ZWExton Nope, not broad daylight. I'm sure it happened some time during the night.
The police had no interest: "Break-in and theft. Ho hum. You and everyone else. Don't call us we'll call you." I actually don't expect much more from them since they have more important things on their plate, but they could have at least taken a description of the stolen items. Even when I told them the set was pretty distinctive, there was no interest.
Funny thing is that the person who did take an interest was my neighbor's son, who is not a nice dude, if you know what I mean. I don't live in a particularly good area and my neighbors are right in the middle of it all. The thing is, I get along pretty well with them and they are actually really good neighbors: they bring me fresh salmon/halibut on occasion; they keep their yard clean; they offer to help out if I'm working outside; he comes by about every two days to make sure his dogs haven't shit in our yard and picks up any crap if they have; and they're quiet (the one time he came over at about 8PM and asked me if he and his friends were bothering us. They weren't even loud. He said, "If we're buggin' you, I'll send these bozos home").
Anyways, he saw me out by the car and said hello. When I told him what happened he said, "Not in my neighborhood! I'll shake the tree tonight and see what drops out." Some time ago when I had a guy coming around knocking on my door asking for handouts, my neighbor's son came around and said, "Hey, I know that guy from jail and he's a real slime ball." I told him that he wasn't really causing that much trouble, but he was just kind of "persistent." He said, "You don't want to have anything to do with him and I'll make sure he understands that he isn't welcome around here." I never saw him again. I halfway expect to find my clubs back in my car some day or to have my neighbor knock on my door, hand me my clubs, and say, "Don't ask."
