That really sucks.  Hopefully they continue their dumb habits and the stuff will eventually be returned to you via the police or pawn shops.

Oh my gosh!  I’m so sorry.  Do you have renters insurance?

reherring, im really sorry to hear about this…hopefully they are able to find your computer and send those idiots to jail!!

I know this probably doesnt help at all right now, but going forward, whenever you find inspiration pictures, email them to yourself…A month after we got engaged our computer crashed and all files were lost, including our guest list (i still think till this day, I still forgot a couple of people from the original list!!!)..So now, I keep my list on google instead of an excel spreadsheet. And whenever I see something I love, I email it to myself and keep it in a Wedding folder within my email…(this also keeps files off your computer, and those files that need to be kept hidden from the FI, like your wedding dress pics!)

OMG I’m SO sorry! That’s absolutely horrible. What a total and complete violation!

Our office was broken into (the guy was running out when I came in that morning, through a different door – scary!) and he took my work laptop, which had most of my wedding stuff on it and I hadn’t backed up either. It’s horrible to rebuild all of that but at least you’re all safe!!!  HUGS to you!

OMG, that sucks. Do you still have the beer bottles? Maybe they can do DNA/finger print tests on them and see if they’re in the system? Or maybe I’ve been watching too much Law & Order…

either way, I’m SO sorry this happened to you! Thank god nothing happened to your kitty. I would be devastated if someone broke into our loft, and absolutely heartbroken if anything happened to any of our puppies.

@Rainbow, honestly, they don’t do much when you’ve had a robbery. The cops said that it was more a formality on their part to be there and file paperwork, because they’d probably never catch the guy (even though we had him on camera – but not very clearly) or recover the computers. It really sucks.

Wow you got him on camera and they still can’t do anything?  That would be so tragic, I would talk to pawn shops in the area and hopefully your computer will show up!!  I’m so sorry this happened to you!!

Oh my gosh!  That REALLY stinks.  I’m so sorry you’re facing such a major setback.  Backing up is so important, and yet, so rarely done.

Best of luck getting back on track.

The Hive is here to help find those missing bookmarks, inspiration photos, etc.  Be sure to use us!

The same EXACT thing happened to me in November.  They took my laptop and all of our small electronics.  I still have the urge to kick my own *ss for not backing up my info.  I was most upset about the irreplaceable things, like my class ring and the charm necklace my family has given me a charm for every year of my life.  It still hurts thinking about that.  It feels like a huge violation, not to mention a financial hit.  I’m hyper vigilant now, I don’t trust anything, it sucks.  I’m really sorry it happened to you.  I’d suggest getting renter’s insurance if you haven’t already.  We didn’t until the day after we were robbed.  It only costs us $18 a month, all the more reason to kick myself.  I’m really sorry again.
