My house has now been broken into 2 times

The first time someone stole a
-42' flat screen tv, name brand Olivia
-playstation 3
-all the remotes && controllers
-several playstation games

This time they just stole a 50' flat screen tv name brand Zeneth

Does anyone have any information on who is breaking and entering around the Princeton area? Where my stuff is? I am having ADT come && install today...

2 times in 5 months, is just ridculous people....

Anyone else going through anything similar? And what have the cops done to help you?

Make sure that you write down the serial number on your next tv so when it is stolen you can call local pawn shops and possibly nail these people...ADT systems are really nice and they even have a feature that will detect the sound of glass breaking and it will automatically go off. What area do you live at in Princeton? I havent seen anything on the news about that. I bet it is someone that knows you or use to live in your neighborhood that is usually how why they are bold enough to do it.

Psht people break in all the time the cops do NOTHING to help. Someone broke into my apartment Last August or so and stole a Playstation 3, a 42" Visio, DVD player, movies... they never found any of it. And Thanksgiving 08 someone broke into our townhouse and stole a laptop, 500 in cash, and some shoes.. never did anything ab that one either & there were fingerprints on the window they broke into. The cops around here are pathetic. I have an alarm system through ADT on my current house, they also secure the office I work at, my moms house, and a coworkers house... they are really good!

My home was also broken into around 5 or 6 months ago, Police took finger prints but was so slow to do anything, My landlord and I had to hound them for over a week to come and even look after the initial report and finally got them to come get some finger prints. Steal have heard nothing. The laptop and gun they stole was both registered. I have heard the names of Timothy Browning, Scotty Inscore, Dustin Reynolds, Chad Doyle and some Kevin guy killa_k75 on myspace. I have heard they have broken in multiple homes in the area. I have purchased a HoneyWell system for home security, it is a shame it is something I felt was a must to be done.

Yup, that is deff weird.

I have gotten the name of Scooter Bassbey.(he actually has several diff last names) But he goes by Cosby, a real bonafied local crackhead.

I am buying new doors, putting up cameras outside that are wireless && broadcast the signal to a website so I can watch from work && getting a security system installed with ADT. So I hope that they don't try to F*ck with me anymore... I have even thought about just sitting in my house with the door wide open in the dark holding my 38 && the first person to walk in just gets it.

It has to be the same people that broke in last time, you know that they even took time to look for my d@mn remote! Then just walked out the front door in daylight!.... So everyone that reads this... make sure that you secure everything! Go outside your home && think like a criminal will be the only way to get all the corners covered.

Yup...
Somebody is watching your pattern of leaving and coming home. It is probably someone you have met and know. A good security system would be great. But...If your not armed, you may consider that as well as you may accidentally walk in on them.
Imagine how this forum would read if they had strict gun control. I would rather be tried by 12 than carried by 6 anyday.

That's pretty pathetic someone stealing shoes. They must be some crack heads to go that low. I've heard of some of those names and they are trash!!!!!! But alot of times these thieves are slick to sell it to drug dealers or pawn stuff out of state. I went through a rough divirce where my ex pawned alot of stuff and sold it to druggies. Maybe that's y the cops have done nothing is because they know the trash in this town.

I take it the cops should wave their magic wand or glare into their crystal ball so they can automatically know who stole your stuff and where they sold it. You know all they have to do is locate where the person entered your house, take a picture of a glove print and put it into a computer which will immediately spit out the identity of the culprit. Since you know more than they do why not run right out and get your things. I would advise you to and your neighbors to be more observant. All property doesn't go to a pawn shop. Usually it's folks like you who buy a $500 dollar chainsaw for $50 bucks and I'm sure you didn't write down a serial number so that it could be entered into the computer systems. I do know that when they search drug dealers homes they run srial numbers of the items found through the computer. If yours isn't listed then how could they prove it actually belonged to you especially after it had changed hands a couple of times. This place is overrun with stupidity but it's all the cops fault.

I believe you are referring to Cosby Phillips, his nickname is Scooter.

I don't believe that cops can do anything "magical".

I do honestly feel though, if they would have worked a little harder on the first time that my house was robbed, that it wouldn't have happened a second time. The first time that I was robbed, the cop that showed up even stated that I was the 5th robbery that DAY. I tried to keep in contact with the police station to see if they were going to finger print. No one offered, I had to request it, && still never got it done because no one would show up to get it done.

It is a problem in this area, especially with all the drugs going around. I lived in an area where they did a drug sweep about every 8 months. I haven't heard of ONE the whole time that I have lived here. It just seems that people continue to do what they want to do, && no one does anything about it.

The first time that this happened I posted up 500.00$ reward signs everywhere for the where-abouts of my things && leading to an arrest. I got several clues, told the cops && STILL nothing was done about it. I had names, locations of where the person who committed the robbery stayed, who they traded it to, what they traded it for, etc. I mean, I really did everything but take matters into my own hands && I still feel as though it was just pushed to the back of a filing cabinet somewhere.

So I am not saying that the cops should have a crystal ball looking for all the anwsers. But they could have at least tried a little harder, patrolled a little more, etc. && the sad thing is... even with this second robbery in under 6 months.... I still haven't seen a cop patrol any more then usual.....

Maybe they could just sit at your house 24 7 and guard it constantly. You keep saying cop(s)sounds like only one was working your case blame the one not all. How can they patrol and stop everyone walking down the street when there are a 100 people just like you screaming for something to be done. They are trying to help you as much as they possibly can but they can't be everywhere at once and do you think they can take a smudged fingerprint located within your house and be able to tell immediately who broke in? I guess they are to put it in the computer and it is all taken care of. That would be all the evidence you need to put them in jail. LMFAO! They would have to first prove whether the print belonged to you your family of just some friend you had over a while back. The officer will be able to know if he can get a print or not. If there is nothing there then why waste the time? It would have to be something extremely smooth before you could even get a print. Why not donate enough money to the city so they can hire some more officers. Maybe if you have enough money they could hire enough to put one on every street corner or at least on every corner of your house. LOL. Even if they caught the person they would'nt do a single day of jail time because our current court system would simply place in an alternate sentencing program.(We can't afford the jail bill)!!

Obviously your one of these theives since your getting all offensive and such. ACTUALLY I had serial number for EVERYTHING stolen. Did it help? No. And if there are finger prints they should take them and run them not just say oh well maybe next time. There has to be a murder in order for cops to do anything around here unless it happens to them.

If you know where its at why don't you go get it? The police have the same finger print computer you have so why not put it in at your place? What good is the serial number going to be untill the police find your property some where and run the number on the stuff. Do you think that it is a tracking number like the mail or UPS uses? Something they can use to see where your property is at all times. You don't know half of what you think you do. You got on here bad mouthing and blaming police for your stuff not being recovered. Dumb people make good victims for theives. Get educated.
