I'm so very sorry. Seems the bad guys are getting bolder and targeting houses having work done. In our town, they just look for unlocked doors and barge in.

Sorry to hear that, Ron. 

If you have a safe space for the cars, maybe get a flatbed wrecker to move them to a safer space right now so they're at least out of sight.

If you're anything like me, those cars are your babies.

 

You certainly feel violated having criminals break into your home like that.

Here in Texas. we have other, more permanent remedies against thieves and home invaders, but thugs have gotten somewhat smarter and gone high tech. They just watch Facebook and wait till people say they're on a trip before they strike.

 

 

I hope you have better luck with the cops than we have down here. They show little interest in investigating these things until it's them or one of their family that gets hit.

Sorry to hear about this sads news, Ron. Seems rather suspicious about the cleaning lady and the whole timing issue. Just terrible news. On the plus side there has been some great advise presented by several LSP'ers. I hope this has a decent ending or some peace of mind eventually. Keep us posted.

Wow, sorry to hear you were broken in to Ron. That's never a fun thing. It's happened twice to us while living in Vancouver and twice here in Abbotsford. The last time they stole my truck right out o' the garage while we slept. I spent the next two weeks waking at the slightest noise in the house. It'll take a while before you let your guard down again, believe me, I know.

You might want to consider getting a Rottweiler. They love intruders uncooked!

Cheers,
Wolf

If the cleaning lady was somehow involved, seems that would be a red flag if detectives started looking into break-ins in your area.

I would be shocked if she's involved. First, she's the first place the cops will look. Unless she's a tweaker or addict, why risk everything for some tip money from burglars?

 

Based on what's happening here in NJ, I suspect the perps are just randomly looking for places that are unlocked, unoccupied, etc.

 

And yet my neighbors continue to let papers and mail pile up in front of their house when they are away, and leave the front porch light on day & night as if to say "we're out now, please burglarize us."

Try to relax and look after your two cars!
Cheers

Sorry to hear this, hope insurance covers everything and the perpetrator/s are caught, had an outdoor shed broken into a few years ago, nothing worth stealing in there thankfully so hopefully they wont come back, have since fitted outdoor motion sensing security cams front and back that records and is shared on my home network, not to expensive and night vision is good too, 4 camera's does me but you can buy home systems that have more if needed.

That really sucks, Ron, and I certainly have felt the violation myself. A few years back, my then girlfriends house was robbed on Christmas eve. I went over there every day for two weeks after, armed with my .357 magnum, just hoping to find them in the house again, but of course they were never there. Perhaps  the worst of it, was that they kicked her puppy down the basement stairs, injuring his throat so bad, that he could never bark again properly, and always had problems breathing after that. They are so fortunate that I never caught them in that house.

Thats truly horrible. I don't know much that would stop me, even bare handed if I witnessed someone doing that to one of my animals.

A .357?  LOLOL  Just the tool for shooting the terrorist through the refrigerator, through your wall, his wall, and through his refrigerator as well.
