Just found out from the swmbo that our apartment was broken into, I'm pissed off cause I'm not in the country to be able to do anything. the bastards took the wii, the ps3, games, movies, and my wifes wedding ring. the kicker............we live on the second floor!? they didn't touch the $1200 worth of brewing equipment I just ordered and had shipped there everything is just material items though, I'm most pissed about the ring because of the sentimental value of that.

Yeah that does suck.

Cruise the pawn shops in the area over the next few days and look for the ring, even if the owner claims to not know whom sold it too him, nor care, at least you might be able to buy your own ring back.

that's what I suggested she do. we got serial numbers for the game systems jacked so if those pop up, then hopefully the ring will be there too. between the systems and the police report, they should hand the ring over as well, but if not I'd be willing to pay the money for it back.

Getting things stolen sucks, sadly this thing happens time to time. Best thing to do in the mean time is to concentrate on other things and try to keep your mind off of it and do the pawn shop patrols, hopefully you'll get that ring back along with everything else.

Watch Craig's list too.

I had my garage broken in to about a month ago. They got a **** load of hand and power tools, lawn equipment, and two nice mountain bikes. Funny, I had my beer fridge in the the garage at the time. They didn't bother with the three kegs in there. You'd have thought they would have at least taken them for the stainless. Glad they didn't. Totally sucks though. Good luck.

that's what I would've thought too. I mean I just got 2 15 gallon and a 20 gallon blichmann brewpots, nice big shiny stainless steel. I guess they weren't that professional or they would've walked off with that and a few other things. I guess if any brewing equipment ever turns up missing you might find them on here we're the only ones that realize the value of some of that stuff I guess.

Some one I was friends with, a contractor, came home to find some guys he'd fired a couple weeks prior stealing his tools & new tv. Everybody jumped into cars and went on a high speed chase with his son in the car. Luckily his son survived the crash, but he didn't...as Gila said, best to let insurance handle it.
Had my cd collection stolen a couple years back...was like I lost a piece of me that day.

Ditto on Gila's post. I make sure to take pictures of anything over a couple hundred dollars along with a closeup detailed picture of the model number and serial number labels. I hope you get your wedding ring back. Tell your wife to stop taking it off while you're out of the country
