Mom got a call from the police. They had some items they wanted mom to identify. Could mom come down. Well, duh! So mom had to skip karate class and she and the boy went to see the police.
There was the boy's cello. And Mom's engagement ring, and the ring the boy gave her for Christmas a few years ago. There were the 5 sterling silver bracelets, 2 brass bracelets, earrings, a gold necklace, and almost all of the DVD's that were missing. One or three or six of the DVD's are missing. There was stuff that mom didn't even know was missing and there it was!
The police very kindly let the boy take the cello, but the rest of the items are evidence and may not be returned for six months. It's okay though, it's in a very safe place.
It all started because the thieves stole a little blue box from the boy that the boy put coins in, couldn't get it open and tossed it out of the car. Someone saw that and called in the "suspicious car" in the neighborhood with the license plate to the police. The blue box tied the car to our robbery and that is how they got caught. One is in custody, they are getting another one tonight and the third, tomorrow.
Mom's items were in FOUR different houses last night. That is how fast the items move.
Mom would like to thank everyone who gave her prayers and support. It was very much appreciated. Mom is really tired and totally emotioned out so she is going to bed, but after starting as a really rocky morning it has turned into a great night. Thanks all!
