A good wake up call for me to start putting the lock back on my (open) trailer. It's not likely to be stolen, but if it were, it would be difficult to get by without it.

I guess that's the drawback to having a "secure" enclosed trailer to keep your things in. A truck with a ball can take it all in one swoop.

Sorry to hear it, my friend.

veteranslawncaresystems 05-08-2012 01:15 PM

ya well must have been two trucks both trailers are gone. and they cut the locks off the trailers to hook up looks like they used a cutting tourch

And no one saw this? Funny how neighbors are noisy at the wrong times.

I hope you recover everything. The trailers are a no brainier since they cant be registered. I would be worried about the contents inside.

Holy crap. They were seriously interested in your stuff.

There's a special place in hell for filth like that. A thief (ANY type of thief) is one of the lowest forms of life in my book. May they get what's coming to them.

CHEESE2009 05-08-2012 01:26 PM

Holy crap, I'm sorry to hear man.

There must me some way... Maybe a local store will have video footage of the area that they can show police?!
Ask around fast because some places record over previous days footage. The guy must have passed at least one gas station!


Also, I was thinking that this theft might of been pretty close for them to have the nerve to take both trailers within the time you were at the doctors?

Keep checking eBay and Your equipment might pop up online. If it does, book a place and time to meet the guy;

a. Inform the police of the meeting.




OH and, the person who stole it probably has a van or a truck with a hitch!!!!
Chances are it may very well be your competition, they have the real NEED for the equipment.
Go check around their shops and see what you can come up with.
