    Had a chainsaw that I left in the bed of my truck that was backed up to my house. On top of that it was pouring ass rain all weekend. I feel like someone is constantly checking up to see what I left out. I say this b/c in the past year I've had my truck broke in and a trimmer stolen (which was totally my fault) BTW I came in from a job and left it out there just tryin to hurry and get inside and forgot about it. But I got something for those lil bastards. I'm puttin up a deer cam this weekend and I'm gonna bait them by puttin an old power tool of some sort out there and figure out who in the hell is doin this. Time for a lil vigilante justice!!!!! Premo style!

    Deer cams work but landmines work better for payback..LOL.. My father told me a story one time about his shed getting broken into all the time. What he did was put an old stripped ext. cord on the gate and pluged itin at night. People stopped breaking in.. 120 volts suck when your not expecting it...LOL Sorry for your loss and better luck to you next time..

    I'm hoping I can nail this guy. I feel like it's the same person only because the chainsaw was left out when it was pouring rain and you couldn't see it. So there was nothing to attract him up here. Plus the truck was backed up to the house and you couldn't see in the back of it if you wanted to. So my plan is to nab a picture of him, file a police report, find the perp and try to convince him to gimme my chit back before he finds out the cops are involved. I feel like he's local as well, like within a mile or so of me.
