    Check all of your pockets -- I understand pocket thief's are real common.

    Larry, that IS strange. Could they have fallen into hiding perhaps?

    Hard to figure out how or why thieves work. I thought you lived a little off the beaten path? Seems like it'd take a pretty bold thief to sneak up to your place.

    Maybe they thought the keys were the keys to your shop or house and are planning on coming back at some later date?

    How about the possibility of a 4 legged thief? Some little varmints like things that shine and jingle.
