I started to walk back up to the house and clicked my car alarm. It beeped twice telling me a door was open. I figured Emil didn't close his passenger door all the way when he got out even though I was SURE I locked the car in the way inside. I went around to the passenger side to shut his door and this is what I saw.
Someone broke into my car. They went through everything! And threw papers everywhere. I freaked out and dialed 911. The time was 4:58 a.m. The police arrived about fifteen minutes later. CSI came around 7 and noticed that my neighbors garage was still open and several items were placed on the curb ready to be picked up! I heard the robbers in his garage! But it gets better!!! My neighbor has video cameras around her house so we pulled footage and this is what we saw...
This guy is on her driveway on the phone with someone and to the back left of him there is a silhouette of another person.
And this next photo was taken at the EXACT time I was walking to my car to get my glasses from my trunk.
He was standing by Janie's house looking straight at me walk to my car and then dial 911!!! He's wearing what looks like a Scream mask. I think they didn't take anything from Joe because I literally walked out in the middle of their robbery. They never expected that!
Today I'm taking these images to the police station. The thieves took my garage door opener so I suspect they will try to come back.
We lived in a good part of town in a gated neighborhood. We never expected something like this to happen!! It just goes to show you one can never be too sure. I was shaken up all Sunday and still feel nervous. I get butterflies in my stomach just to think what my car may look like when I go out in the morning.
So please, leave nothing in your car. Make sure you lock it well and park if possible in a well lit area or in your garage.
