West Seattle Crime Watch: Fast-acting burglars

This report is from D in Highland Park, who was only gone for a short time when the burglar(s) hit:

We had a break-in this morning at our home on 18th/Trenton. The thief (or thieves) kicked in our locked back door and stole my iMac, speakers, mouse, keyboard, and a Kindle Fire right off my desk. I was gone from the house for less than 30 minutes picking up my daughter at preschool. The iMac wasn’t worth anything (2009 model) and it contained all our family pictures and videos. A good reminder to back up digital information and pictures to the cloud.

As we were processing this, D e-mailed again to add that the burglar(s) also stole video equipment, a spare set of their house keys, and even roller-derby gear.

    when you say your iMAC wasn’t worth anything because just fam pictures, you actually meant that it was priceless?

        I wouldn’t listen to reviewers who rate software poorly cause they’re technological inept and don’t know how to use software. This product has worked for years with us and we have lost nothing. They back up the entire drive or what ever you define. I have 3 TB on their service with no problem.

          I think it’s wise to consider the reviews. And there’s no way to know if you’re trying to sell something for your own self interests. Either way, I’m very sorry for the person who lost their family photos and videos, along with other information on their computer. That would be a very difficult loss.

    Jan, she obviously meant “street value” of the iMac. D, I sympathize, I had a break-in like that when my partner went out for a quick errand. I lost an address book and jewelry from my grandmother. It’s clear the thieves were watching the house and waiting for the right moment. I hope the items will be returned. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
