    Check building sites around town. Several years ago my in law’s truck was stolen. Was found at a construction site. Guy that stole it was a day laborer. Police told him at that time a lot of stolen trucks and vans show up at worksites. They find a lot of stolen tools also. GOOD LUCK! It stinks to have your vehicle stolen!! I’ve been a victim of car theft twice. I feel your pain! I’ll keep my eye’s open.

      It sounds like that was someone who was stealing because they were in need. The people who have been stealing these newer pickups are professionals, completely different. If the vehicle is found it most likely will have parts taken off of it, and if it isn’t it would have been scrapped.

    In December my F-250 was stolen twice in 2 weeks!!  Busted out locks and ignition both times. Once found full of stolen construction tools and drug paraphernalia. I just put in an alarm and tracker and now box it in with two other vehicles!! I wonder if other neighborhoods are having the same issue with the Fords, or is this more a westside thing?!

    My car was stolen 2 times broken into 4 times in the same year. Last year. We lived of 47th and Dakota. I had 3 other roommates. All of us had are cars broken into multiple times last year. One roommate got up to go to work in the morning and some one was sleeping inside his car. They got into a fight because the guy said he owned the car and wouldn’t get out.  

Sorry, comment time is over.
