    I notice with my old boss we had some kids that stole and its usually the drug losers from the valley. One left a sandle behind and we knew the kid that always wears sandles.

    Then we had one that stole a street bike from a worker and we were in a truck and saw the kid riding it and we chased him and the cops caught him, LOL. Talk about luck.

    Its usually someone that is a big company or had bad workers or someone that knows you.

    Most I hear are from the valley, most are poor, and do drugs.

    Yeah, most of the ser. #'s have been given to the police, I know most likely we are not going to see anything but maybe something will come up. In our area guys have been getting hit with lots of thefts over 5 companies in town have had equipment or trucks stolen and lots of stuff has broken trying to steal trucks and larger equipment, think with the economy it is just going to get worse. Thankyou for keeping your eyes out.

    I know, I wonder if he had any luck recovering his equipment or if they caught the guy that did it.

    One of my good friends had a couple blowers and trimmers stolen this past fall along with the new bagger off his walk behind. Left the trailer hooked to the truck outside for 2hours and comes back to half his stuff missing.
