Well what the little scum b@gs didn't get the first time they came back for with a second round. Tried to kick in the kitchen door and after ruining it but failing to get in, they thru a brick thru the slider on the deck and carried the safe with the rest of the jewelry they had missed and we had locked up for "SAFE" keeping as well as birth certificates, social security cards and our basic identities etc and spare keys to the house, cars, tool box, for all 3 of us out the door AND worked my gun safe over enough to get their had into it and got a hand gun, *****suddenly the police are really interested....... Due diligence just isn't enough to keep the druggies out. This was done in broad daylight in a neighborhood with retired folks who are apt to be home and the houses are close enough to spit at. I guess one of us has to quit work, file for social security disability due to the stress of having the house broken into 2 times and stay home AND SHOOT THE BA$T@RD$ but now they have my pistol...... Who would have thought that they would come back a second time??? Will there be a 3rd visit????:wtf:

We had a friend with a summer place near here. After several break ins, they had to get a motion activated LAN camera. When it went off, it started recording. It also allowed them to check in any time while they were away but had access to a computer. They finally caught the little buggers. It ended up that one of them was a relative... Nephew I think. He pressed charges against all of them. They also got most of their stuff back.

Sorry to Hear that. I know if we were broken into my wife would have hard time staying there.

I hate that the police didn't seem interested until you mentioned a gun being taken.

Peter I am at a loss for words also other then I hope they catch the f'ing assholes that did this. If you or your family needs anything just ask.

I hope they can't get the safe open and cut their hand off trying.

You know this got me to thinking. With all of the identity thefts going has has there been any work being done help cut off social security numbers? Kind of like what you can do with your credit cards by reporting them stolen.

Bad thing is with the way the economy is theft is on the rise.

I hate to say it Peter but you might have to see about getting some sort of alarm system.

I am so used to leaving keys in the car and doors unlocked, times are changing even when you feel you are safe in your community.

We had a home break in about 20 years ago. The wife and I were both in the basement and heard loud banging at the back door. By the time we got upstairs they had broken the door open and took my wife's purse from the kitchen table. They never were caught. It does leave you with an uneasy feeling. You had much more taken so I sure hope they catch the scum bags.

Peter. Like so many others, I can't think of anything to say except that I'm sorry you had to endure this yet again! I hope that the bastards get what they deserve and shoot themselves in the leg with your gun trying to be gangsters. If it's any consolation, Shotguns are much better for home defense than pistols.

Thanks for the feed back/support guys, I just don't know, after the first round we made double sure doors/windows were locked, cars locked at night, valuables in a safe, guns locked away out of sight, it just didn't matter, they wanted in and came in and took what they wanted. There has been an upsurge in heroin in the area and it isn't pretty, talking with other folks it seems there have been a LOT of break-ins in the region recently, they gotta pay for the junk somehow...... a firearm in your hand when you are home is one thing but we gotta work for our living and now it seems others too..... that is what is hard to plan for.

I know it costs money per month to have the service but I would check in to having an alarm system put in. Like you said you both have to work and can't be home to protect the belongings. I would also find different hiding spots, places where stuff wouldn't be expected. I wish yas the best and like I said if there is anything we can do to help just let us know.
