Of All The Luck....

Last week my GF had her house broken into and various goods and several guns were taken. Now she is trying to find just where she put that spreadsheet with all the gun data to give to the police. A few days later the thieves cut the lock off the gate to the back yard and stole the new gun safe that was on the back porch waiting to go into the house. Timing is everything these days. Should she change her name to Lucky?
This really does tick me off. Of course the local pawn shops will do OK on the stolen goods.

Re: Of All The Luck....

Probably not luck - most likely someone has been and is probably still watching the house (along with many other houses as well.)

When I was a kid, they captured someone in our small town in the middle of a break in. On him, he had a list of addresses, names, "best times", etc. Our house was on it. Luckily for us he didn't make it to our house yet before he got busted.

Re: Of All The Luck....

One word....security cameras. Ok, 2 words.

Every one that comes up our driveway is being recorded, day and night. Front, rear and all sides of property. Some cameras are very visible, others hidden. I can get license plate numbers and faces of people. They may steal something, but they won't get away with it. If I happen to catch them in the act, well, we'll see.

The last perp got a bullet to the head. Ok, it was a raccoon that kept tearing down our bird feeders at night, but.....

'Nuff said.....

I'd be setting up a bait box next. Just to catch them on video. That is horrible. I hope they get the bastards and I hope as much as possible is returned.

No need. She should go full on Bernhard Goetz on these sons of bitches. Then she can be referred to as badass and/or hero.
