Staged Homes Getting Burglarized

New, 1 comment

As if things weren't bad enough already for real estate agents, burglars are taking their smash-and-grab ops to staged homes in the East Bay now, making off with all the tasteful Crate & Barrel furnishings within. Various police types can attest that they've never seen anything quite like it, or at least nothing to this degree. In the past month, there have been four cases in Piedmont, where thieves took "thousands of dollars worth of furniture, mirrors, bed linens, pillows and even a flat-screen television." Time to swap in those IKEA fakies. [Oakland Trib]
