Sorry if this is the wrong place for this kind of thing, I tried to post in the Central Coast/South Coast community pages but didn't have permission. The police just recovered a safe thought to be stolen near me in Paso Robles and are looking for the owner.

Safe with $200K-plus of gold coins, jewelry, cash stolen from Atascadero home (http://www.sanluisobispo.com/2010/03/11/v-print/1063711/atascadero-gold-cash-safe-stolen.html)
Antonio A. Prado
Police say that burglars stole a safe with more than $200,000 worth of gold coins, jewelry and cash from an Atascadero home Wednesday.

The burglars likely broke in between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., and seemed specific as to what they wanted to steal from the home on Fresno Avenue — between San Jacinto and Rosario avenues — the Atascadero Police Department said Thursday.

Officers found a rear bedroom window broken, police said. A woman who lives there had reportedly returned home to find her front door wide open.

Burglars used a furniture dolly from the garage to move the safe out of the house and to an awaiting vehicle, police said.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information toward solving the case.

Call police at 461-5051, Crime Stoppers at 549-7867, send a text message starting with “SLOTIPS” to 274637 or visit http://snipr.com/slocrimestoppers.

That's how the guys who stole it got it out of the house.

They drilled that hole you see next to the door and pumped it full of helium!

It doesn't take that long to break into your average safe. Do a little research and you'll find videos of just how easy it is. If it had been bolted down, it would have been a bit harder to get into it.

I used 4 of these concrete anchors with 2-inch washers. My safe isn't going anywhere.

You need a hammer-drill to use these. You can rent a hammer-drill for a few bucks but why pass up the opportunity to buy a tool?

The fact is though, a gas-powered circular saw will zap through almost any gunsafe in seconds. I have to laugh at that picture, total amateur hour.

The real question is who keeps $200K+ of gold coins, cash, etc. in a small $3-4k safe that weighs only 700lbs? Maybe they should have invested a little more in the safe / security system. Even a couple 110lb rottweilers might have prevented this loss.

If it's not bolted down, it's easy.

Steel rods
Golf balls
Ice

200 grand is a lot of motivation. They used a dolly that was in the garage. If I had 200 grand worth of gold and jewelry, I would have an alarm system, the safe would have been bolted down and no one would know I had the safe full of goodies. So either this person was stupid, or is trying to pull a scam on the Insurance company. This reeks of an inside job. Kid's or friends.

+1. The average burglar isn't rolling around with a furniture dolly and the means to bust into a huge safe. Let alone getting "lucky" and "finding" 200k in gold coins:rolleyes:

How does chrystal help? Or is it the reason?


Seriously - the steel rods and/or golf balls I understand, but how is ice used? I would think it'd just crush.

Well actually I wouldn't be putting it into a gun safe, but a real TL rated jeweler's safe bolted and weighing a ton with said alarm system with multiple types of alerts.

If the safe is in the garage, ice down the floor, dump the safe onto it's side onto the ice, and let her slide down the driveway.

Police say that burglars stole a safe with more than $200,000 worth of gold coins, jewelry and cash from an Atascadero home Wednesday.
Detectives are trying to locate the owner of a gun safe that was found broken into in a Paso Robles river bed in late November.

The maroon safe was found east of Penman Springs and Linne roads in rural Paso Robles on Nov. 28, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Department.

Unless somebody went back to the future, I don't think it's the same safe.
