A woman is reporting that her son's Lake Elsinore apartment was burglarized today, and she's hoping witnesses can help catch the thief -- or thieves.

The alleged burglary occurred between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday in the 200 block of N. Chestnut Street at Franklin Street, according to the mother.

Stolen were three televisions, a computer and two monitors, she said. 

"In total, they got away with about $8,000 in his stuff!" she reported.

"If anybody knows someone trying to sell stuff like this for cheap, please contact the Lake Elsinore Police. Please help get the scum off the street," she pleaded, noting that her son worked hard for the items.

According to the mother, police have been contacted. The Lake Elsinore Police Department can be reached at (951) 245-3300. Citizens may also submit anonymous tips using the sheriff's CrimeTips online form.

It's probably somebody he knows who tweaks! Who has he let over into the home the past two months? That should help!

I know this lady's anguish. My son worked and saved up for 2 years to buy a vintage Ibanez rocket roll guitar. It was stolen while his father was asleep in another room with the door closed, along with his X box and laptop. It crushed him, as the guitar will be next to impossible to replace. That was more than a year ago. Although we had serial numbers and made a police report, none of the items were ever recovered. My son has since moved to Montana where there is a nicer element of people. I'm sorry for this ladies son. It's very devastating to work hard for something and then have it taken away by some low life.

Thanks for the advise. Although we haven't allowed any tweakers in to our home :) My husband was so crushed about his computer. He built it himself !!! The worst part is feeling violated. Even if we can work to replace the items eventually, at any moment we could come home to the same situation. Its very unfortunate and hard to feel comfortable or safe in your own home after. - The sons wife
