When he chased on foot, they took off without headlights till they were a block away. Sounds a little suspicious to me :sick: :mad:



He should have stood back and called the cops. Just observed from a distance and let the Police handle it . Good thing they ran, as they had him outnumberd.

Well, my wife had the state police here tonight. Someone was in our car, glove box and center console open, and the door was not totally closed, not broken into, NO DAMAGE DONE, unless I CATCH EM :mad: . Neighbors on the streets around me had their cars viloated. Some had tools stolen from their garage. Nothing missing that we know of. I don't keep a garage door opener in the car, but I do keep some LEAD in the house, I may sit outside in the dark some nights with the LEAD, and a piece of HICKORY.

I had to laugh a little while thinking, if the person that was in my car was in the back, their were some paper targets in there from the gun club a couple weeks ago, the the holes were pritty close , within a inch of the 10 ring at 100 yards. Wonder if that made some brown marks in their white wash. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Could have been what kept them out of your house. :idea:

Yeah I got into a habit many years ago of locking my vehicle no matter how rural the area. As a teenager I saw how easily people stole things out of cars. Since then, my doors are locked whenever I exit. As far as the house goes, I've never slept in any house with unlocked doors. Sucks we have to be that way, but society is completely *censored* today.
