(Chron)   Remember that three-story "she cave" closet house? Turns out on the same night the owner happened to forget to arm the security system and even lock the door, burglars arrived and spent 40 minutes stealing $800K - $1M worth of stuff   (chron.com ) divider line

Maybe you shouldn't have told anyone about it.
 
2014-08-02 04:03:03 PM  
One percenter problems.
 
2014-08-02 04:18:06 PM  
LOL.  that is all.

Boy you make it tough to feel bad for you.

"Just happened" to not set the alarm or lock the door...

I wonder - for how much were her things insured?  Was there a complete and exhaustive inventory of everything?
 
2014-08-02 05:07:25 PM  
Yeah right.
 
2014-08-02 05:24:32 PM  
who in the what now?
 
2014-08-02 05:29:30 PM  
So she'll organize a fund raiser for herself then.
 
2014-08-02 05:30:47 PM  
Which three stories?
 
2014-08-02 05:30:49 PM  
seems legit
 
2014-08-02 05:32:16 PM  
Boy, I wish I was so rich my insurance fraud scams would be headline news.

Too much wine can cause you to forget to set the alarm and lock the doors. Video at 11.

Add me to the pile wondering about insurance.

someone needed to commit insurance fraud due to cash flow problems?
I bet they paid *cash* for all the missing stuff

x3, and that is about as much as I can care...
 
2014-08-02 05:43:46 PM  
Can you still file an insurance claim for theft, when you neglected to set the alarm and lock the window though?
 
2014-08-02 05:45:20 PM  
My common sense is tingling...
 
2014-08-02 05:45:55 PM  
Thieves don't usually break small windows. They don't clean out whole rooms. They smash a quick way in grab what they can and get the hell out in a few minutes. They are crime of opportunity or planned for specific things.

I don't understand how idiots get so much money in the first place.

This. Although I would not be surprised if the insurance included a "must set the alarm" clause. Since they have publicly admitted leaving the alarm off I would not be surprised if the insurance company told them to get lost.
 
2014-08-02 05:46:51 PM  
Some people might be on the side of the thieves on this one. Not sure.

Breaking a small window is usually a lot easier and quieter than breaking a huge plate glass window.

But to spend so long at the scene just screams inside job. How could they know there wasn't a silent alarm?

Rich biatch Problems. *yawn*
 
2014-08-02 05:53:45 PM  
Oh no.  Her husband's "watch collection" was stolen.

At least now that this shiat is out of the 1 percenter's hands someone might end up paying some taxes on it at some point.
 
2014-08-02 05:55:04 PM  
I love a good heartwarming story.
 
2014-08-02 05:55:18 PM  
Where do I send the card of condolences?

/like I give a flying phark.
 
2014-08-02 05:56:20 PM  
I thought She Cave meant something else. I have so apologies to make.

Well their asses  do look amazing in those stolen shoes.

On the off chance that this isn't insurance fraud, the thief obviously would have seen her on TV and planned it out well.
 
2014-08-02 06:01:25 PM  
Am I supposed to feel sorry for this person? If someone ripped me off for everything I own, they'd be lucky to clear $500.
 
2014-08-02 06:02:13 PM  
Reminds me, I need to check out eBay for some good deals on accessories.
 
2014-08-02 06:05:37 PM  
" for one night I forgot to lock the big, huge glass door "

Yeah, that would've probably helped.

I don't know whether bragging about it on TV really hurt.  I'm going out on a limb here and guessing that everybody in her neighborhood was similarly wealthy and worth robbing.  For a haul like that it would be worth a thief's while to case the place for months if necessary, wouldn't it?

I wonder what the street value of a million dollars worth of Veblen goods is, though.  A $10,000 Rolex doesn't stay worth that when you steal it.

Old Man Winter: I thought She Cave meant something else. I have so apologies to make.


You're thinking "shame cave". It's an easy mistake to make. If it's any consolation, she probably wouldn't be able to afford her "she cave" if it wasn't for her "shame cave".
 
2014-08-02 06:08:57 PM  
Sounds like an inside job to me, thieves usually don't spend 40 minutes cleaning out your closet
 
2014-08-02 06:10:38 PM  
She is a "Fund Raiser" I can take a guess on what she did with that money she raised

Seems like charity is the next "big business" these days, people make tons of money begging for money for a cause, but it usually ends up in someone's pocket as "administrative" costs
 
2014-08-02 06:11:09 PM  
They took my rings, they took my rolex, I looked at the brotha said Damn whats next?
 
2014-08-02 06:14:29 PM  
I'm leaning more towards the fraud angle too, seems way to convient. Either that are she is a total and utter moron for going on TV and cosmo bragging about it. Guess she will find out how good her insurance is soon.
 
2014-08-02 06:14:53 PM  
Yeah not suspicious at all.

Her problem is she talks too much.

Oh and the dead give away - her "shame on me for not locking the door".

BS lady.
 
2014-08-02 06:14:53 PM  
I saw it said 3000 square feet and I sort of felt sorry for the millionaires living in a normal sized home and then I noticed their closet - well, HER closet was 3,000 square feet.

It seems suspicious to me.  I'm no burglar, but a woman's closet is not the first place I would think to look if I were.  Her jewelry box sure.  Clothing has got to be a pain in the ass to get a good return on the black market.  I'd steal her jewelry, her husband's jewelry, laptops, TVs, whatever, but not her clothing.

It's okay. I'm sure guys break into her vagina all the time, so it's a natural mistake.

O

h, you can file a claim.  Don't hold your breath waiting on a payout, though.

That drainage grate is an eyesore.

I like how she says she had the closet installed to host 'charity fundraisers'.  What a saint!

Why exactly is it a "shame cave"? Should women be ashamed of having one? Should they be ashamed of enjoying its use?
 
2014-08-02 06:25:11 PM  
Surprised there wasn't a fire from close proximity friction. Credit card statements and receipts for insurance premiums are dangerous to store in one place.

It's a term doctors use to diagnose those who are in desperate need of a stickuptheassendectomy.
