Break-in update

It's now almost 12 hours since the burglary. The bad guys broke in using a crowbar to pry the door open. The also got our ex-landlord/neighbor, Mr. Tree. He lost the same kind of stuff as we did, including his keys.

We are in full recovery mode here. All credit cards are canceled with replacements on the way. Our locks have been changed and we now have a new car. Quite a nice coincidence that we were scheduled for a new lease car today. I brought the old one in and explained that one key was stolen and the Ford garage took it with no problems. Mr. Tree had a good laugh about that - he thought it was funny that we have our keys stolen and then immediately get a new car. He asked if we could get one for him too!

We are relieved that only replaceable stuff was taken. It's interesting thinking about what they didn't take. Carla's laptop, my nice watch, our car, our neighbors BMW???? I cant figure why they would take the car keys and not the cars. Maybe they are planning to come back? It's easy to understand why people own guns.

Next step is to go to the Polizei station to give them a full list of what was stolen and pictures of the big stuff. Tomorrow we go to apply for new licenses. Ugh.
