Everyone needs to pay very close attention to detail in trying to prevent theft, as the economy continues to erode, theft will continue to rise.

All of our rack have rhino locks and the other racks have been augmented with log chains and heavy locks. When a piece of equipment is done, it goes back to the truck if possible. Other than that it is hidden inside some shrubbery.........underneath or somewhere compatible that the orange color isn't noticed readily. Just don't forget the equipment.
A few years ago, at a commercial newspaper office, we left a 10 ft. ladder behind a row of hollies. It was there all fall until we remembered where it was at.......the next time we serviced the site. It was still there!!!!!!!! On a sour note............we have had about 4 blowers stolen over the years. This was from employee neglect.

I hope the bus just grases him and he suffers fully alert for a long time before painfully dying.

Stealing equipment over the past years was related to drug need, I am afraid this economy is now promoting (need for food) stealing as well.

I just did an inventory and I as well have a BR600 unaccounted for... less than 60 days old... I'd venture to say it was an inside job....but I need to ask the usual folks to see if its at home being used or was borrowed and forgot to return...

Man I feel for ya. I went out to my truck (in my driveway) on Saturday morning and everything in it was turned upside down. I live in a very nice neighborhood, on the end of a Court, and have a street light in my front yard. I couldn't believe it. Neighbor said they heard their dogs bark at 2 AM, but assumed it was a cat or other animal in the yard.

I forgot to lock it that night, AND forgot to take my $450 dollar Panasonic LX3 landscape camera in with me....GONE! My fault I suppose, but to the best of my knowledge, that had never happened in my area. Makes me sick to my stomach.

I hate a thief...:cry:
