Talk about a welcome to the neightborhood. We've lived here a little over a week and the Hubs' truck was broken into last night. I was so angry when I found out, I wanted to do a stake out this evening to see if the sorry bastard would return. He stole about 80 CD's and D's Nintendo DS. Luckily, he passed over the Hubs' key to unlock his rims and some other documentation in the center console that included personal information. Since removed.
Around noon the Hubs called the Deputy Sheriff's Dept. and put in a request to file a report. Shortly after, the sheriff stopped by to take down our report and informed us that they caught the guy. Can you believe it? Things like this usually get passed up with bigger cases but they were able to catch the guy. Apparently, there have been other reports in the area and during a drive through of the neighborhood, a police officer saw a suspicious vehicle and pulled him over. Cha-Ching!
The Hubs is on his way back from the police station WITH his CD case and D's Nintendo DS. The guy is in jail and is being charged with a felony because of priors and possible relation to a gang. The Sheriff said he could be lookin' at 5 years.
We'll be leaving Kouma outside from now on. At least we can have a little warning if a bad guy is lurking around the house. A rude reminder of the real world, outside the gates and armed soldier's of military grounds.
