Break-in while in storage

I stopped to check the trailer this noon and foundthe front window smashed and the interior totally trashed. Every drawer and cabinet was emptied on the floor.

Very little was taken, although I need to go back tomorrow to more thoroughly inventory. I know that my netbook computer is missing along with some small stuff. The TV was wrenched crooked, but they couldn't get off the wall without allen wrenches. There is a white scar in the viewing area that is distracting.

This is in a fenced storage yard with lights and video cameras. Threee men in hoodies were seen running from the yard.

My toolbox was in the trailer and untouched, about the only thing not dumped on the floor. They took the $300 netbook, but they opened the case on my $800 projector and then left it there. They opened the case on my torque wrench and didn't take it. Two binoculars were in one ofthe chairs with the cases open.

They also destroyed the door lock trying to get out. They apparently didn't realize that the lock was thrown and forced the handle up so that it finally opened, but the lock no longer works. I have just the deadbolt on it at the moment.

Im soo sorry. I often wondered who is responsible if something happens to your trailer while in storage. Im sure the storage lot will say they arent responsible. Does that mean insurance will cover personal contents as well as the repairs of the break in? I think I need to review my policy and make sure im properly covered.

re: what the took and didn't, and what they were too dumb to figure out:

I've been telling myself since a break-in in New Orleans when I was in grad school that if they weren't stupid, they'd find a better way to spend their time. They took a crappy VCR, took a portable CD player but left the pricey Bose Acoustic Wave it was plugged into (that belonged to a friend of mine)... stole a few CDs, but didn't just pick up the rolltop storage boxes the CDs were in, they took handfuls.

They're just scum or they wouldn't be doing that.

Sorry to hear that as well.

Did they just hit your trailer or were others in the yard broken into?

I agree... entirely too quick. Towing sounds good... down a gravel road perhaps.

Ouch, I'm sorry, that's awful But why didn't the storage yard notify you? You had to stop by and discover it yourself???

I really hope they figure out who did it.

So sorry that you have to go through this. You figure that it is in a locked, fenced storage area with video surveillance, so you will be ok. Wrong. I agree with the others. These people are just scum.

I hope that they get caught and that you have insurance. I don't have insurance to cover this loss, so I would be doubly devastated.

Dan
