My wife and I returned from a short holiday the other night (2 Nov) to discover a note on our car windscreen that read: “Under your house was entered and your collection was taken. Phone police A.S.A.P”. Sure enough, someone had broken into our storage room/wine cellar and stolen our wine collection of about 80-90 bottles.
It’s not that the collection had any great monetary value, but many of the bottles had been collected over the years, as gifts for our wedding or for 21st birthdays, so there was a fair amount of sentimental value.
It is clear that someone knew the wine was there, and came prepared to steal it.
From the note, it is also clear that some kind soul with a conscience either witnessed the theft or heard about it and wanted to do the right thing.
