Theft procedures catch reader off guard

Posted: Wednesday, May 09, 2007

On May 3 between 4 and 8 a.m., someone broke into my car that was parked in my driveway and stole my laptop computer, movies and other things that were in the bag with it. I would not have known it at 8 a.m. if the Visa verification fraud department had not called wanting to know if I had tried to make some purchases online.

So I did as any other citizen would do and called the troopers. I waited for a trooper to call me back only to be told they would send me a police report to fill out because there was no suspect.

Is it not their job to find a suspect?

So I made my way over to the trooper station got the police report, filled it out and now I have to take it back so it will be filed in a timely manner.

I also contacted the pawn shops, etc. Everything that we pay taxes for the troopers to do, and I am out almost $5,000 worth of computer and movies, etc.

What a wonderful welcome home from a vacation.
