got to work right before 7am, got a call from a jobsite that a 16' tandem axle flatbed trailer we were using as a fuel / grease traielr was gone.

500g diesel tank.. just filled tuesday... duel tank air comp with a honda engine.. 35# grease keg with air operated grease pump and hose reel.. ( amalie ) and an air hose real, plus a aluminum tool box of maintenance items like filters and service tools.

someone must have had to work hard to steal it.. we left it on an 'island' where we park equipment with berms around it and areas that would be difficult to pull thru to get at it...

I hate theives....

spent the morning driving the local area, a few main roads.. some known.. un.. low rent areas.. called a few pawn shops, hit a few small jobsites in the area.. etc.

spoke with the law earlier.. gave a description.. answered some questions.. etc..

The (explecitive deleted) stole the air conditioner from a local Little League. Also they hit a church for their brand new AC units. They should be flailed to death. Flailing is too good for them! I don't know what should be done with them, but something should!

Several tag trailers and goosneck trailers around here disappeared only to be found for sale at a rural salvage yard. Were being sold as non-titled trailers. The authorities forced the salvage yard to return the trailers to the owners with their proof being the titles. Of course the salvage yard has no record of who brings in anthing....yeah right, like he isn't going to remember a guy bringing in perfectly good trailers as salvage !!! And of course, you never get the whole story either.
