This is why I have a gun. By the time the police get there... who knows.

We had this same thing happen 2 weeks ago to our home. It's too bad we weren't home - as the saying goes "This house is protected by the good Lord and a gun. If you come in unwelcome, you may meet them both." Unfortunately, it resulted in the theft of our electronics & it's been a royal pain in the butt to get them replaced with the insurance company.
