    So yesterday after getting off from work and getting to my front door I notice that it's slightly open. Well as you can guess from that scene I was burgled .

    Yup. Thank god for renter's insurance. They took a a few dvds, cd, some jewelery, ate some of my food and and made off with $200 dollars I had stashed for emergencies. Funny thing is that my place didn't even look ransacked. It looked nearly exactly the same as I had left it minus the big crack in the door frame they had put in and the smashed lock. From the looks of it they used a flatbar and just went to town on my door.

    Called the cops and surprisingly enough they were at my place pretty quick. They wiped the door for prints and I had to give them my report along with my information for where I work and all that jazz. I know how a case number and they will promptly look into the matter. I had to buy a new door and installed it myself (landlord deducted it from rent) and then went shopping today for some pepper spray, and metal bat, motion sensor lights for outside my door and nice security system.

    On the plus side things could've been worse so I am grateful that nothing too serious happened or was stolen/broken.

    Has anyone else ever had this happen them and if so how did you cope with being violated like this.?

    Nothing was ransacked? It could have been someone you know. If your cash was well hidden, then that might be a clue.

    I would recommend getting one of those spy cameras and just hiding it somewhere in your residence. If this happens again, then you'll at least have a picture of the thieves.

    Glad to hear you're ok.

    That's just it. I don't allow people into my place so I'm fairly confident that it wasn't anyone that I know.

    Coincidentally, my neighbors also had a break in as well. One of my neighbors has a dog and so that apparently scared the thieves but you can see where they attempted to break in with the flat bar.

    I should get one of those nanny cam that hid in teddy bears and get a system for outside my door as well.

    So violating isn't it?

    My house has been broken into four times. It's actually kinda fun replacing things that many times. Have at it!

    Sorry to hear what happened. I am often fearful of someone breaking into my mine place (luckly it hasnt happened). Too bad the food they ate wasn't poisoned.

    That sucks man, dont get too paranoid about it, things happen.

    I've had 2 vehicles and my home broken into. The biggest hassle was cleaning up the house after the police finished their dusting for fingerprints. Didnt really feel violated at all. Most thieves that burgle houses know that most people hide valuables in generally the same places. Jewelery in the Master Bedroom, cash in the freezer or under the mattress, etc. They are in and out very quickly, alarms deter but very rarely lead to apprehension.

    We lost a few watches, cologne, xbox and a PS2.... the bag they hauled the loot in was my gym bag and had one of my wallets in it, that pissed me off because they unknowingly had a bonus. The police believed it was teenagers looking for cash and booze.

    Oh yeah, funny story....

    A client I know had her house broken into. They pounded a hole through the roof while she was on vacation. Stole everything they could fit into her Jagaur and drove off in it. Mexico's not that far.

    I literally walked in and said "WHAT THE FUCK" when I noticed my door was open or rather broken.

    Too bad I didn't come home and catch the person in action. i would've given him my own "justice" and if he was cute i might've made them work it off. LOL.
