A woman was horrified to find that a thief raided her freezer and took her food while her kids were in the house.

Mel Evans of Castlecliff, New Zealand, is warning residents to keep their refrigerator and freezer locked after a thief stole everything out of her freezer.

Evans said that she was hanging laundry outside her home when the theft occurred. The freezer is opposite the door and she left the door open as she went to the clothesline.

Evans said that she was freaked out by the theft as her 3-year-old daughter was in the living room and her 7-month-old son was sleeping in his bedroom while the robber emptied out her freezer.

When Evans came back into her home, she found her freezer door open and empty. The packages of frozen meat, including chicken thighs, steaks and schnitzel, were gone. She also had two loaves of bread. The thief only took one loaf.

Evans is not sure if the person waited for her to leave the house and how long he had been watching her. “He must have known my partner was not home,” Evans said.

Evans admitted that she is uncomfortable in the home since the break-in. She and her family will be moving next week, after living in the house for 10 months.

Evans has been telling other residents to put locks on their freezers and to keep an eye out for the robber.
