself wishing that my barber had his appointment book online so I could just do it that way.

Re: But you'd look good in punk.

i dont like feeling like this ... i dont know what happens... i mean i know im tired and such ... but man somedays ... when im really tired i just wanna feel like a 12yr old again ... have that kinda energy ... and be able to go .. and then come home and sleep well.. and it seemed in that day and age there was always time enough to get everything done.... if you ever figure out how to get this kinda down id love to be let in the secret =)

I know its late, but..ick. Hopefully they catch them. They caught the guy that broke into my house, but were unable to find any of our stuff in his possession (we think we know who was holding it for him, but can't prove anything) so he didn't get nailed for that one, but they got them on several other burglaries. They got caught because the booted up a stolen computer that automatically connected to its mother computer so they could trace it back to them.
