Two words for you, MVPD: Inside job.

Check out the "friend", who may not be so "friendly" after all.

Go get'em, kids!

Yup, the butler probably did it, especially if the "friend who was staying with the couple" was named "Butler". :-)

It's sounding like an inside job.

Corrupt FBI and DEA employees where using sleep deprivation and other tortures to punish a suspect that complained to the San Francisco Federal D.A. office about them stealing from him.

Puzzled?! Hmmmm...sounds more like a police detective's clever ploy (via possible statements made to investigative reporters) in order to get a suspect to develop a false sense of security so that they will become lax, complacent and eventually screw up and make a self incriminating statement or mistake. That's the way Colombo would do it! :Q

My guess is that: the hosts are, perhaps.. too gullible or trusting, didn't know their guest / friend as well as they should have and perhaps lent the key to their guest long enough for that person to make a copy. Once that was done, the guest may have given the key to an accomplice to be used at the best possible opportunity. The guest could have also made a wax cast of the key which only takes a few seconds. Sudden changes in effect, usually follow sudden (possible) changes in cause. For example: nothing is stolen from a place of business since it began ,say...10 years ago and then suddenly, 3 days after the hire of a new employee, something expensive turns up missing. Who would you suppose did it?

It's a shame that most apartment complex owners don't let you keep a dog! Most dogs are tolerant of guests as long as the host(s) is/are present and it appears to them that they are welcome by the host(s), but if that self same guest or a 3rd party accomplice enters the premises and is not accompanied by the host it could (and rightfully should) get ugly fast! WOOF!!

Just 4 fun: DOG <--(rear view emote of a dog sitting and guarding..look again);)

Was the friend staying there due to financial hardship? Do the owners plan to recoup a bunch of money from the insurance claim?
C'MON! There's 3 suspects right there MVPD. Don't say you have zero suspects. If you say that, you're either lying or you're incompetent.
