Just get a big dog. And a gun.
This poor guy got his computer stolen, right out of his home. Too bad there's no physical evidence of a struggle or broken locks and if they did a sweep for finger prints, well, there's a backlog of thousands of untested finger print kits, so it would be pointless. It's turning into a real He Said/He Said case.
Look, if you've been drinking and you leave your sexy computer out, right where everyone can see it, robbers will be robbers. Lock it up tight, ladies. I mean...sir.
