    with/along with

    Are these sentences correct:
    1-Along with my money and my computer, the burglars stole a few objects of no particular value.
    2-With my money and my computer, the burglars stole a few objects of no particular value.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    The first is fine. The second makes it sound as if the burglars somehow used your money and computer to steal a few more things.

    I would use "as well as" rather than "along with".
