Intruded upon.

This morning when I went out to the truck I discovered that someone had ransacked it. The center consol was opened and everything on it was spread all over the seat, different compartments were open stuff was strewn about. Whoever did it didnít take anything, at least nothing I noticed. They left money, CDs, sunglasses, etc. I donít generally leave a lot of items of value in my vehicles. They did however search the ashtray.

To be honest it is almost like they where looking for something specific. They tossed the compartments, but didnít take anything and looked into compartments that normally you donít store stuff inÖ like the ashtray next to the coin compartment. Places that are just big enough to say hold a cell phone.

Not that I have any proof. And I may be over thinking this, but allegedly the Ex told Boopie that if I don't return the phone by this Friday he's going to take me to court. Which would be a bad idea for him. At least I know it wasnít Boopie, he couldnít get out of the house in the middle of the night with out setting off the alarm.

My guess would be that it was somebody looking specifically for cash.

Seriously, does he know how many firearms you own?

Get a 12 volt batter and connect it to the frame of your truck with the positive cable. Get a nice sheet of sheet metal and connect the negative cable to it, and set the sheet metal so it lays the width of the truck and protrudes via the Drivers and passenger doors.

That will seriously deter anyone who wants to open your truck doors :)

Shadoglare: Then why did they leave the cash?

Oddy: Nope, no idea.

Bloodspite: Yes, it would deter, but it also might end up in jail for manslaughter. :)

Lift some fingerprints so if it does end up in court you can mention that someone with his fingerprints ransacked your truck.

Or call the cops, I would.

I'm with QW. Get some evidence. Call the cops. At least get a report on the record.

He really does NOT want to take you to court. Heh. His loss.

I hope you hid that cell phone GOOD.

You want I can come camp out in the bed of your truck and wait for the idiots to come back. Like a little surprise.

From what I've heard, I can take him and that way YOU won't get in trouble.

It ain't "art" but it'd be entertaining none the less.....

He won't take you to court... but I wish there was some way to hook up a "flash" for if he tries to do it again. You know, set it up so if someone opens the door to the truck - a camera flash goes off and scares the bejesus out of him...
