    We were burglerized early this a.m. Bikes stolen from the garage (how the heck did they get the garage door UP??) Went thru our car (no $$-ha ha on them!) They did come into the kitchen (while we were sleeping! the NERVE) and there was my purse in plain sight. BYE BYE purse... Police found it about an hour after we reported. Thankfully all was there except for several hundred dollars..... Moral: keeping my purse in my closet, never carrying cash again, leaving the check books @ home unless I KNOW I'll need them, making copies of all important things (DL, CC #'s, anything that would need to be replaced), putting dead bolts on man door from garage to kitchen and man door from outside to garage, locking the car IN the closed garage and not leaving anything of value in sight. Funny tho! my laptop, 2 cell phones, 2 digital cameras, a VHF radio and a digital GPS were sitting right NEXT to my purse... They have since been moved to another room, out of sight. I am sooooo glad to have my purse contents back but I WILL find out who did this. Police seem to think it was kids. We live in a gated village with 24 hour guard service. So, burglers must LIVE in the villaage cause there is NO WAY anyone can get in without the guards knowing... Be careful with your valuables....

    The nerve! Sorry this happened to you. I always made fun of my hubby for locking the car in a locked garage. He always makes sure the garage/dining room door is locked. I call it fort knox. I hate it when he is right. ;)

    First off I want to say that I am so happy to hear that you and your family are physically unharmed (((HUGS)))

    Thank you for sharing this with us, and reminding us all to check our homes for security issues too.
    I hope they find the culprits and soon!!

    The mailbox?? Seriously?

    We were robbed by our neighbors son. Yea, know what your thinking... Teenage delinquent. No, he was 36 at the time.

    I wouldn't have thought to put a deadbolt on the garage/house door. Would think with the garage shut, the house would be safe.
    Sorry this happened to you. for me it wasn't the stuff they stole, it was my sense of security. Knowing someone was in my house, and there was nothing I could do about it. I was jumpy for a while.
    don't put off adding those security features. Our guy came right back 3 days later, but couldn't get in the second time.

    so glad you're okay. When I was growing up, my mom always kept her purse in her bedroom when we were in the house. Now I understand why!

    I have heard about locking the car inside a garage and securing the door leading into the house from the garage, though it's a good reminder to hear again for whenever I'm living in a place with a garage. For now, I'm in a town house and have off street parking just below my bedroom window, though I admit I don't always lock my car (but I don't usually leave anything in it).

    I'm so sorry this happend. Scarey though to think you were asleep in the another room.

    I always take my purse to my bedroom at night when I go to bed, especially if I know there is money in it. My sons are always giving me a hard time because even with 4 dogs I keep the front door locked when home alone. I told them have you never heard of home invasions, why make it easy for them.
