Welcome to St Louis Teets'!

Our good friends got married on Friday and instead of Jason driving his truck home that night we left it in front of their apt. down town and he rode home with me and the boys after dinner. This is what we found when we went to pick it up the next day. Funny thing is this happened within yards of where a security officer sits and we had a generic police report waiting for us when we got there. Nothing was dusted or even taken as evidence, see that nice screw driver on the floor board ;) I know the city of St Louis is over ran with crime, I mean they're ranked #1 in the country I believe and for good reason ;) I think what bothers me the most, is Jason bought himself a navigation unit, subs you name it for his truck when he got his bonus a couple years ago. That's the one thing he did with it, which he completely deserved. And some people completely took that away. I'm hoping that our insurance (Geico) covers this. I made sure to add extra coverage onto his truck after we added all this to it. So I guess we'll find out Tuesday what the verdict is.








Pin It!

Honestly, there are so many burglaries from autos that most departments don't print or take evidence in them. Even when there is a string of them occurring. Most often no one is caught. Fingerprints only work if they have a match on file. Most car burglaries are juveniles with no history, so therefore, no prints on file. Insurance usually covers it with a report. It may not seem right, but even if they were to process the scene and take evidence, nothing would probably come from it so they don't spend the resources on it. Sad but that's just how it is. It sucks to be the victim.

The thing about taking prints though, is even if they're not in the NCIC system it will help when they catch them. I think if the city would have taken the time to at least bag the evidence, when they do catch them, they have a case. kwim? But then again that's even more paperwork for the officer. I'm actually going to look and see if we still have the boxes, I know at one time we did. They wanted us to call back with serial numbers if we do have them. Not sure what good that would do though :D

We're also still out our deductible. And for those that have installed/upgraded anything in their vehicles, call and get extra coverage. Your insurance only covers the "basics".

That is terrible! You can't have anything anymore! Why is it people think they can just take what they want!? UGH! I am so sorry! ((HUG))

I'm so sorry. It's rediculous that people just think they are entitled to take whatever they want.

hi Amy, Iam so sorry that u had such a terrible mess. I live in the outskirts of St.Louis, and I just want u to know that we do have a lot of crime here and seems like u were in the heart of it. but there are some beautiful,creative people here. a lot of famous people are from here. I have lived in so many places here in the U.S.A and over seas, but I always come "HOME".. so it hurts me to hear about what happened to u while here. so I apologize to u from the people who robbed u. but please dont link all of us who live here together. I hope it will be made up to u but I know that most robberies like this are never dealt with. God Bless u, from a ST. Louis native..
