Both break ins occurred on 11/20/2018
We had a break in and burglary on the 3000 block of M St, Richmond, VA 23223. Someone unscrewed our back porch light and broke in the kitchen window. Rummaged through the entire house, just emailing to let you guys know. This was between 6:30 pm and 9:30 pm when we left for the gym at 6:30 pm on 11/20/18. We didn’t have cameras, unfortunately the police told us that since we don’t have cameras that there was nothing they could do. They didn’t send anyone to try to get fingerprints off anything either unfortunately. We’ll probably be looking into cameras for the future. Someone had to have been watching us because we leave for the gym at the same time every night. I’d caution that some people were watching us and got our routine down, they used a vehicle and I’m guessing that they started a little after we left for the gym. We even left the lights on in the living room, front, and back porch like we usually do. So it seems like someone has been watching us. Luckily not much of value was taken but a lot of sentimental stuff was that will probably end up in the trash.
A couple of things I noticed that I didn’t realize last night, I don’t think his shirt is up, I believe he’s wearing a weight belt. Also, the more I look at the last video of the guy in the red hoodie, the more I think that person must have been involved. More than likely, they planned to open the front door. You can see the second person appears to be texting, most likely communicating with the guy in the back.
