The Grinch Stole My TV
Was a week before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except for the louse.
Note: Slang definition of Louse = A mean or despicable person
My wife and I were out for a little shopping and our date night. When we come home, the back door is wide open. I walk into the living room, and see a huge gaping hole in the wall where our plasma TV was.
Being “smart” criminals, they stole the TV but left the external electronics box that runs the TV. The plasma we had was an older 2003 version that used an separate box for the tuner and electronics. So all they really have a monitor screen without the electronics that hook it up. I thought about putting it on the back deck with a video camera on it to see if someone comes by to pick it up.
Note that there were much more valuable items just sitting on the table they walked right by to get this TV that now will not work for them (we had recently been shopping for Christmas presents). Yet, they wanted a TV. Figures. What is it about a TV that drives people to insanity?
We called the police and they “rushed” right over. After telling them what happened, we came up with a likely suspect. With the style of the crime and since it was done one week before Christmas, we have a pretty good idea. See enclosed sketch of the most likely suspect.
Additional information about the suspect includes that he drives a sleigh pulled by a small dog and has a heart 2 sizes too small. If you have any information that leads to the capture of this criminal, fill out the comment form below.
In addition to the TV, they stole my wife’s jewelry box. Fortunately, she was wearing her favorite jewelry at the time, so our homeowners insurance covers the cost of what they stole. She is still quite upset about a few pieces they stole because of the sentimental value, including her class ring, a necklace from her mother, and several other gifts she received.
They hit our dog with a broom they took from the porch (it was laying in the living room when we got home). He is OK although he is acting quite nervous. Makes sense. He is a protective dog although he is getting old so I hope someone at least got a nasty bite out of the experience.
My wife feels violated by the burglary. Besides getting an alarm and another guard dog (I love dogs), what should I do to help comfort her?
