For the last 10 years or so we have been awakened in the middle of the night to MANY alarm calls from Sam's store. 
  • It has always been very jarring to receive phone calls in the middle of the night (since the worst phone call we ever received came then too). 
  • Sam has to get up and drive the 20 miles to his store to meet the police there.  I always worry that he will doze off, get in an accident with a drunk driver, or somehow get in the middle of the robbery attempt at the store.
  • Whenever we get these calls my heart starts beating so hard that it takes me awhile to calm down.  This usually ensures that I will be minus at least 1-2 hours of sleep for that night. 
  • And the worst part is that they have never ever caught any of the thieves who have set off the alarms.....


Finally, after all these years, last night they caught one of the thieves.  Sam was so happy, I was happy, even the Bellevue police department was happy (They have been trying to catch these guys for awhile!)  Finally some sort of payoff to all these late night trips.  We kind of feel like we won the super bowl today.  Now if they can just get the charges to stick....
