Tool Bandits...

Yesterday morning Jason and I woke up to find that our garage and Jason's truck had been broken into and ALL of J's tools were gone! They broke in through the side people door in the garage and then disengaged the garage door and lifted the door with hardly making any noise. Then they broke the lock on the back of J's truck and cleaned his tailgate out too! Luckily, they did not take J's million dollar golf clubs or my 6 strollers in the garage. If they were smart they could have each loaded up a baby stroller and saved their backs.....guess they don't think like moms with kids. The responding officer believes that it is someone in the neighborhood or an aquaintance because they obviously knew what we had and where it was kept. Tools is the only thing they got. No one was hurt so that is all that really matters. Of course we are getting the run around with out insurance and about $8,000 worth of stuff was lifted.....I do not know if we will ever be able to recover that much from insurance....oh, well. From my past life experiences I realize that yes, while it hurts the pocketbooks and we all feel personally violated, nothing was taken that can't be replaced.....it's just a pain in the butt at this point.

What a terrible feeling. We should just move to a commune where you can only get in after a background check and full fingerprinting! Obviously not very smart crooks not to load up the strollers with the golf clubs...you are right!
