This may be more of a PBB thread, but I'm more loyal here, so I thought I would ping you all first. Here's the scoop:
I live in the city on a normal city block, probably 1/4 acre corner lot. I own my home, not renting. I've had several things stolen since I moved in about 4 years ago. Utility trailer out of side yard, Air compressor out of small storage building (shed #1), fishing rods out of back of truck parked on street, for sale sign out of front yard. Think that is about it.
The most recent event happened Tuesday. One of my friend's keeps his 4wheeler at my house. It stays parked on the concrete walkway around the pool. But I come home and it is pushed over to gate #1 with the grille guard sticking through the gate. Apparently someone(s) tried to steal it but it wouldn't fit through the gate.
The neighbors to the left (when looking at the diagram) are retired and home most all day everyday. They said they walked out to get the newspaper around 10AM and all was normal. Come back out around 11:30 and the 4wheeler was as described. They called the police, and they came out and assessed the situation. Tried to move the 4wheeler back, but couldn't get it to budge.
I also discovered that they had backed the bulbs out of the motion light that I have on the front of Shed #1. This is the 2nd time they've done that.
So, any suggestions? Right now I'm looking at borrowing a game camera to try to get someone in the act.
No enemies or anything like that. I'm two blocks from a mall, so I think that might be a contributing factor.
