So sorry that has happened to you, be careful, you don't want to walk in on them.
When I was in nursing school
, I lived with my sister and we were robbed 3 times. The last time, they took a camera that my sis used to take pics at my pinning. About a month later, the cops show up at the school and wanted to know if anyone had been robbed recently. I told them that I had. After they caught the guys who did it, along with tons of stolen goods, they developed the pics and blew up the patch that we wore on our sleeve and it brought them to the school. There were 5 houses robbed that week, some of our stuff was recovered.
It is a horrible feeling to get robbed, you almost feel like you have been raped. We did have some of my mom's jewelry taken. They even took our console tv during one of the thefts. Nobody saw a thing.
My sis sold the house in 1997, and from what I here, it is still going on, especally after Katrina, the area was hit hard and the rebuilding brought out the thugs.
Please be safe!
