I'm sure you would have been fine. You aren't the first person to sell a car on Craigslist.
They don't want to deal with selling textbooks. My co-workers care was broken into, they took the $50 GPS and left the hundreds of dollar car seat. There are things they know how to move quickly and they leave everything else.
If he wanted your two cents he could've just asked.
Exactly! I was furious!
Wow. This is NOT roomy!
You would have had to fill out one form. Much better to walk in one day with 30K cash than four consecutive days with 7500K cash.
That sucks. I've only had cars broken into, with the house it has to be the feeling of violation and knowing that some stranger was in there that is worse than anything that was stolen.
[creamsicle] House was just burgered [/creamsicle]
At UMD someone smashed my windows and broke into my car but didnt take anything. When the cops came and took a report, they mentioned there had been a number of these break ins over the past couple weeks. So of course when I mentioned that we caught them on our landlords security camera, they said they didnt need/want to see it. Just lazy cops.
Same thing happened to me my first year, living near where Rhode Island meets 193 meets Route 1. Really annoying.

They probably know what resources/time they have at their disposal for a small crime like that and know they aren't catching anyone.
Yeah my car window was smashed and GPS stolen in CP as well back in December...luckily it wasn't worth more than $50 but replacing the window was a pain
Is it really burgled?
Not a jack ass. I am a 4 star poster on RCMB - spartanfan48413
Not according to the common law definition.
We had a rash of break-ins in our neighborhood a couple years ago and a cop told me they only took electronics b/c there was an established exchange rate/system with the drug dealers in Baltimore for this stuff so they had a ready fence. These guys even left behind silver and stuff b/c it could be more difficult and dangerous to unload.
Was also burglarized when I lived in Severna Park. Pretty terrible feeling walking in and seeing your house in disarray. Sorry that you and your family had to go through that.
our house was burgled once when i lived in Silver Spring circa 1985...guy entered the house in the middle of the night while we were home but my dad was out of town. jumped out the window, then my mom dropped my little sister out the window and i caught her. sprinted over to a neighbors but the guy was never caught
10 years later i walk home from school in Olney and the our vaccuum is on the front lawn. hid out in the woods to see if they were still there. no dice. they stole all my dad's hemmed blue jeans, and my silly collection of The Game snapback hats, but left the baseball cards VCRs, and TVs?
Sorry to hear that man.
My awesome schedule allows me to be home during the day a lot. so i dare some stupid ass high schoolers to break into my house. they will get a very rude welcome.
We've had cars broken into, tires slashed, etc. but no one has entered our house yet.

im hearing pg plaza is the spot!
The deposit could be made, but the bank is required to send a notice to the feds about the plus $10,000 cash deposit (ie this is the list now being opened to the CIA) and would be investigated. You would be on a list which could include terrorists and drug dealers and money laundrers.
BTW, if you took the bill of sale with you to the bank, I believe that comment would be attached to the paperwork, and it is not like you would be depositing this amount of cash very often, if ever again. I would not worry about the it. besides if the crooks read about this in a police blotter account or here, they will be back to get what they missed, or worse real hardened criminals might show up.
How much cash can you deposit in the bank without the bank telling the govt?

Why didn't you just keep a jar on your dresser that says "all my cash" with like $58 in it at all times?
That sucks. Sorry TF. My parents'' house was burglarized back in the 70s and I'll never forget the creepy feeling. These creeps had partied all night there (we were on vacation). Cigarette burns in the carpet, urine in random places, really malicious stuff. We always suspected it was "friends" of my brothers but no one was ever caught. The only thing that bothered my father til the day he died was losing his grandfathers pocket watch. That hit him hard.
My house in Olney got broken into back in 2005 I think. I got home about 15 minutes or so after also...which we could tell because of course I had my AIM logged in and my friend saw when it went off, but it sucked big time. Never got a thing back. Police trashed the house more dusting and going through it
Then a few months later someone tried to break into my house again in middle of night by climbing to upper deck where a bedroom is but someone was home and figured out what was going on. No clue if connected but sucked...and when I think about it 3 other homes on my street of 14 broken into in last 10 years or so
"Burgled" is such a weird word.
My brother's truck was often broken into when he was going to law school in Bmore. After losing a window, he left the truck unlocked. After losing two more windows, he started to leave them rolled down.
Screw the alarm, get a big dog.
