I had my purse stolen from my den and a walnut wooden carved Italian jewelry box with wood inlaid flowers stolen from my bedroom last Thursday evening at approximately 5:30 p.m. in broad daylight.
The usual things stolen from the purse were my checks and two credit cards. My Go phone was stolen, too. But I had bills in there, too, so luckily the Huntington Bank has a live person to report the incident to in the middle of the night. A Warren City policeman came about 2 a.m.
The jewelry box had a lot of costume jewelry in it - but my passport was stolen too. Now it is a federal offense.
All around me the various neighborhoods have had numerous break-ins. Eleven in one neighborhood close to me. People are in the house while someone takes something from the garage, or, they break in and the only way the people figure it out is the stuff missing.
These creeps are getting bolder because no one seems to care. The next break-in, if the people are at home, may end tragically.
It is the weekend, so after calling and canceling everything, I have started to look at flea markets and pawn shops.
The stuff taken must have a value for someone. I will let the feds take care of the fraud part of my loss. They were able to get the last one for me. And I did testify.
Here we go again. A one-man operation locally. You can't tell me someone hasn't seen these creeps.
When is the public going to say, enough?
