My office was burglarized

So I awake this morning at 5 AM to my employer on the Nextel 2 way, telling me our office was broken into and my desk drawers are all pulled open. Which of course is a problem cause he knows I had about $4000.00 in one drawer(we were doing a cash job and it was to pay about 7 employees for last week). Well remarkably, the envelopes with the cash are sitting in the back of an open drawer, in plain sight, but the bright thieves didn't bother to see what was inside the envelopes. They did take our DSL modem and wireless routers(So I couldn't go online all day), left the computers, we figure they just grabbed small stuff easy to carry. The funny thing is they took my Eric Cartman talking pencil holder from my desk. World's smartest thieves...lets see should I take a boatload of cash or a 5 dollar South Park novelty toy? Definitely South Park. Also took some Stacker 3 diet pills from the receptionst's desk and a couple of magic markers.

Drugs are bad...mmmkay.

my department is so cheap, if this happened to me (and they actually stole things i mean), they probably wouldn't even replace my office supplies. that's what i get for working in the finance department i guess!

i can't believe they left the actual valuable stuff. all in all it sounds like they stole maybe a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff? i'm glad they didn't notice the money though, that's a miracle.

Some thieves broke into our car and stole 300 worth of stuff - a brand new Cd player and cd's. They wrecked the lock on the passengers side and left a hole in the door and that would have been 400 to fix so we just got a new lock for 50 but we can't use it. We have central locking so if they had of broken both locks as they tried to get in on the driverssidebut just scrtched the door it would have cost a lot of to fix. The thing is they pulled open the glove compartment to steal the cds and my mum had money and her credit card in there but they just lifted a whole stack of BeeGees/ Elvis cds.

We theorized that they stole the markers to try and get a buzz sniffing them, they're the big permanent markers with the fairly strong smell. Definitely sounds like the work of some local youths or desparate addict.

yikes...Idiot thieves are everywhere, it seems. My car was broken into last summer. The thief stole an old dirty shirt I'd worn to the gym, my car manual, left a.....special present on the back seat and took off, leaving electronics and valuables.

Sorry to hear this Hewson, it stinks to know someone went through your things like that.
