trailer and truck were locked up. they had to jimmy the door and hot wire the truck to steal. come to find out two house down from me they found a honda pilot stolen just sitting there. So im guessing the stole the car seen my truck and said thats a bigger catch and left the car and took the truck & trailer.

Flea market better known as the "hot market". Lots of stollen lawn equipment there. Know somebody who had eqipment stolen. Went down to the market, found some of it (it was even engraved) called the cops. They told him to buy it back if he wanted it so badd. They could only get the guy for possesion of stolen property. Not worth their time. It's a "victomless crime" LOL One of our customers who had a Dixie Chopper stolen is a detroit cop out of the 6th precient. He said he did'nt even bother to file a report, it was worthless. His chopper was 10 years old at the time, and he did'nt have any insurance. Good luck finding your stuff. A lot of the trucks and trailers end up being recovered, but i have never heard of the equipment showing up.

Right well around here "possession" is a felony but what you speak of is not unheard of either, that is the number ONE reason I never call the police, forget those guys here's what you do:
1. Just grab your doggone equipment, if you see what's yours to begin with you take it back.
2. No fool will say a word to you but if anyone does grab that SOB by the throat and read him your mind.

Sorry to hear that. If your insurance company cuts you a check quickly, you can have newer equipment, and be up and running in no time. It is still an added stress that you don't need mid-season. Good luck! You are insured?

dude sorry its gone,
those thieves are professionals. they get like semi trailers so when they steal it they just drive it in semi traiers and the semi takes it to where its cool. sale off the equipment. as far as the dump, crooked bone yard piece them out.
its like a person is going to have to build a garage jus so people wont steal there stuff, bunk.

Well last time i posted it was 07-14-08 and here i am agian post that after 7 months of looking the Michigan State Police have finally found one of my trucks. The best part of it, was that the truck was sitting in a inpound yard since November. Ploice told me that there was computer problems thats why it took so long for D.P.D to contact them. Dont know what the truck looks like wont know till friday. NO TRAILER OR EQUIPMENT. didnt think they find it anyway. well as soon as i get pics i post them. thanks
