My wife and I recently moved into our very first home with our two-month-old son. We were happy to spend our first holiday as a family in our home.

On the evening of Jan. 4, our home in Cloverdale was broken into and raided. The criminals that entered our home were very meticulous, flipping our entire home upside down and taking everything they could get their hands on.

We were devastated to find our home in this state, but what is most upsetting is they took our camera and our laptops which contained all of our pictures. All of our pictures of our baby boy – including his birth and over the holidays – are gone.

We are reaching out as a plea to anyone who knows anything. All we want is our pictures back, no questions asked. We are even willing to offer a reward. And we also want to alert others in our community. Those who did this were not amateurs.

This is not how we expected to end our holidays and begin the new year.


Gary Sohi, Cloverdale
