“As he walks out he either forgets or just doesn’t care at this point and his face is fully exposed,” said Leslie Broeckert, the theft victim.

At 10 a.m. on a Tuesday, Broeckert said that the thief or thieves went upstairs rummaged through two bedrooms and then moved downstairs.

In a matter of minutes, he took a tool box full of tattoo equipment, a safe, a shotgun, and several electronics. The thief also took some family jewelry that is far more valuable to Broeckert than to anyone else.

“I had a lot of family jewelry, grandma, great-grandma, actually some of my grandpas, even just old rings that I had been handed down. Yea, that’s sentimental value that you can’t replace.”
