Our car was broken Into last night!!!
 
Sitting in the driveway, in the Stockbridge Landing neighborhood of Alden Bridge!
I can't believe it, I thought we moved into a safe area.
Stollen was my son-in-law's wallet, his gun and a gym bag with his airpods and his $$$watch!
Police on the way.

If anything is visible, it is ripe for the taking. Also, if any "friends" may know of items left in the car, that could be a factor. The Woodlands is pretty safe but unfortunately, there are crimes of opportunity anywhere. I hope that you get your items back!

@cabeuser : That's a the thing, nothing was visible. The wallet and gun were in the center console, the gym bag in the back under a hoodie. He drives a Alfa Romeo suv. He's so sure he locked it last night, but there were no broken windows etc. As for friends, we just moved here.
 
The sheriff said he has had other calls this morning, for the same type of "incidents in the area", and has another call after us. His assumption is "bored teenagers, from the area, wearing socks on their hands, simply trying every car door in every drive , just for kicks." 🀨
 
PSA: keep all doors locked 24/7
 
Edit: yes, I do believe the woodlands is a very safe area and yes, anything can happen anywhere, anytime. We are lucky to live here. 🌻

@LynnMarie : So sorry this happened to you. Yes, bored teens have been the perps in the past for sure. We lived in Alden Bridge for 16 years and really had no issue except for an egging.... neighbor had a really bad TPing. We did have quite a few solicitors but learned to never open the door!
I hope that they find your things and the crooks!

@cabeuser : Thank you πŸ™πŸ»
Honestly doubt anything will come back, it is what it is. Not going to dwell on it.
 
Everyone should be vigilant and keep their cars locked at all times. πŸ™‚

@cabeuser
You will not believe what happened!!
They caught them! πŸ€—
 
It seems, that they broke into many vehicles overnight and in one of the cars, the criminal dropped his/her cell phone 😳. Yep! The police had the cell phone, and get this, the criminals came back to that car looking for their lost phone. The homeowner saw them looking into the car and called the sheriff and they got arrested! And the sheriff was right. Teens from the area.
So far the police have only found a few credit cards belonging to my son-in-law. 🀞🏻For the rest. πŸ™πŸ»
 
Edit: the sheriff came by and returned his whole wallet! πŸ™πŸ»Also, not teens, but two adults doing this.

@LynnMarie : Yeah teens with a lot of time on their hands! Don't you just love karma! That just is laughable that the kid drop their phone in one of the cars. Big thanks to Montgomery county sheriffs office. I think they do a great job.

@cabeuser : For sure!!
I'm so impressed with the attention that was given the case by the sheriffs office. How fast they were about to find them, given, they did have a really big clue in the cell phone. Karma indeed!
It seems it was not teens, instead two adults who broke into multiple vehicles over night and also one house. Scary stuff.

@LynnMarie : Just awful!! So sorry it was so shortly after moving here. I had a bad experience when my bikes were stolen. Our bad for leaving our garage open ....but our area had not had any problems and it was late in the afternoon, not 3 am. The police (esp. one) treated US like the criminals. Awful experience all around.

It's about time to have a sit down talk to your son in law about leaving a gun in his vehicle no matter what time of the day or night.

You can always install a gun safe in the car...
Security cameras with yard signs, even fake ones, will definitely help.

We will definitely be adding a camera system.
Thank you everyone for the support! I really am so blessed to have landed in such a great community. 🌻
 
As for the gun, he normally doesn't keep it in the suv, had just returned form a business trip/drive to Austin. He is a veteran, has a conceal carry permit and knows how to handle and store a weapon.
 
It was two men, unknown if from the area or not. They had robbed multiple vehicles and also stole from an open garage. Both were arrested.

Update: one of the "men" arrested is an 18 year old kid who lives with his parents in a very nice house in the next neighborhood. Bored teens indeed 🀨

We had a RING doorbell and it worked so well we bought 6 more Ring cameras. Two are flood light types for front and backyard. One is outdoor solar powered type. Three are indoor plug in type. We use them way more than we thought. We can keep track of our pets when we are away and know when the pet sitter comes. And yesterday a big package arrived and it was dropped by our garage door and not our porch. I was a little miffed so I checked the cameras. Well it was a little lady trying to carry the big heavy package up our driveway. No wonder she only got it so far. Props to her.
