So do you remember me writing abut how we were ripped off in January? Some asshat dude or dudes had some sort of passkey that allowed them to easily open the doors of any GM vehicles and plunder our goodies.
Remember that story? No? Well, these asshats took our DVD player with my mom's new Mama Mia! DVD inside and our Garmin Nuvi navigator.
We talked to the cops and 16 other GM vehicles broken into that same night from the same general location. And we talked to the insurance agent (we ultimately decided against submitting a claim — we've since replaced the navigator [and then promptly broke the new one ... doh] and my mom lent us her portable DVD player). And nothing ever came of it ... until today.
We received a letter from the Lakewood Police Department saying they had caught the jokers who had been traveling around the state gleaning all the goodies out of people's GM cars.
They caught the guys and they had a shitpotful of stolen goods with them.
So, here's the conundrum: The only way to claim our stolen property is make an appointment for either Friday July 10 or Monday July 13, then drive four hours over the Continental Divide and look through all the crap these jerkwads stole in hopes that our sad little DVD player and navigator are there.
We've got my mom's DVD player (which is way better than that jacked up old one we had). But I'd really like to have my navigator back.
Is it worth the time and money? What would you do?
