Last week I was jarred awake by my car alarm in the middle of the night and looked out the window to see someone hanging out of my car's passenger window!,
I ran down and outside the house in my PJs and bare feet (pretty stupid) and yelled and they jumped into the car and drove off.... as I looked they had smashed through the passenger window and took everything they could reach, some boxes on the front seat and from the back seat MY STREET TABLE AND ENTIRE BAG OF MAGIC!!! So after the police came and dusted for finger prints and took the report etc. I was devastated by the loss. There were some really special props I've had since I started busking 30 years ago and some newer stuff. Also found out from Police that they hit another 2 cars on my block and 2 on a nearby block and just took anything they could grab from each.
Made all the insurance claims and I'm getting some $$ back to cover replacements but it still sucks and hurts a lot.
So lesson learned, never leave anything valuable in the car.....😢

Have a feeling the crime rates will see a sharp increase fro a while. I have had my stuff stolen in the past too. I know the pain you are feeling all too well. I am sorry this has happened to you.

I can relate to being attached to props! A lot of memories can be held by simple things like a chop cup. I am sorry this happened to you. The sad part is most of what they stole will not have value to them.

So sorry to hear this. Keep an eye out on Craigslist, particularly since it's unique stuff you should be able to spot it (and tip off the police). It's doubtful they've got much use for a cane that transforms into flowers so they'll likely try to move it and convert it to cash.

Also walk the roads nearby to see if they just pulled off somewhere to finish what you interrupted. I found several of my pilfered items following a similar situation a few blocks away in the bushes (where they'd dumped the stuff they didn't think had value).

Dr. Molar, sad news. 😞

Old props are as warm as old friends.

Just the 'thought'...paigns.

There's a TERRIBLE(!) old Story,
about a car getting broken into,
in Chicago.
Unfortunately,
it's kinda funny(!).
....maybe it will console.

Some years ago, cars were having their side windows smashed,
and radios being pulled out.
One guy, trying to avoid the broken window,
put a sign in his side window saying:
NO RADIO.

When he returned,....
his window WAS broken!
The sign had been turned over,
and someone wrote:
JUST CHECKING.

....that probably DIDN'T help much,...
still,..
my sympathys.
