Break-Ins

Postby RumRiver » Thu Oct 15, 2015 10:45 am

My wife and I live on the old family dairy farm in Minnesota. Over the last couple of years outbuildings are burglarized regularly.

The first big hit they took an 8x20 foot trailer - loaded it up with various items and drove off with the whole works, about $10,000 total. These two idiots they eventually caught, they pawned some of the stuff using their real name. One of them got 10 years probation, the other plead guilty and got 90 days in jail - but with time served from some other sentence he was serving he got out pretty much the same day he entered the guilty plea.

The word gets out in the meth-cooking, steal-anything-not-nailed-down-we-love-taking-stuff-community, and we get hit more often. We install new locks/cameras/etc. They end up just peeling back the metal walls and take whatever's handy (including the cameras).

A cabin we own in the northern part of the state was hit too. They found it necessary to take things like our American flag, the cabin's journal ("we got to the cabin late last night, it was raining"), the joke fire alarm (a container of Jiffy-Pop popcorn), the fly-swatter, and of course the old barbecue grill with the broken legs.

Good grief you clowns, put that much effort into a real job and buy your own broken barbecue grill.....

you can install Wi-Fi cameras that relays the "videos" on hour home PC.

Add warning stickers on your buildings.

And, report every attempt to break-in.

Also put a few NRA stickers on your windows!

You're right Snowy, have done all but #4.

The wi-fi cameras were black-infrared. Cops said they detect them at night by using night vision when still out of range (supposedly black-infrared then stands out like neon). We could see they climbed the back side of the tree, and (I'm guessing) removed the aerial first, after which they took all the cameras too.

At least they're conscientious about their work, always a complete job.........geeez.

They're baaack.....

It appears they have tired of our buildings, instead they hit my (now vacant) parent's place across the road. Months ago my siblings and I emptied the buildings there of the junkiest junk, plus anything we wanted to keep ourselves.

Nothing like walking through the home you grew up in and see the few remaining odds and ends of crap scattered all over as human debris sort through the detritus from the previous waves of looters.

Heh, as I was typing this I got a phone call from the investigator.
Turns out the guy who JUST pleaded guilty and was released with time served earlier this month.......has already been picked up for a parole violation.

Back into the crowbar hotel...........what a moron.

Just when you figure it couldn't get more stupid............

The sheriff's department investigator calls me to check and see if a small fishing boat he found was one of the items stolen from us.

He texted a pic and I said no, that's not ours. When I asked why he thought it might be ours, he related how he was investigating a burglary that happened to the guy who confessed to burglarizing OUR stuff! The guy was upset about how wrong it all was.

When the investigator pointed out the hypocrisy of a convicted thief bitching about getting burglarized, the thief actually used the phrase "that was different".

Reminds me of many years ago during a New York city power outage and the news was covering all the looting. A twenty-something year old young lady complained about how she was looting a big box of shoes that was too big for her to carry. She asked a couple of guys to help, but they picked it up and ran off with it. "They shouldn't have done that.", she said, "that's just wrong".

I guess I'll never understand............

easy to understand...

they have no respect to other's belongings.
but, they expect to get respect from others.

I call this egocentrism.

I'm now treating this as a science experiment.

The last visit the scum-sucking-trash paid was to unbolt the aluminum cylinder heads from some old snowmobiles. I'm assuming to recycle in order to afford the latest batch of chemicals to cook the next batch of crystal meth.

Question: How far are they willing to go to make the $20-$30 they realize from each trip?

I have used 6" lagbolts and screwed all the sliding doors closed from the outside. They take a 30pt torx bit, which I don't believe is on your standard leatherman tool. It might slow them down for the first visit, we'll see how long it takes.

So far it seems like a 30pt torx is the secret weapon, here we were doing silly stuff like cameras and heavy chains.

It's only been a month, maybe they haven't yet scored the right size torx from their other burglaries.

Okay, it's been awhile - but it seems like the 30pt torx is indeed a secret weapon.

In an amusing update:
The confessed burglar that had originally gotten off with ten years probation by rolling over on his partner in crime - has now been picked up on felony drug charges (surprise) and has a good chance of serving a few years of actual jail time for violating the terms of his probation.

Gee, what a shame.............
