Did you pin lock it....have you googled it or contacted Nintendo to see if they can lock it?

But I think these places would be best place to start asking..

don’t let them get you down, I hope you were insured...

The unit itself wasn't locked but they wont be able to buy anything via restore. Fortunately!
They will probably hard reset it and own it as their own.
It should have an i.p that can be tracked
"Turd burglar".

Thought that meant something different

It does, unfortunate choice of words by OP.
@luvadealme sorry to here about your break in.

Hope your insurance deal with things quickly for you.

Such a horrible feeling been broken into.

I hope you are ok
Sorry, I don't know anything about the nintendo; I'd suggest asking Biddy over in JHT - he (and also andy@Xcite) know a lot about nintendo stuff.

More sorry to hear about the break-in - horrid feeling.

Also sorry to add hard truth as a warning - there's a high chance they'll visit again - sorry, but if there's any measures needing to be taken i.e. burglar alarm, new locks etc take them now.

Hope I'm wrong about the revisit, all the best.

Sorry to heart one was recently stolen too

I can’t find any way to trace it

But you can download a parental control app on your phone and limit the play on your switch to 15min a day
That’s the only thing I was able to do.
