Big Suck.

Last night, Barb took the dog over to a friend's house for a visit. She got back around midnight, to find the house had been broken into.

So far all that seems to be missing is a bunch of DVDs and jewelry. I will find out more after I get up there tomorrow night.

There may be more missing, but the big stuff was left alone.

What bugs me is that they hit the house at *just* the right time, when both Barb and the dog were out. That could mean that they were *watching* the house.

Paranoia. It's not just for breakfast anymore.

Or it could just be a freak chance. Hopefully, even if they were watching, they will not return to the scene of the crime.

I'm glad she's ok.

I'm so sorry this happened. That sucks.

CDs and DVDs are, I'm told, very popular theft items. It is very easy to sell them used. You don't have to "know someone" to fence them.

I had a break-in my second year in Minneapolis. The CDs were gone, and a pile of comics that were out. When the Cop came he said, "and they stole a pillowcase, right?" I was about to tell him "no" when I looked and saw that my pillowcases were gone. They used them to carry the CDs. Dinkytown.

I hope the jewelry was insured, and that the DVDs were replaceable.

Um, which also means they know Barb is a gal all alone in a house. Feh.

There are times I'm real glad there's two doors between me and the outside world.

Aw, Christ. At least I'm glad Barb was out of the house when they broke in.

Break-ins suck. The only one I weathered was when I lived in the rural area north of St. Cloud. A bunch of kids broke in and stole two *very* nice swords, a pile of CDs, and the brand new Minolta SLR that I paid for, in hard-earned cash, three days before. Fuckers broke out a ground-level window, too, and we spent weeks chasing the frogs out of the house. I had fantasies about going after the bastards with a shotgun filled with rock salt, broken glass, and vinegar powder.

The one taste of vengeance I had was when I discovered that the stack of CDs they grabbed were empty jewel cases. I still had the CDs themselves, in a CD folder in my car. HA!

We were burglarized on September 11, 2001 -- a memorable date. After all that horridness and fear that day, I came home to find that my jewelry was gone (in a pillowcase too).
