Are you talking about a rental trailer where you were storing your property?

Have you called the police to file a report?

.

What makes you think they would come back?

Any idea who might have done this?

Where is the U Haul parked?

I'm talking about a uhaul rental storage unit similar to the one located on***** Atlanta, GA 30329.I haven't called the police as I'm nervous and don't know what to do.I'm thinking its an inside job because I have had another problem happen which was my key to my lock wasn't working and I believed they changed it that time so I had to cut the lock off and get another lock put on.Someone cut my new lock I put on and put their own weak lock on it. I break their lock and put my newest lock on it because the u haul employee claims he is unable to break the lock today to find out if my stuff is stolen. So he tells me to come back tomorrow.

Here is a picture of the lock someone put on it.

Ok, I don't really understand why you would be nervous about calling the police unless there was something in the unit that shouldn't have been in there.....

.

But regardless, I would check to see if the facility has video cameras....most of them do so you should be able to get a copy of any surveillance tape so you can see if you recognize the person who did it.

.

If you feel that they may return, if it was me, I would try to set up some type of hidden camera in the unit with motion activation to record it if they open the door and enter the unit. Then you can catch them red handed and call the police or take up things with them personally if you recognize them..
