Riccardo Simonetti had all 200 of his sunglasses stolen during a move. His mother started tracking. The glasses reappeared with a neighbor who apologized.

Berlin – Influencer Riccardo Simonetti (29) is in the middle of moving stress. He actually lost two of his moving boxes – with 200 pairs of sunglasses in them! Many of these have an emotional meaning for the influencer, but otherwise there are some designer pieces. It is clear that Simonetti would like to have her back and started a desperate call for help to his fans via Instagram. Thanks to his mother’s detective skills, all the pieces turned up again.

It sounds like a CSI episode, what Riccardo Simonetti is telling his followers. 200 sunglasses were simply stolen, he had already given up hope. But his mother remained adamant and stuck behind it: “She really managed to find out who stole these glasses,” says Simonetti.

Riccardo Simonetti goes on to tell how he got his valuable glasses back: “I made a story asking for tips and then a few neighbors got in touch with me and maybe gave me a tip or two. My mother then spoke to everyone in my neighborhood and interviewed them and found out that a neighbor had a delivery at a certain time.”

It overlapped with the timing of the goggles’ disappearance. Simonetti’s mother stayed behind, drove to the delivery service’s headquarters and some time later the call came: all the glasses have turned up again – at the suspected neighbor’s.

“The man who stole them apologized and said it was a huge mistake,” explains Simonetti. The man thought it was a gift box. Simonetti is not convinced that this is true, but primarily because he is happy to have all his sunglasses back: “I cried snot and water all morning,” he says. And further: “For me, this is like an urban fairy tale”.
