Yes, my ex-husband and I were the victims of a robbery whilst we were still together -- someone stripped the stereo and a rather elaborate sound system out of his pickup. When we called the police they basically told him they weren't even going to try to do anything about it, because this sort of thing happens all the time and there's not much that can be done after the fact. This was in a town of 5,000 people. Needless to say, it was never recovered. Since it was a small town we had a couple of ideas of who it might have been, but that's as close as that ever got. And no, it didn't really have a major long-term effect. Now, the time an extremely drunk man broke into our house and was sitting there waiting for us when we got home from work, THAT had a fairly profound effect though he never took anything.
