We got robbed this past weekend. We were house sitting for the past week, went home Saturday morning to pick up some stuff only to find our backdoor kicked in. At first we thought the robbers took only the wii, xbox, video games, and dvds, but last night we looked around more and realized they also took Jeremy's camera bag, some other electronic gadgets he has, and my backpack. Not cool. Luckily I didn't have much in my backpack (although I really liked it!!) but Jeremy's camera bag had at least two cameras in it, a bunch of lenses, and other camera equipment. He also had that bag since he was 14 or 15. I think we were more upset last night when we found out what else they took than when we thought it was only the video game stuff and dvds.
Jeremy talked with our neighbor yesterday and found out that at least two other houses in the neighborhood have been broken into since ours was. At one they didn't get anything at least, I'm not sure about the other house. If they're going to keep hitting our area, maybe they'll get caught. I sure hope so. We gave the police the serial numbers for the wii and xbox so if they try to pawn those they might be able to track the thieves.
Today is our last day house sitting so it will be the first night back in our house since the robbery. It was kind of nice not having to sleep and stay there right after it happened - we got some time away to process and relax (some). Jeremy is setting up a camera so in case this ever happens again, we'll at least have footage of the people. Sometimes it's nice to be married to a geek who can do all that!
