Please return the computer

November 8, 2010 |

EDITOR: Recently my Astro Van was broken into near the corner of Racquet Road and Wimbledon Drive in Diamond Springs. A number of items were stolen, the most significant of which was my laptop computer. By now, those of you who stole the computer and the other items have found that this computer is more then 10 years old and so slow that it is of little use to you.

The computer does have the only photos of my wife’s grandmother’s 95th birthday. Big Mama passed away a few years ago, but these photos and others are important to my family. We only moved into this Racquet/Wimbledon neighborhood at the beginning of October. We were forced to move from our previous rental when our landlord was foreclosed upon by her bank. This is the second in two years that we have had to move due the forclosure of a landlord’s property. This, coupled with being laid off from El Dorado County’s General Service Department in 2008, has made a very difficult time for my family.

Finally, the Sheriff’s Office can do little to help since it is a petty crime and they have their limited resources concentrated on other, more serious crimes.

So here is my appeal. Considering the age of this computer and its limitations, I ask for the computer’s return. You can keep the other items from the car, but return the laptop, no questions asked. Here is my number 530-391-6473. Call or text me with the computer’s location.

Give use back Big Mama’s photos and we can all go our separate ways.
