Default Robbery at my off-campus house

What's up guys, so me and my 5 university roommates (4 of them are my ride or die boys and 1 is my cousin) who live off campus have been robbed a couple times now. We have reason to believe that they have the keys to our house. The first incident, on a Friday when everyone was gone back home to their family, started with someone "breaking" into our washroom window and then stealing 2 laptops from the basement (one of them is the landlord and the other is her friend), they also smashed the windshield of the landlord's car which will cost $2 100 to repair. They made it seem like they broke into our house but we're pretty sure they didn't. Second incident happened when only 1 guy was in the house but I guess they thought no one was home and they walked into our house. The landlord (who assumed it was us and our friends) told us that she heard someone open the door with a key and she heard a conversation about how someone broke into our back window and they laughed about it...that wasn't us. Since only 1 guy was home he was upstairs and he didn't come down since it is kind of risky, they could have been armed with a weapon. That same night some one left 6 or 7 DEEP scratches on my roommate's $75 000 bmw...which will cost $2 300 to get fixed. The last incident, which was yesterday night, happened when all of us left the house at around 2 a.m. to go to our friends' house. We were gone for barely an hour when we came back our $1 000 big screen TV was gone. What is really fucked up is that no one broke into our house this time. We are 100% sure we left the door locked because I told my boy to lock it and he did. When we came back the door was left open. We called the cops who came down 4 hours later but he didn't even seem to give a shit. What should we do? We have to get our locks changed but we were thinking about maybe setting a trap or even getting cameras around the house. What do you guys think?

Wtf took you dudes getting robbed and vandalised multiple times before thinking of doing somethin. Get some cameras I guess but f they're smart they'll be masked up anyways.

btw doesn't matter to me but last time I said the N word i got an infraction I think so you might wanna rethink that lol

WOW that really sucks for you. You should really change your lock. If you really feel you need to put up camera's do it but if you are 10% sure that they have keys to your house, then changing the locks should be good enough IMO

This is a case of vandalism and jealousy I'd say. Who really wins by keying a car? NO one but the bodyshops. I guess you guys must of gained some enemies along the way. Problably installing an alarm would be a good idea. Talk to your landlord.

Does your landlord allow pets? Get a massive dog... a tibetan mastiff would be nice...



Feed it raw meat so it'll get a taste for flesh....

hehe, good call on the dog.

My suggestion is get a new deadbolt and bars on the window and be VERY careful who you give a copy of the key to. Sounds like they got a copy of yours somehow. Or move the fuck out as you've been targeted.

I hope this is not Hamilton. lol McMaster University is on the West Side of downtown Hamilton and there's a lot of house robbery took place in that area.

Perhaps an inside job?..I wouldn't exclude that possibility. Personally, I'd employ stake-out tactics.

if they have a key, it's probably a former tenant that made a copy of it before giving it back to the landlord. is that possible?

As far as the "break-ins" go, change the locks and get some bars. As far as car security goes, I'm going to bring out the inner Nigerian in me and show you how car security works in Africa (South Africans are trying to lay claim to this, but Nigerians pioneered it).

Do you have anything left to steal?

Man, student housing is PRIME for theft, that's how it goes down. You don't need a key to get into most locks, do you know how easy it is to pick a lock? It's a joke! If you practiced for an afternoon with a set you could pick a lock in a few minutes!

I STILL have a key to my old university houses, to both of them, and I would assume the locks haven't been changed. Landlords don't want to do it because it's just another expense but I would almost think they would have to at this point or you could withhold rent (not sure, but someone here has to be a lawyer?)

Dead-bolts only help when you are home, so just get a fucking bat and that settles that. Although you could get the dead bolt if you don't feel like dishing out some mob justice

Sucks about the cars, but doesn't really tell you much. Gives it more of a personal feel but that could just be something the robbers do because they are pricks. So doesn't mean much...

Like everyone said alarm system is your only bet man. Sorry to hear the cops don't care much, I know it sucks on your end, but cops never give a fuck about stuff like that. You know how often it happens in student areas?

When I was in kingston someone walked into my place and walked RIGHT behind me up to my buddies room! I didn't even see the guy, I heard someone come in but I just assumed it was one of my housemates. It's so easy to casually walk into a student house and if you get busted say "oh shit wrong address...doesn't bob live here?".

That's sucks man. You and your buddies should try for a off-campus housing in the Mountain, or in Ancaster area next year -- it's kinda more expensive and more far from Mac but I assume you guys have a ride, right?!

I'm from Hamilton, yeah, house robbery in downtown is very crazy!

That is exactly what we think it is. One of the guys that lives with me now actually moved in after school started because we wanted some guy out of our house and wanted our boy in. The day they switched houses my keys went missing. My keys had my house key and my room key.
