God d*** thieves

Bought a receiver hitch cargo carrier for my Fuso camper last weekend. Drove the truck to school Tuesday and since the roads were slick I didn't want it sticking out that extra couple of feet, so I took it off and leaned it up against the side of my house. As I was taking out the recycling this morning I noticed it was gone. Jeezuz it pisses me off. I'm in a rancid mood.

Go to the closest steel recycler and buy it back for about $5.00. That has been going on here all summer people were steeling alluminum 911 signs, trailer hitches, siding and catalytic converters.

****** crackheads.

I'd make sure I filed a police report FIRST, then go and check to see if you're lucky enough the f'ing crackheads sold it to a re-cycler, then if they did, let the re-cycler know he's in receipt of stolen property, show them the copy of your report, get your stuff back with an "I sorry, didn't know..." Otherwise, report the re-cycler to the cops and let them, probably, uncover more than just your little item...problem is, they may be taking in more than just a few knick-knacks from the cracks... (Sorry, couldn't resist!)

Hopefully, you had it marked, discreetly, so you can ID it properly...

Not marked. House next door is being rebuilt. There are a fair number of low life workers on the crew. I suspect them.

Offer a reward...see what that gets you...

Or, post a note saying you have the incident on tape, give them 24 hours to NICELY set the property back on yours, or the tape gets turned over to the coppers...

Thanks for the notification...I am installing my system...starting this weekend...following the overnight concert and before the SB starts...

(4 color cameras, 250GB HD, Low-lite (< 2 lux), 330 line-res (over 4 weeks of recording 24/7/365 on all 4 cameras!)...all for $800.00...)

My thoughts exactly. Kerry I feel for you. If you check out the low lifes next door, I bet you will find one with a brand new cargo carrier on their truck next week!

Do you think a guy who fixes his coffeemaker would buy a brand new cargo rack? It was a Craigslist find. I'm already back on there looking for another one.
