Burglaries and thefts are the bane of both rural homeowners and law enforcement agencies in Pacific County. Thieves typically look for high-value, easy-to-sell items like chainsaws and jewelry, but that doesn’t stop them from taking a wide variety of other things.

January: “Pans and tennis shoes,” firewood, china, gas, cookies.

February: A will, checks, a Scion, pool cues, an “American Eskimo Dog,” produce, beer.

March: Truck batteries, medication, kitchen cabinets, a Boston Whaler boat, liquor.

April: Money from a coin machine, food from a restaurant, magnetic signs, a heater, a dirt-bike.

May: Garbage, a stamp, a tax return, an AR-15, eyeglasses, potting soil, trees, gates.

June: A Subaru, a Mazda, a license plate, “anything that could be returned to Home Depot.”

July: An American flag, 20 Kindle tablets, items from a vending machine, a tie-dyed shirt, a pink bike.

August: Shoes, a sign, a hanging basket, a tow-rope, “a bunch of frozen food”, fishing rods, a gold necklace that contained human ashes.

September: Strawberry baskets, a ladder, a towel, a boat motor, a wheelchair, a weight bench.

October: “No Trespassing” signs, motion-detecting lights, a well pump, a pink and black pistol.

November: A canoe, a barbecue, a cane, a bonsai plant, a “weed pen,” a pound of marijuana.

December: A disabled vehicle, aluminum cans, a doorknob, windows, a dog.
