Grand Theft Everything Electronic: My House Edition

We were robbed today. PS3, Wii, digital camera, brand new laptop — all gone. Beware, geeks! You are the target of the money hungry and the criminal! They don’t care about you or how you were finally getting the hand of Red Dead Redemption. They care about their meth habit. At least, that’s what they care about around here. Your mileage may vary.

The theft occurred in broad day light at our home. They kicked in the door, ransacked the place, but only took the small electronics — left our thousand dollar television, which was nice of them I guess. (Or they couldn’t stuff it in a bag to manage.) This leads the police to believe it was only one guy. It doesn’t matter though — the house looks like an army went through it, sacking and pillaging like Vikings.

Right now I’m sort of in shock. I’ve activated LoJack for Laptops which I hope will help in the retrieval process, but who knows what happens next.

Ladies: Keep your serial numbers. Mark your goods. If they turn up at the pawn shops, find them, report them! Hopefully, my attempts at protecting my laptop via software and so forth will bring some of our things home. At this point, however, it’s only waiting.

It’s not a happy wait, either.

  1. That’s really bad news. I really feel for you. Did you have house insurance?

  3. Oh man, I am so, so sorry that you’re having to deal with that. What a horrible thing to happen 😦

    I have my fingers crossed that you get your stuff (or at least some of it) back.
