It's a real shame. It happens everywhere. I can understand someone who is hungry stealing food but beyond that it is out-of-hand.
It's just a wild guess here up I would think the person(s) who went after this high end system wasn't J. Wellington Wimpy whose sole purpose there was to obtain a free hamburger.
I doubt they even bothered looking into the fridge.
The 2nd time I got broke in and had my home ransacked, the meatballs took a half drank fifth of Seagrams 7 that was sitting on the counter yet left behind a fresh half gallon of Crown Royal (an X-mas present to me from me
) that was sitting on the top shelf of my fridge. That alone told me two things, they weren't there trying to find something to eat,,,, and they had no class.
Yet they had enough time to cut most every AC cord on the house along with knifing the furniture & curtains and irinating on the carpet.
Yes, I stand by my 1st post, unless I'm given the opportunity to have some time with them alone, face to face,, then they can keep their wrist (for all the good it'll do them). I never did find out who broke into my home both times, neither did the cops, and none of my possessions where ever recovered. I hope this story has a happier ending,,, but don't bet on it.
Crime does infact pay the majority of the time in this country, even if you're caught. Seems you're apt to spend more time in jail for drugs than you are for B&E. Stop slapping these SOB's on the wrist when they're finally caught and take them off! It's not a logical solution in a civilized world but it sure as hell would nip the problem in the bud,,, I mean wrist.
