On September 19, 2022, Tori Roloff of Little People, Big World announced that she had been burgled. The reality star was on her way to get her hair done when someone smashed a window in her car and grabbed a wallet that was inside the vehicle.
“Why do people suck so badly?” Roloff captioned the first photo, which showed broken glass all over the passenger seat of her car. “Everyone is safe,” she captioned another image on her Instagram Stories. “Someone really wanted an empty wallet. I’m so glad I was alone and my kids weren’t with me,” she added.
Roloff and her husband Zach are parents to three young children, Jackson, Lilah and Josiah.
The TLC star went on to explain what happened after receiving several worrying messages.
Here’s what you need to know:
Roloff shared some videos telling her Instagram followers that she wasn’t in her car, wasn’t hurt and that the burglar wasn’t making out. However, the incident was scary.
“K, so I just wanted to jump up here and say thank you to everyone who has reached out and asked if I’m okay and completely fine. I wasn’t in my car. I got my hair done. So thank goodness I wasn’t anywhere near my car,” she said.
“I just felt so hurt and kind of gross, like coming to my car like that was just the worst feeling,” she explained. “And some are so stupid because whoever did it, they didn’t get anything. There was nothing in the wallet that was lying there. And we immediately called our banks to have our cards blocked,” she continued.
“So thanks to whoever did that. They cost me $400 to have my window replaced and my goodness if you’re in Vancouver, be careful. People are the worst,” she added.
Roloff told her followers about a Gospel reading she had heard at church just the day before the incident.
“Okay, I also thought this would be a good time to share this because yesterday during church the sermon was all about how to respond to crises,” she said. She went on to tell a story about the Scriptures, referring to Mark 4:35.
“It’s about how all these fishermen got on their boat and a storm came and they all freaked out and then they realized Jesus was on the boat,” she said. The fishermen woke him up and he asked them why they had no faith. According to the gospel, Jesus calmed the storm.
“It just reminded me because that’s how we respond to crises [sic] is not always the normal or best way to do this. Even a small crisis like this puts everything in a larger perspective. It’s like Jesus has this and it’s just a car,” she concluded.
