Returned to Florida only to find my condo burglarized. I should have had a clue when my garden ornaments were in disarray.
As I have nothing of value in the condo but nicknacks, silly things were done like rearranging dishes in the china closet, and the dishwasher emptied. Guess these are hiding spots for cash and keys are hidden under garden ornaments??…
Spoke with the man who was watching my house, and he told me on two separate occasions lights were on when he didn’t leave them on. So, this reinforces my concerns.
Prior to my departure a neighbor’s teenage son did damage to the golf course behind my condo while on a midnight joy ride with friends. While terrifying me, and damaging the golf course, doubt he is the culprit.
But, after this midnight adventure decided to enlist the support of my carpenter to watch the condo upon my departure.
So now am considering the culprit to be a former neighbor who threatened me on several occasions. He thought I called the police when neighbors stated he beat his girlfriend. Actually I heard nothing, but was targeted, and lived in fear with his actions. Couldn’t live safely in the condo for over 2 years.
Neighbors also relayed stories of drug concerns, felony convictions, and guns in their condo. Well, it is Florida and you have to accept what Floridian’s do.
Had the Sherriff visit and she took a report. The locks have been changed, windows locked, and covers placed over the windows. Now if he visits again he’ll have to break a window to get in. I’ve placed a rod at the base and a pin in the top of the sliding glass door for added protection.
On my return from Europe will have to call the sheriff to escort me into the condo.
Where do you go to be safe?
