My lag screws were dropped off at my house yesterday from UPS, but were not there when I got home. I contacted UPS and filed a report on it to the FWPD also.
I suspect my shady cousin has stolen them. I let him stay at my house for a few weeks when he had nowhere to go last month, then my wallet went missing after the beer festival I went to this month although I didn't recall losing it that night. I assumed I lost it at first, but checked everywhere and then assumed it was stolen. I kicked my cousin out a day later after finding some of my stuff in his bag, and later got his girlfriend to admit they stole my wallet. He managed to grab an extra key to the locks I switched out after he left (forward thinking criminal: take extra key to keyed locks in closet since I will switch them out once he leaves), and he came back and took my car amp I needed to install, an xbox 360, and my former roommates graduation ring (still determining if there is anything else) from inside my house. I did find him and his girlfriend in my backyard when I got home early before leaving for my trip the previous Friday which was my evidence of who to suspect when things disappear from a locked house.
I have started a police report on all this BS, but having him at my house threw off almost a month of my normal life and lots of my planning. He is already a felon and I shouldn't have been so open to letting him stay, but he didn't present any problems for a few weeks and chopped down some of my trees and my neighbors trees before things went down shady street. Now he gets to deal with the consequences of his actions. I wasn't going to do much when it was just my wallet (trespassing notice for him), but after finding more and more stuff gone, that idea went out the window.
I found this love letter to his girlfriend in the trash also. Sad, but true.
Not trying to derail this thread, just venting a little. I will be holding off on any major shipments of stuff until this boils over.
I did get some cool coats for the playa Tuesday at the thrift store for 50 cents each.
