When Amanda Isaacs walked inside her Richmond home along Merrick Drive, she immediately knew something wasn't right.

The safe in her kitchen had been pried open and items around the house were missing.

Last week, Isaacs' home was burglarized, with the thieves taking off with $25,000 worth of items, from collectable U.S. currency and stamps to hunting rifles and guns, some the family says date back to the Civil War.

The family says it's a crime that now has lasting effects, especially on the children who live there.

"The kids are scared to stay at home," says Tasana Isaacs, a relative of the victims. "They don't want to go upstairs and sleep because they're afraid someone is going to come in the house."
