"I mean, they wiped us out."

Ryan Mann came home Wednesday night to find his apartment completely ransacked.

"They clearly went through every single drawer and threw everything out...and erin's jewelry too." said Mann.

Burglars hit while Ryan was at work. Thankfully, his wife Erin wasn't at home when they broke in.

"Our computers gone, iPod's gone, family heirlooms, Borsheim earrings, Coach purses..." said Mann.

Ryan is a bartender. He had thousands of dollars in cash he had been saving.

"My tin was on the bed and my passport and my car title and birth certificate...but all my money was gone." said Ryan.

The only thing burglars missed...Ryan and Erin's wedding money. They had hidden it in the closet. It is now in the bank.

After the burglars ransacked the bedroom, they did even more damage. They swung open a door and left a hole in it. They also left a whole in a almost looked like they punched it.

Ryan said, 'Until yesterday, I thought we lived in a very safe place."

The couple lives in the Regis Building downtown. They have no idea how someone got in.

Ryan says you have to have a personal key to even get into the lobby. There are surveillance cameras in four locations around the building.

Then, you have to use a key code in the elevators.

"The cops were great. They brought in the crime lab and dusted for fingerprints." said Ryan.

The total loss...Ryan said between the cash and valuables the couple is out about 10-thousand dollars.

"I don't know if it was a random act or something more. I hope we can find something out." said Ryan.

Ryan hopes by sharing this story it will alert other residents in the Regis Building to be on the lookout.

While we were there, the couple had new deadbolts put on their door.

They hope the surveillance video will help lead to an arrest.
