A little bit of good news...

They caught the guy who robbed our house! A police officer stopped by our home to let us know that they had the guy in custody. He actually showed remorse and broke down as he was showing the officer all the homes that he had robbed and also telling him how he had broken into them. He confessed to robbing our home and about 12 in all in our neighborhood. While I am sure that they will not recover any more of our stolen property, I am relieved and happy to know that he is not out there doing more harm to anyone else. I really hope for this kids sake that he takes this as an opportunity to change his life. I can definitely find some closure in this and it feels good!

That is really good news. How did they catch him? Was he in the middle of robbing another house?

Thanks everyone! Annie, I am not sure how they caught the guy. The police officer didn't go into too much detail. Apparently he did stop the guy just after he robbed our house though but apparently he had dumped our stuff in the bushes. He said if he had been just a minute earlier, he would have seen the guy coming out of our home. Oh well, they caught him, he just turned 18 and he is looking at 12 counts of burglary. Not a good situation for this kid.
