    This is B.S. you don't know who took your property and yet you label and libel a group that might of had nothing to do with the theft why not say junkies, white trash, trailer park residents, the homeless, etc.?

    Really? That was an extremely worthless and unhelpful post. Besides the op is correct, meth heads do have a habit of stealing sh!t to feed their addiction regardless of who they're hurting.
    Hope you can recover your saws Ratman!

    Nothing was found except my Miller Tig welder first time. Second time they stole more stuff and Miller tig again. Now I have installed camera system with internet alerts and a Alarm system. They got My MS211 and my One owner Pro Mac 1000 that I had since I was kid.

    Yes, but the unfortunate reality is the Criminals have MORE RIGHTS than the Victims any more, and if you did that, the POS wouldn't have to STEAL from you, but would get your Home and damn near everything in it LEGALLY, and YOU would likely end up paying HIS legal fees.:confused::(

    Massively SUCKS, but that is the way it turns out all too often :dumb2:

    Not so sure on that one. If I was working on my traps and left them out in the middle of the garage, loaded, where does it say I have to put them in a safe place? And why was he in my garage in the first place? There's a hunting/trapping season for raccoon where I live but what if I set traps for them because they are a nuisance, I'm not a poacher. One vermin or the other, what's the difference?

    You are correct many trespassers and thieves have sued owners and won in court....not right but it happens.

    Yeah, I know, and don't need to be reminded :(

    The area known as "Rockwood" between Portland and Gresham is getting really bad. In about 2008, I had my home Burglarized, the SOB's used my own wheelbarrow to remove a 14 gun safe from the house while I was on vacation :mad:, it was a plate and cast safe, not just a sheet metal locker, then a couple years later, I had the entire ARB front bumper and Warn winch stolen off my Jeep Cherokee in the driveway one night :****you:, It was probably a Good thing that I DIDN'T catch them in the act, I take a rather dim view of such actions, and I probably would have been the one in a cell, at least IF they found the bodies;):surprised3::).

    Like Bocephus sings "I have a Rifle, a Shotgun, and a four wheel drive" I also have a SHOVEL, and know places up in the mountains that the Bears and Squirrels rarely go ;), it would be a VERY SHALLOW, shallow grave :yes:

    Sorry to hear of the thefts. I know exactly how you feel. I've been lucky or fortunate so far, how ever you want to look at it. Only once have I had a vehicle of mine broken in to. That was way back in 1978 or so.

    I had a 1974 Ford F-250 4x4. It had the vent windows and a guy used a slim jim to manipulate the lock and open the window. Long story made short, my g/f at the time, heard a noise outside and told me. I race downstairs only to miss him by about 10 seconds or so. He disappeared into the night.

    Probably a good thing though. If I had caught him, it wouldn't have been pretty. Luckily for me, he didn't damage my truck getting into it or take anything.

    Last Nov some dirt bags stole my car as well several others in the area. Couple weeks ago I was informed( via the grape vine) that at least one of them developed a terminal case of lead poisoning which of course has removed him from the gene pool. Not a the hands of LEO. My car was recovered although completely trashed ( left at scene of accident). pia.

    Thieves suck! I would put up motion lights, and camera's that alert your smart phone. In reality, your belongings may never be found, and that sucks! Just be prepared next time. I pitty the thief that tries that crap at my home, chances are, they will not be leaving under their own power. I have my property is protected by Smith&Wesson sign in plain sight, so if they try...they willingly put their life on the line.

    I'm not saying that it is RIGHT, but LEGALLY, that sign could cause you more problems than it helps you avoid.

    Heaven Forbid that you do actually shoot someone on your property ( a Risk they Willingly took, in MY OPINION) the Family of the " Poor Misunderstood Boy , who would NEVER hurt anyone" ( read, Worthless Piece of Shitt) could use that sign as Evidence that you were Looking to Shoot someone, just like a CCW Holder Never wants to make a comment like "Go Ahead, Make my Day" in the unfortunate event that they actually have to draw/use their weapons

    Things like that are a Plaintiff's Lawyer's Dream come True :(

    Doug :cheers:
