    Robbed!

    Just went to grab my laptop and realized it was not where I left it, started looking around and realized my DVD player, echo weed eater and leaf blower are missing too! Just filed a report and I guess I'm looking for a new place to live because my wife is really scared and I don't blame her. The stuff doesn't bother me near as much as the feeling that someone came into my house.

    That's terrible, I'm always sorry to hear about burglary happening to anyone.

    The problem is - where are you going to move to that's any better? I'm still looking for that place.

    I've never had my house robbed but my van was. I can imagine that's not a very comforting feeling, I remember one night I thought someone was in my house it was nerve racking because I couldn't get to a gun or any weapons, turned out a jacket fell off the hook lol.

    The laptop should be a concern. Did you store passwords on it. All they need is one which can lead access to others. I would go to local Pawn shop and ask if the police questioned if any body pawned your laptop. If he say's no go on cell and call the department in front of broker. He might say what kind was it. Oh that one I thought you said Etc;;;;. Pawn broker apply for licenses less paper work more likely renewal.

    If You had your email passwords saved that can be helpful. Before you change passwords look at activity details. All you need is for them to log on and you have a ip address. Than go to Police with that and show them a website called whois

    Here's an example. (half my ip) Unfortunately I really can't see the police putting your lost as a priority. Im sure they didnt even ask You for your email address.

    I had my house broken into twice. The first time they picked my locks, the house was all locked up when they left. The only things they took was a key to my motorcycle (which I left in the bike under a cover) and the garage door remote which was in my car in the garage. I only use my car on the weekends usually but luckilly it was the company christmas party that evening. I then put unpickable locks on the house and lojack on the bike and had it rekeyed. Months later they threw a rock through a back window. Grabbed a new laptop and some random stuff. I then put an alarm on the house. One week after that my van, but only got the gps.

    My neighbors were also having random stuff from around the outside of their house stolen.

    I knew hwo did it, a couple 20ish y/o kids who lived in a gov assisted house down the street. I would see them walking around alot. They have sence moved out but if I wouldnt get in trouble, I would have kicked in their door and taken my stuff back. I bet if I did that and proved that they did break into my house I would still be arrested. Sad when criminals have more rights then the honest man.

    And yes, im planning on moving soon.

    Sorry to hear about that. Don't keep your passwords in plain text on your computer. If you gotta keep them, use a password wallet like Keepass (available on all major platforms like Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, Iphone) and use a strong password for that one.
