    It's obviously infuriating to have something stolen from you but I wonder how many of those stolen items were locked up or if keys were left in ignitions. It happens here and probably everywhere else also. You can see camera footage where thieves grab a door handle and if it's locked they move on and grab another car handle. Sad but we must lock stuff up. I'm going away this weekend. My gates are locked and my trailers have tongue and wheel locks as well as locks on the trailer doors. A thief will have to work semi hard to get to it.

    This has been happening all over the country for several years now. I buddy of mine has a yard in Carlstadt in Bergen country and two years ago he had all his blowers, wackers and one ZTR stolen. They broke into a fenced yard with razor wire in an industrial area, loaded everything they could and were gone in moments.

    Good chance that $20 cut guy in the blue smoke pickup got his equipment below wholesale. Now we know how he gets away with it.
