  • Yes it has, years ago. My mother's purse was stolen, and it was found on the side of a road, empty of course. Nothing else was taken, but all ID and other cards had to be replaced. The thief was never caught.
  • Yes, many times but never caught.
  • Me, luckily no. My co-worker's house has been broken into three times, the first time one of their guns was used in a shooting so that's how they found the burglers. The dumb-a--s still had pawn tickets and some of the items in their car from the string of houses they broke into. The second and third time my co-worker and her family tracked down the thieves! One time it was someone just outside the neighborhood, they saw their 4-wheeler on the persons side porch. The next time they actually helped bust a chop shop. I think they are in the wrong field of work. And live in the wrong neighborhood!
  • Back when I wasn't married yet and still lived at home... we all got home at the end of the day to see that someone had been in our house. It turned out the police were the ones who had been in there - I guess they searched the house because there was a criminal seen in our area or backyard or wherever... The police left a note I think. While us kids were scared that there was a criminal on the loose, my mom was most upset that the police saw her messy house! :)
  • Someone was trying to get into our house, he got through the first lock but the chain was still latched, he was met with a shotgun and asked if he needed some help. *edit He took off, the police wasn't called, but should have been.
  • Yes it has and NO they did not
  • No break ins that I know about. The only thing of any value to me are my beloved cats.
  • The day I had a 65" HDTV delivered, two men were watching it all from there car. I had told my hubby about it and said we better watch out because they weren't scoping for nothing. The next day I took my son to the doctors and came home to my front door kicked in. I called the cops to go in before I to make sure no one was still around. Nothing was missing but it had me worried they were casing the joint and will be back later. We were paranoid for a long time after that. My husband wouldn't let me leave the house unless someone was here. He was afraid his beloved TV would be gone. Now he sits on it so much I wish they would have gone off with it.
  • Yes and No. And what I miss most, years later, is not the watches and jewelry, money etc they stole but the journals I kept of two years of my life in Asia : (
  • Yes, And no the cops never did find him. one of the reasons I believe in self reliance.
  • Our van was broken into. No, they never found the guys that did it. We were really loaded up with all sorts of things, too. They took almost all of our clothes and all my husband's tools. OUr stereo. We had been traveling and carrying all sorts of things for the trip:-(
  • Our house was broken into when I was a teenager. The police didn't even try to catch the thieves, even though a trail of stolen coins stretched across the back yard to the fence of the neighbouring property and ours was the third house backing onto that one which had been robbed! Moreover, my mother, not realising who had done it, spoke to the sisters of the boys. The girls said they had seen coins scattered all over the road nearby. Now mum had passed these girls on the way home and waved at them. So mum asked them why they didn't pick the coins up and they said because one had a bad knee. The next day, my brother's christening mug was thrown into our yard...
  • No. I hope I didn't just jinx myself.
  • Yes, twice, and the cops acted like it didn't even matter both times. The first time, there was a key in the floor next to the window they came in through(the crooks), that wasn't mine. So I thought i had this great piece of evidence. When the cops got there I showed it to them and one of them picked it up and stuck it in his pocket and never mentioned it again. My opinion is that they don't care enough to TRY to catch the burglars, or they probably could.
  • yes they even stole gard dog witch i was frightned of took police three days to attend
  • My home was broken into a month ago. The dirt bag managed to cut my phone line and entered through a sliding door that he broke. He though he got away little did he know that i had a wire security camera that recorded the whole thing. The police recognized the crook from the pics and arrested him a few days later. I would recommend this cool little product. goto http://safehomepro.com
  • My house was broken into last year. Four men came in with guns (I was in the bath) they tied me and my family up and threatened to kill us. They stayed for an hour and a half, and took everything we had. The cops were stationed one block away, and when we phoned, they said they didn't have a vehichle. They never caught them.
  • Hmmmnn! Many times over. However someone was eventually caught. A different set of officers took him away and investigated. The ones who disbelieved me should have believed me when I told them about the series of entries, and things that my neighbours at the time were doing
  • YES THEY COME IN THE TRAP DOOR IN THE ROOF AT NIGHT OR AT DARK, I WENT TO SEE THE SOUTH BEND, POLICE DEPT PERSONALLY. THEY SAID THEY'D TAKE CARE OF IT. SO THEY TOLD EVERYONE IN TOWN THAT THEIR GOING TO PARK A CRUISER IN MY AREA FOR ONE DAY. THEY DID, NOTHING HAPPENED THAT DAY, AFTER THAT THE ROOFERS STARTED COMING IN EVERY NIGHT AFTER THAT AND NOW THEY PUT TRAP DOORS IN THE FLOOR AND USE THEM. THEY HATE CATS AND HAVE ILLEGALLY OPERATED ON ONE CAT. WE'VE FOUND THAT THE ROOFERS ARE NEO-NAZI'S AND ARE INFILTRATED IN THE WHOLE NORTHWEST. SO BEWARE OF ROOFING COMPANIES THAT PUT ILLEGAL TRAP DOORS IN YOUR ROOFS, USUALLY ONE STORY, SO THEY CAN COME BACK AT NIGHT FOR WHATEVER.
