Yesterday morning (7/15/04) my mother-in-law took our car to Home Depot. Since she figured it would just be a short trip she left the garage door open. My wife and 10 month old daughter were still at home.
About 10:45 my wife heard noise outside. Initially she thought it was the garbage men but then she realized that it was coming from inside our garage. She went to investigate and when she opened the door she found three young men burglarizing our garage. They had pulled their truck in and were loading it up.
My wife confronted them calmly, telling them that they really did not want to do what they were doing and that it was foolish and asked them to please stop and give everything back. She says that they were very startled and looked a little scared at having been discovered. The three of them jumped into their truck and pulled away. As they left my wife followed on foot and got the license plate number.
A report has been filed with the Police Department and they have informed us that they ran the tag number and the truck is not stolen so it is very likely that the owner of the truck or someone they know was involved in the burglary.
Some people really suck
