Can you enquire if anyone in the neighborhood is missing 4 Christmas plates, I think from Nov. 23? There was packing paper strewn through the alley and 4 plates on the neighbor's trash can. He said they were not his plates and put them in his house. If someone claims them, I am sure that he will give them up.
I have now had several things stolen. Two suitcases were taken out of the trunk of my friends' car when they were leaving the day after Thanksgiving. I have been waiting for a package to be delivered. I just spoke with the manufacturer who says UPS delivered it on 11-30-2012 by leaving it on my front steps. I have never seen it, leaving me to believe it too was stolen.
