I know some of you have went through this too, my son came home yesterday afternoon to a busted open back door, dog locked in a bedroom, TV downstairs missing and my wife and my bedroom was totalling trashed.
We are still making the list, but in general she lost almost all her jewelry, my 2 shotguns and .22 rifle, LED tv, WII game, money, and worst was our small suitcase type safe. It had all out birth certificates, SS cards, vehicle titles, antique coins and other irreplaceable items. I will be spending a lot time on phone today with credit bureaus, banks, CC companies. We have no evidence but think we know who did it (relative)from certain things that was stolen and our Boxer who was running in the house knew him. He also knew layout of the house so knew what to hit quick.
We know the exact time, when they busted the door, they knocked the battery clock off the wall and battery fell out. My son arrived home exactly 15 mins later and we think he scared them off since he was backing trailer in our side drive, he wouldn't have been able to see anyone on that side of house or in drive. There were patches in gravel by garage where they tore out of there in a hurry.
Very frustrating and just makes you feel very vulnerable in your own home. I have looked into cameras but never purchased. We may be looking into a security system also.
Here is the busted door frame, our bedroom,
And last pic is temporary repair until we can replace door or frame, steel flat bar up the door frame.

One of the reason we moved from Ohio my mom had cousins that was druggies and they broke into our house and stole everything. Most of them are dead (overdose) or in jail now.

It's a shame anyone has to endure this!                ​

Marty, I hope you can find out who is doing this to Y'all. We never found out who broke into our shop and got us for over $20,000 in tools and equipment. Make sure you take your time on the list and you will still find stuff 6 months from now that's missing and didn't make the list. Get on of the Security systems that uses cameras along with closure switches and you can get alerts sent to your mobile phone in real time now. With the dogs in the house, you won't be able to use motion sensors.

 

PRAYING for Y'all and the investigators on the case!!

 

 

p.s., I rotated your photos for you.

Nice repair on the door jam, you may want to back it up outside with a plate and use carriage bolts thru the jam with the blind heads on the outside. Maybe they will break their foot trying to kick it open next time!!

That's awful. No good for nuthins that do that to people. And you can't do much, because you'd be the one in trouble.

That's truly unfortunate and very difficult to prevent when a familiar suspect makes you their target..

You might want to let the perp know via the grapevine that there is a fuzzy pic from the neighbor's security camera and that if all your stuff shows up in the next 24 hours, the pic won't be looked at by the experts.

Or something to that effect.

Sorry to hear that you got hit.

The druggies and idiots figure that family won't prosecute if they are caught. When you do, the rest of the family thinks that you are the bad guy. Overdoses are a self administered solution to a bad problem. Good Luck, Rick

I am sorry you had to go through this.  We had an overnight break in while I was away and the future-wife was home.  We were in the middle of moving and I left her a rifle (M1a1) and loaded mag while I drove most of the stuff to our new home.  She used it to confront the scum-bag and make him leave. [she went anti-gun for years afterwards b/c she realized how close she came to killing someone while defending herself].   The old place didn't feel as home-like afterwards . . .. and made the move easier.

 

Contact the Credit Cards companies and credit reporting agencies to advise them of possible identity theft issues so no new loans/cards in your name. 

 

Experian 888-397-3742 - often will notify the 2 below for you
