Just about everyone who lives in Palm Bay either knows someone or themselves have been a victim of a home burglary or had their vehicle broken in to. In either case your property has been damaged and the stuff you worked hard to pay for has been stolen. It really sucks! You come home from work to find your front door kicked in or a window broken and your things have been gone through and your stuff is gone. That TV or game system gone. Your CDs and DVDs gone. That coin collection you have had since you were 7 gone. All gone taken by some scumbag. Yes you feel violated and you are pissed off.
You call the Police and it might take them 3-4 hours for them to finally get out to your house. When they get there they basically tell you tough shit. Most likely they will not dust for prints and the chances of them catching the scum or recovering your property is next to zero.. They will tell you: yup happens all the time out here, just part of living in Palm Bay. In fact this is the 3rd house I have been to this afternoon.
You should have had an alarm system. You should have had a safe or kept your valuables in a safety deposit box. You should not keep those valuables in YOUR house, especially guns. Why do you need firearms anyway? This happened to us about 20 years ago and the police officer said and I quote "thanks to you sir we now have firearms in the hands of juveniles". Yes thanks to me. I know the police cant be everywhere and I do not expect them to be. But that comment pisses me off even today 20 years later.Yeah thanks to me.
The punks who broke into my house were caught a couple of days later breaking into my neighbors house. I still remember the assholes names Arron Ray Spivey and Eric Albert Spivey Juveniles of course. Twin brothers with an extensive arrest record. Judge Fran Jamieson just kept releasing them. You can see what nice men they grew up to be by going to the Brevard County Clerk of Courts website.
http://220.127.116.11/. None of my property was ever recovered and I hate these bastards to this day because they stole from me items which never can be replaced.
Best thing I ever did was get a dog. I have had a couple over the years and they do the job well. They bark like hell and will scare away the average Palm Bay punk..
So you have been robbed and if you have insurance you have to deal with the insurance company, that's about as much fun as it sounds. They want proof that you ever owned the items, and they want serial numbers and receipts for everything maybe even pictures. Then you have to hope that your policy is not cancelled because of the claim. Insurance companies do not like FL and they don't like Palm Bay.
Vehicles are always getting broken into in Palm Bay. It happens right there in your driveway when you are in side maybe asleep. Again your told its your own damn fault because you probably left the car door unlocked. Its always your fault when some one jacks your stuff. The thieves are usually kids out in the neighborhood usually if your door is locked they move on to the next one. My neighbors and I agree if we ever catch the punks breaking into our cars its not the police who we call first. We are going to call each other. Remember this is all your own damn fault your things get stolen . How dare you leave a couple of fishing poles on your boat or the GPS in the boat. How dare your kids leave their bicycles outside in front of the house or a skate board or scooter. You are just saying hey come steal my stuff!!! Its a shame but its so true in Palm Bay.
These two were just busted breaking into a house in the NE section of Palm Bay
Now is the time of year when you have your Christmas tree up and the presents are starting to pile up underneath. Beware there are lots of creeps who want your presents under their tree. It happens so don't let it happen to you. Be careful and be safe after all this is Palm Bay.
