Default Burglary

A friend, living in a 'good' suburb in Auckland, was burgled recently. He has very little of value in his rented place but the scumbags took the following items: duvet, vacuum cleaner, motorbike leathers/helmet/gloves, work uniform, t-shirts, jeans, 2 suits, long sleeved shirts and other random things.

They didn't touch his dvds/cds (probably didn't like his taste in films or music); TV; dvd player; laptop; foreign coins that were in a big jar; shoes (they obviously didn't like the look or smell of them!); ties (maybe they didn't know what they were?); neither did they touch the bike on the driveway.

The police didn't seem to be too bothered or surprised at the strange haul. My friend has been keeping an eye on Trade Me to see if anything turns up and he was positive he recognised one of the suits so told the police who didn't bother to follow it up.

Does anybody else think this is strange that they took mostly old clothes and left valuable items behind?

Obviously a technophobe biker with no clothes a dirty carpet and an empty linen cupboard.

The best ones to burgle, no point stealing from poor people who have no possessions or cheap rubbish.

But that is my point... my friend lives in a good area but his possessions were not expensive ie his clothes were old, low quality/work wear; a used duvet?? ; an old vacuum?? and they left the higher value items
