He was flying back from his mother's memorial service in May when his daughter called and told him the house was on fire. In the months following, he's moved twice. The initial relocation to 14th Avenue and G Street did not go well thieves broke into his wife's vehicle twice, and his car was stolen twice, he said.


It could be a sad story or it could be an insurance fraud scheme. From what the article states, he has had a string of bad luck recently.

Moving a safe that large would require some planning.

Possibly, this was an inside job by a family member or "friend" of the family who knew the victim would be at the funeral. I'd expect the police to be scrutinizing those folks; especially so, any who have a record.

Guys, it only gives the dimensions of the safe and it sounds like a gun safe. Very flimsy and easy to move around. Even easier to crack open

Yep description sounds like a gunsafe. Easy to wheel away with a simple appliance dolly.

I use a gun safe, myself .... one that's seriously bolted to a wall. Nothing seems foolproof, nowadays, but the more time theives take and the more noise they make, the better.

I'd encourage all collectors to have some really unusual items in their collection. The more unusual, the greater the chance that any stolen items will be traceable and perhaps recovered. I'm thinking of relatively inexpensive exonumia here, stuff that will make pawn brokers do a double-take, question and be more likely to form a lasting impression.

Those big-box safes are fine if you're just trying to keep your kids' hands off your firearms or Playboy collection. As mentioned (and demonstrated in the YouTube video), they will be no problem for a determined criminal with a pry-bar.

Buy a safe for what it is intended for and pay attention to its various ratings and certifications. Even many theft-deterrent safes are not fireproof, so keep that in mind if you want fire protection for your valuables as well. I have a fireproof mini-safe inside my large safe for important documents, USB sticks with photos, and such.

As always do your research and bolt down your safe where possible.
