Been Burgled: Police

Saturday 29th, August 2009. Spent the whole night as sleep downstairs because the kitchen’s door could not be shut properly, so just in case, and the only thing one could do was to sleep in the living room, the last glanced at the clock said 02:45.

Got up later than usual, went through the normal routine (making a bottle for Matt and so on), once the ‘routine’ ran it course I was ready to go to the police station (via some other errands for Gio). Luckily or unluckily this wasn’t the first time we’ve been burgled, the last time was back in May of 2007, so I already knew where the police station was…

This time was different, back in 2007, the bugler came through the toilet’s window while we were as sleep so they had stayed on the ground floor and only minor things were taken (I was pissed because they took my trainers and tools), but this time no one was in the house and the feeling of them having ‘free time’ especially in our bed room is leaving me with a some real anger.

What made it worst, was the time they had to try to get into our home, we have installed railings on all the windows and doors after the first break in, so the house was much more secure, but this break in made me realised, as long as they have ‘time’ all the railings were useless.

IMG_6529They tried a couple of windows first, that was useless, the railing did their job, but then they attacked door (leading into the kitchen), it must have taken them a good half hour or more… and no one saw or heard them! The housing security people were/and still are useless…

The whole process at the police station must have taken less than 30 minutes, basically they took down my account of what happened, what were taken and that was it. The last time someone came to the house and took away finger prints, this time nothing… We waited until around midnight then began to tidy up the house…

I am guessing here, the reason no additional team came to take away finger prints could be because of another burgled case, in the next housing area where they had lost slightly more than a camera, watches, iPod and etc… Apparently they had lost somewhere around the 2 mill… OMG! I do hope they get everything back…
