Thanks to Reddit, this family was able to uncover their thief. The story originally started with a missing $4,900 watch. After reviewing their security footage, the family discovered that it was their daughter’s friend who had stolen the watch from the father’s home office. Surprisingly, the daughter had a suspicion it was her friend because she had noticed a few of her jewelry pieces missing. For context, she has three other siblings, so when her stuff went missing, she honestly thought it was just one of her sibs ‘borrowing’ her things. A classic sibling move.
The parents wanted the watch back but didn’t want to involve the police because they didn’t want to ruin the young girl’s future. Originally, they turned to Reddit for some advice. Fellow Redditors told them that they should confront the girl’s parents, so they did. This is where things get weird. It turns out this had been going on for months, and it wasn’t just jewelry. And the cherry on top? She sold most of their things online. Keep reading to get the full story behind why the girl was stealing (the answer might make you think differently of her) and what the family decided to do about their missing things.
