Our home was robbed the middle of April. We know who did it because of what was taken, what wasn't taken, the time of day, there's just so many reasons to know who did this to us. It was my nephew and his girlfriend.
Here it is two months later and it still feels like it just happened. When the police came to our home they didn't even take finger prints. This was a major robbery. We begged them to do this but they wouldn't.
What's really killing me is that they stole my original wedding rings. My wedding band means more to me than anything else I own because my husband put it on my finger when he was saying his vows to me. To know my nephew, who we've always treated like one of our own kids, is so hard. His mom, my sister, has taken his side. We've always been so close and now we're not sisters any more.
These 2 live right down the road from us so when we have to go anywhere we have to drive past their house. There's no getting around it. They've went out and bought 2 used vehicles and we know they were bought with our money. I have to see those 2 vehicles every time I drive past that house.
The police have been so useless. All they've done is went to their house and ask them a few questions. A detective was not brought on to our case until 2 weeks ago, 6 weeks after the robbery.
The only hope we have of them being caught is the fact that they both have warrants for other crimes. We had to do the research ourselves to find this out. The police didn't even run their names the times they went to their house. I spoke with the detective yesterday and he told me he plans to bring them in together on these warants so they can't bail each other out. He said he can question them about our case but if they mention getting a lawyer he has to stop, and I mean stop everything. He can longer talk to them at the jail or ever go by their house again to talk to them.
I don't know what's happened to our judicial system. Criminals have so many more rights than we do. Our neighbor saw the Jeep my nephew drives in our driveway at the time of the robbery. It wasn't enough to anything with. No warrant to bring them in and no search warrant.
This has been beyond frustrating. My depression is horrible. My anxiety is horrible. I've afraid to leave my home because I'm so worried this could happen again. Yes, my husband did install 2 security systems, after the robbery. We live in a small subdivision in the country so our neighbors watch out for each other. Even though our closest neighbor was looking out for us and saw that Jeep in our driveway it didn't help.
I don't know how to even begin starting the healing process. What I want to do is take matters in to my own hands. Good people are the ones who end up getting in trouble though.
They stole so many pieces of my jewelry. Not only my wedding rings but other pieces my husband gave me out of love. When I said this was a major robbery, it was. They stole almost $25,000 in cash, jewelry and prescription medication.
I needed to vent and I need some advice as far as getting to point of healing. I so wish the 2 of them could both be brought in today for the warrants they have. All we can is wait though. We won't even be informed when they're brought in. This is literally driving me crazy. I wold appreciate any advice.
