    That's awful man. I've been hit over 2 dozen times this year alone. It's all small stuff too: 5 pound trimmer spools, gas cans, pump sprayers. Once I found my mower messed with, but it didn't get taken because it was locked to my trailer. BTW, I'm in Stockbridge but work all of Henry, Clayton, and Fayette Counties. Metro Atlanta has become saturated with thieves. My plumber/electrician/hvac friends are all getting hit regularly too (vans getting broken into and cleaned out). Good luck.

    Yes! Its getting so bad out here in the Atlanta metro area. And the pawn shop owners are just as bad knowingly accepting equipment they know are stolen just to turn a small profit.

    I mounted a game camera in my box truck to snap pics of thieves

    I have a security camera in my truck that caught them. I was trying to show the police officer but he was so busy running my insurance and tags on my truck and trailer and license and serial number on my equipment. While waiting for him to do all that I accidentally deleted the footage!
