What a way to start the new year part 2...
Apparently our storage unit wasn't the only thing to get broken into. Yesterday, we went around looking at everyone elses locks in our community. Lo and behold, about 6 others had been clipped or ripped off the door. Our friends upstairs (refer to part 1) also got camping equipment and some other things stolen. Walking by my car on our way up the stairs, I noticed my car seat was all the way laying down. Looking closer I realized, once again, it had gotten broken into. Again, they attempted to steal the stereo, but couldn't. They took the faceplate, my car charger, some Cd's, and everything out of the glove box and console which wasn't anything per say, just lots of papers, car and insurance papers. Luckily, the accused were smarter and got in without actually breaking my window, which I'm very grateful for. We called the police, and of course, they just filed a case, but nothing can really be done. This morning I got in my car to go to work and it wouldn't start, didn't even turn over or make a sound. I didn't have time to look at anything under the hood, not that I would notice if anything looked askew, so I took Ryan's car to work. My bet is they stole something from the engine. We are so frustrated. This is the 5Th time in a year that we've been victims of break-ins/burglary. Our association pretty much doesn't care and says the door is our responsibility. Don't worry, we'll be at the next meeting.
