I feel for you. I know how it feels though. And don't count on the police to do anything.

My husbands truck got broken into, get this, right in front of the police station and a church. Stole over 1,000$ worth of collectible CD's, stole his tail gate, and stereo.

The police told us there is nothing they can do and will not be able to offer anything else except file it with the insurance company. Right, so that my premiums will go up more after filing the claim. Thanks, but no thanks!

That truly sucks tallaoulou.

My car got broken into a couple years back... The perp tried to get into the drivers door. Looked like he used a screwdriver and banged it into the keyhole... Obviously didn't work for him, but he screwed it up nonetheless. So he went around to the passenger's door AND TRIED THE SAME THING! Screwed up the lock on that side also... Finally, he must have got frustrated and just broke the window.... I had nothing in my car but a jacket that I had bought 5 years ago on a clearance rack at the Gap for about $30... It dawned on me why he broke in to steal it, it actually looked like a leather jacket from 5 feet away. I didn't even have a radio in the car! I filed a police report, and the cop pretty much said I was wasting my time, without using those exact words. I got an estimate on my car.... $350 to fix all. $350 so the scumbag could steal a jacket that he could probably hock for about $5! I didn't want to file an insurance claim, because I was on the verge of getting dropped by my insurance co. anyway.... I fixed the window, because that was fairly cheap. I didn't fix the locks... So for 2 years, I had to crawl in through my hatchback everytime I wanted to get in my car... Because I coudn't unlock the doors!

So I guess its a good thing I may have accidently left the doors unlocked.. A broken window would probably cost more than the stereo.

One of the most interesting things was the cds. The moron didn't take any of our cds. Whats up with that. My musical tastes aren't good enough for the local crackhead.

And what's up with the mess? So you need money for crack or whatever.....why do you have to throw my crap all around. Can't you go through the car neatly and place everything you don't want back in its place where you found it.

And shouldn't you have like tools of the trade or whatever. My stereo would have came out quite nicely with a flashlight and a screwdriver. Hell if you woke me up I would have came out and removed it for ya, rather than have my dash torn up. It looks like a monkey beat on it till the stereo finally surrendered along with the whole front dash.

LOL! If only thieves were civilized

A few years ago someone tried to break into my husbands car, couldn't get the door open. There wasn't any thing in it, so we assumed they were going to try and steal the car. I almost wished they had gotten the door open and tried to start the car. The battery had been dead for a LONG time

It wasn't done by a professional, that's for sure. Most crimes like that, where they are so stupid they can't figure out how to break into a car, is usually done, by someone who:

Has only done it once or twice.
Desperate and needs money quick for drugs.
Or already high, they can't remember how.

Either way, they should all be shot. Get a job and stop sucking the life out of us hard working, tax paying citizens!!

Oh wait here is the absolute kicker........ I don't know whether to laugh or cry but I just finished cleaning up the mess he made out of my car and apparently he left a gift.

Payment for the stereo and cell phone???

In the passanger seat floor (underneath all the papers that were in my glove compartment) was a foster farms turkey (stuffed toy). WTF?

I can only assume he left it as a thank you. My kids were fighting over who gets to keep it only I'm not so sure they should even play with it on account of how we got it from a crackaddict and alll, LOL

Maybe the that's all he could find in the last car he robbed so when he found my stereo he was like "SCORE! I guess I can get rid of this foster farms turkey now!"

My car window got busted in and nothing was stolen but the cop still came out and wrote a report.
Also, he said if something was stolen they would have taken pictures and finger prints

This past week, on my dads birthday AND fathers day no less, my dad's truck got broken into and after everything was said and done.. whoever stole two cases of tools and some checks (but not my sisters camcorder?)... and to be able to work he had to go out the next day and drop about a $1000 for new tools

man that sux, police have to many rights...
I think 90% of them are on a power trip.
My ex's sister was seeing one, and I couldn't figure out why her parents always had a dark attitude towards me...Turns out there was a warrant out for my arrest for breech of bail and he had downloaded it off the main pc and was showing everyone...Bit like a doctor talking about his patients with everyone...
They all knew it was highly illegal but hey, they wouldn't want to charge an "officer"

If you find him just tell him to come break into my van. I might be tried by 12 but he'd be carried by 6. I'm what you would consider one of those armed and extremely dangrous rednecks, got a gun where ever I can reach and ready to protect my life and property. My wife even has orders to shoot through the door if someone is trying to break in.

Oh and BTW it was probally meth, not crack. Meth is cheaper to make. Whta in the world would you want to put draino in your body, or heat, or some of that other stuff? Man those people are stupid.

Yea, once they arrested you, you should have said "he knew about it and was helping me hide" .
