I was robbed!

Post  Dave-O on Tue Jan 24, 2012 3:23 pm

Unfortunately, as you may have seen on facebook, I mean that literally. But I'm not here to complain any more. Let's keep this running related...

The burglar didn't touch my running shoes. Phew.

However, as the police were investigating, one asked, "Check to see if any of your bags or backpacks are missing." "Why?" I asked. "Because he needed to smuggle your stuff out of here somehow."

Sure enough, he nabbed my Soldier Field 10 Mile 5th place finisher backpack. So, if anyone in Chicago spots a 6' 2-3" African-American male wearing a black Adidas backpack with "Soldier Field 10 - Top Finisher!" embroidered on the front, attack. Thanks.

That sucks, man.



My sympathies. Been there face to face, lucky I'm alive right now.

Britt missed him by less than a half-hour, so I'm just thankful he was gone before she got home. Everything that was taken is easily replaceable.

I only took one of the iPads and left the TV. I have compassion, man.

PS, thanks for the loose change.

I was wondering about the shoes. Whew!

But it stinks about the swag, and the burglary in general. But hey, who knows? Maybe the bag was jinxed. If you have a great 2012 after this (and you hear about some burglar getting run over by an L train) you'll know why.

Hey, I noticed you eat the quick oats from Aldi too! Seriously though, we had our house broken into in August and 2 fairly new computers were taken and yes they grabbed a backpack to haul them out with. At least you're all OK and it's stuff that can be replaced. When we got hit it was early morning and I was out on a long run with my wife sleeping upstairs. The dog barked, but she thought she was barking at me. I'll keep my eyes peeled and carry a big stick.

Damn - I just saw this after sending you an email - that is just awful. That guy probably has no clue what that bag meant to anyone else. Why do people like that exist?

Indeed. I had to skip a run too!

Ha, I'll keep my eyes peeled on news of train accidents.

My criminal law knowledge is rusty, but yes, we have a Castle Doctrine - to what extent I'm not sure. I believe the presumption is that deadly force is justified in your abode.

Eye for an eye? Jerry is old school!

Scary Steve! Glad no one was hurt.

The bag is no big deal, just thought its an extra slap in the face to steal one's stuff with their own bag.

@mountandog wrote:Crap. I recommend stealing it back Evil or Very Mad

Oh if I see that bag...

@Nick Morris wrote:Were you able to track the iPad??

We didn't have 3G service for it, so I don't think its trackable. I tried to Facetime it - its been turned off.

That's terrible, Dave. I know how it feels.

So you got a description of the guy? Security camera?

Really sorry to hear that. We were burglarized back in 2007 and in my case the items were not replaceable due to the sentiment attached to the jewelry. I'm betting on an inside job in my case.

Nonetheless.....I feel your pain!
