Yes, we lost some stuff, but it was only stuff. The three of us are fine!!!
Although Placencia is not the perfect paradise that we thought it was, you must take the good with the bad. We have taken the bad and now are looking for the good.
We have had two break-ins within a six week time period. The first time Bob and Buddy ran down one of the thieves and our stolen stuff was retrieved. The thief was put in jail and then released (yet again, as he was already out on bail for the same crime) and nothing more is said to us. The second time we came home to find them running (they had spotters), but all they got was two computers and a really nice camera. All just stuff. It is unfortunate that we have joined at least fifteen of our neighbours that have been victimized by petty thievery.
A comment was made on Placencia Crime Watch that we should have left the dog at home. Anyone that knows Buddy would agree, he is no guard dog, he is a family member who quite possibly could have been hurt had he challenged the thieves. Anyone that comes prepared to pry open a window frame and put a child through the burglar bars would be more than prepared for a dog on a porch. We would rather have our dog safe and sound, thank you very much for your concern.
It is time for us to regroup and get ready for our come back. We are not gone, just resting.
Sorry no pictures at this time as the camera is gone.
