Do you ever watch Hoarders? I find it fascinating. Of course, if you took a look at my garage right now, you might nominate me to be featured on the show.
The Highland Park police blotter this week includes a report of a theft in the 6100 block of St. Johns Drive that brought Hoarders to mind. The “victim” in this case is the daughter-in-law of the homeowner, who died in June. On July 28, the woman went to the house for the first time since June 18, the day of her mother-in-law’s funeral, and discovered someone had broken in and stolen — at the very least — three shoe boxes filled with jewelry.
Here’s the sentence in the report that got my attention:
“The house is a hoarder house with piles of items all over every room and space, so victim is unsure whether anything else is missing.”
