The 30 Second Mystery 64 - Why?

There are four categories: Who, What, Where and Why. Some will be easy, some not. I have as many as six clues to help you along, which I'll supply as needed.

Please limit yourself to one guess, and another guess for each clue I supply. No questions asking for help or hints are allowed. Partially correct answers won't be acknowledged.

Wild guesses and comments are fine. In fact, they can add to the mystery and are fun to read. Be precise when guessing.

The Case:
A group of uniformed men enter a house in broad daylight and take every possession that a family owns. The family does not report it to the police, but find their belongings three days later.

The Mystery:
Why didn't the family call the police?

To further the answer from bparker805, just in case, the men in uniform were international movers, hence the three day wait. If they were just standard removals men the family would have "found" their belongings much quicker!

cowudder14,
ok, so your response is a little more detailed and precise. I will now step down from this contest and defer all honor and glory to you.

Bah! Too bad I have a thing called "class" to go to, that was an easy one.

actually I think bparker has it, because the "international movers" detail is wrong. It takes more than 3 days to move across the country. It takes FAR more than 3 days to move to another country

Oh yeah much longer than 3 days, when my family moved to england when I was in 4th grade, it took 2 weeks for our air shipment to get there and 2 months for our sea shipment to get there.
