    • Wow that’s a hell of a belief.  For me though that is something I could not skirt around.  I would come out and say to Ms Sally, Look Sally donot mean to accuse you outright but Ihave a strong feeling that you took my keys.  I donot know why, maybe you think it is a joke or you want a certain reaction from me but whatever it is, it is over and I will appreciate that you hand over my keys or tell me where they are.  It is that plain and simple.  Having keys made is not an option that you want either and to change keyes well for my car you have to go change the ignition part so call a spade a spade and confront her, I will.

    • I totally agree with Brimstone,

      I had a guy friend some years ago steal my 2 carat tennis bracelet off my dresser and no one was in the house but he and I and when he left it left I called his butt right up and told him I knew he had it and if he didn’t return it ASAP my brothers and the PO-Po’s would be at his door, girl I tell you he was at my door within 30 minutes laughing and trying to lie about playing a joke on me NOT! He was either going to pawn it, sell it or give it to one of his tramps. When he came back with it I told him to never call me or come docking my door ever again and he never has.

    • I would confront them straight up. I’m not careless with my keys or anything else and as Brimstone’s mentioned, it’s costly to change the ignition of a vehicle.

    • My question is this WHY!!!? did they even take your keys its not like they can take the car? What is the motive behind it? Is it to cost you money to have a new ignition and keys made for the car or what how devilish is that!?

    • How did it happen?  Do they live with you?  You said Neighbor and I am confused.

      If you do not want to break the friendship, I would say “that’s strange!  I am sure my odo was at xxx last night and today when I started the car, the odo was at xxx.  It appeared someone has driven my car.  Do you happen to know why?”

      or just confront him/her like others said.  

      Meanwhile, safe keep your keys and anything else.

    • I rent to this person on my property.  This person entered my life and became friends with me quickly.  I am 99% my keys were stolen.  This person was the only one on the property at the time.  The only reason I can see this person did this to me is a sick kind of envy or jelousy???? And yes if you do not have a second set of keys to your car get one now.  This cost me over 400.00 as my key had a computer chip in it that communicated with my car.  This person caused a lot of pain for me.  I am struggeling with the fact that there is a 1% chance that this person did not take my keys.  Yes, I did confront this person and now this person has gone balistic screaming and yelling they did not do it and how could I accuse of such a thing.  The situation has gotten worse and now I am afraid of what will happen next until I can evict this person.  If there was a chance at all that this was done by someone else I don’t think I could forgive myself for accusing an inocent person.

    • But would an innocent person go ballistic on you? If it was me you thought took your car keys and I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be screaming at you over it. A 1% chance it wasn’t your tenet is pretty dang slim chances.  

      Keep your house doors locked and valuables safely put away, don’t let the person inside unless you will be present the whole time. These are tough times and people will do some crazy things, so protect yourself.  

      All the best to you!

    • Years ago my girlfriend accused my sister of stealing her diamond ring and yes my sister went off on her because she didn’t do it.  Several month’s later when she remodeled she found the ring had fallen behind a bookcase.  She never even apologized to my sister.  We were always brought up to never accuse anyone of stealing unless you had 100% proof.

      Oh, and also my friend filed it on her homeowners and collected $$.  She didn’t bother to return the $$ to the insurance company either.

      Sad you had to go through this.  I have had things stolen from me and it’s a real drag, you work hard for what you have and someone feel’s they are entitled to it.

    • Sweetie you need to report this matter.  Whether or not it is your neighbour it needs to be reported because this seems like smoke to a potential fire.  Screaming, ranting and raving is not a good sign either.  Also just like he has been helping you look for the keys he needs to know you have called the police.  I love documentation of things, I guess I am that way because I worked at a law firm.  This is an invasion of your privacy and you need to reconsider your locks to your home also.  It is so much better to take the necessary precaution than to have a lifetime of regrets.  I wish you well and pray you are safe.  Have a nice day.

    • Should I still make a police report even if has been a few days? I have searched my house so well the only thing left to do is to start tearing out the sheet rock! lol.. What good does this do if I did not see the person do it? No proof no evidence?

    • There won’t be any follow up from the police without proof or evidence since you can’t file a complaint against your renter without it.
