    Some bum made off w/one of my equipment trailers, a 6.5x12 tandem wheel landscaping trailer that I transport my 4 wheeler and golf cart on. The crook was so brazen that they came in my yard and took it when I was at work. Think is my yard is 600 yds deep and the trailer could not be seen from the road. I filed a police report but we all know how that goes. I got to thinking, it takes a thief to catch a thief so being that there's no honor among thieves I am going to turn the tide so to speak. I am going to post fliers locally which will offer a $5K reward for information of the return of the aforementioned trailer and the capture and conviction of thieving bum. I think his buddies will sing. Oh well, had to vent.

    Precisely, but its the moral of the thing. I'll still buy another trailer but when a crook is caught by a homeowner the community will take notice along w/other crooks. I am convinced that it was someone that knew me or knew my schedule.

    That happens a lot around here. Any time of day or night. They cut chains and most locks easily.
    Trailers and construction equipment are biggees. Along with copper. I don't know if people have less morals now or that there is just more people and a certain % of those are going to be thieves. Whatever it is its out of control. I see garages now parking autos against their doors to keep out the crooks

    I have found your trailer, Um I will deliver it to you and pick up thet 5g... You are so right. They knew you. They knew you was at work, They had to know the trailer was sitting there. Thats the suckest thing about all of it. They knew you.
