Stuff might show up on Craigslist pretty soon.
In some countries when a thief is caught they just lop off a hand or a few fingers. I don't see this as cruel and unusual punishment.
Hope you get your stuff back and the thieves in jail.
From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."
Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
