So I'm sure after the last post you want some more info about our car getting broken into. Well, here's the story...with illustrations.
Sunday, February 18, 2007
Ryan and I drive to church in two separate cars because Ryan usually has to leave right after sacrament meeting to go to work. On sunday he did just that except he didn't leave for work. Sitting in Sunday School ryan gets me out of class because "you need to see this....." We go outside to the car and there is glass everywhere. Someone has broken the passenger front window and stolen Ryan's wallet. We think they were aiming for the stereo, and got a bonus. The face plate was on the floor, and the whole console had been wripped out. Luckily, my dad did such a great job installing it, they were unable to get the stereo, but after all this, we wish they just had. Because they wripped our the stereo's console the tray underneath came out with it. Ryan's wallet was in it, so they grabbed it and left. We assume they got seen or spooked and ran because of the time restraint. Some members from the previous ward who were leaving were coming back inside the church to report when Ryan met up with them. The burglar must have known the church schedule and knew he only had about an hour window, between 1:00 and 2:00. We're truly blessed that Ryan had to leave early because if he hadn't, the fellow would have had 3+ hours to spend our money instead of just 1. We immediately called the cops from the church where they said they don't send a cop over because there would be too many prints. What?!! That's dumb, but besides that, we got everything reported and then cancelled our cards. One of the credit card companies told us that there had been a $1 purchased that day, but after looking at our statement it seems the person spent about $25 at the Chevron also. Who knows? Ryan spent the rest of the time sweeping up glass and taking pictures for our insurance company.
A couple weeks before this the H's on the front and back of the same car were taken at our apartment. we're suspicious that it might have been the same person and that they knew our car and our schedule. why would someone be after us?
Because we live in such a "shady" place, and we had no window, Ryan didn't want to chance leaving our car at our apartment overnight, so we drove down Sunday night to my parent's house and left it there. We ended up spending the night and the next morning Ryan and my dad switched the window from Toni's identical, broken honda, to ours. Vwala! Problem solved.
We know that we live in the Ghetto and that there are over 600 registered sex offenders in our vicinity. It's scary, we know, but we're stuck here, at least for another 6 months. Please be safe!
