View Full Version : So the cops just left my house...

05-07-2007, 02:30 PM
I just got home and the gate to my backyard is open, and it wasn't when I left. So I grab my Sig out of the car and walk around the house to see if there is any sign of forced entry.
When I get to the rear, I notice the curtains over the back door move. Uh oh!

I put the wife and kids back in the car and told her to call 911. I posted myself at the brick corner so I could see two sides.

I was very concerned. I, as I'm sure most guys here, have more than a couple. I keep one PS-90 by my bed and I have two pistols in my sock drawer. So, if they weren't armed when they broke in, they sure were now. I informed the police of this.

10 or so minutes later, a lone cruiser shows up. There were two cops, one went to the front and the other to the rear. Five minutes later, another cop arrives.

The two commenced to clearing. Just after they entered, my garage door begins to open!

Heart pounding, thanking God they hadn't demanded I disarm, I prepared to defend my wife and kids.

It turned out to be the police opening it, I'm not sure why. Light maybe?

Well, the house clearing took a while, and when I was cleared to go in, they asked me to make sure my weapons were all there. They were. The point man cop observed..."Yeah, all of them. Hey, what kind is that one in your SOB holster?"

About then, 5 more cruisers showed up. They BS'd in the yard for a few minutes and left. Of course, most of my neighbors were outside and concerned.

I was surprised that the only mention of my being armed was curiosity. Not one "sir, holster your weapon." or any thing of the sort.

Moral of the story: You just never know whose gonna be in your house while you're gone.

Oh, the moving curtain? I think it may have been the cat.

Well that is all, I am gonna see if I can fit a few more pistols in my safe. And, Yeehaw! I actually got to speak with the police and not hear Miranda! First time for everything.

A little too early, even for me. :D

Glad everyhting turned out okay for you. I know how it feels.

I lost a couple weapons a few months ago and it sucked! Me and a friend went shooting, came home, got lazy left'em in the trunk. He calls the next morning and asked me if I came over and went in his car and happend to leave the doors open. Uh..no. Well the Car stereo, 2 Bushmasters M4's, Beta mags, Winchester 1300, Saiga 12. Were gone. cops showed up, did'nt bother with prints. Telling us "well we probably wont find'em anyway". There still gone. The best part is in Oregon, when the police recover firearms they just smash'em, they dont get returned. If I run across my weapons (all with one of a kind custom machined parts). Ill get justice.

I'm glad to hear that it ended well. It sounds like someone might have a new set of violin strings soon...

Glad it turned out the way it did. You never can be too careful, especial with your family with you. I came home one night, my wife was working and no one was supposed to be home. I found a light on, that was off when I left and saw the patio door curtain move when I checked the outside of the house. I also called 911. Three officers arrived and entered the house. Then I heard a familier bark. It was my son's peek-a-poo dog. He had stopped while I was gone. He left the dog while he and his wife went out to eat. Thought I wouldn't mind. I felt a little foolish, but one of the Officer's made a good point. What if it wasn't the dog? What if it was someone else? I was armed as always, but someone might have gotten hurt if I had checked it out by myself. Glad again, it worked out good for you and your family.

Thats a scary situation! I'm glad it turned out to be nothing.
I was attacked by a couple druggies a long time ago but luckily I had my Glock 17. No shots were fired. All they had to see was the barrel pointed at their tiny little heads and they bid a VERY hasty retreat.

in Oregon, when the police recover firearms they just smash'em, they dont get returned.

Is this what they do when they recover a stolen car or jewelry? If not, then start screaming bloody murder about discrimination.
