Dave, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! Insurance or not, it's just a sickening feeling to be/feel violated like that.

With todays technology you would think a GPS tracking chip/device of some sort would be (reasonably) available. Of course hidden and/or undetectable.

FWIW, If even just as a deterrent, my brother works for a printing company and it sparked an idea of having him print some stickers with the following type of notice:

ATTENTION: GPS TRACKING DEVICE ATTACHED
or
THIS VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH A GPS TRACKING DEVICE - YOU BETTER HOPE LAW ENFORCEMENT TRACKS YOU DOWN BEFORE I DO!

Well, something along those lines.

If it prevents just ONE theft, it would be worth the low cost of a sticker.

Yep! Summer is when all the BS happens around my place too!

Been scarfing up a bunch of .300 Win Mag's for target shooting. Can't find .223's any place locally, and if you could, they would be more expensive.

.44 mag's, 60 rounds for 140+ bucks. Not the plinking stuff tho, cause ya can't find it!

Ammo is scarce around here, but you can usually find the magnum stuff for rifles.

About a year and a half ago I was having problems with a neighbor kid breaking into my back shop stealing beer...I have reported it several times and the cops did nothing...

Finally a train horn came in at work that had a 12 volt switch on it...Plumbed it up on the fridge..Not 10 minutes after my wife took this video he was in there...Ended up getting pictures on the trail cam a our local coroner saw him running from my garage...

They had like 7 judgement against him at the county court house..He ended up get 3 years...Kinda glad I didn't see where he went after I saw him run out the door...I was a little more than MAD!!!

It will probably start and run for a short period of time, until the fuel in the line is consumed. You could also add a hidden switch in the transmission interlock switch line. But, depending how they hot wire to start the tractor, it could potentially still be started.

I'd need to see a wiring diagram of your 4-wheeler. What brand and model is it? I may be able to download a wiring diagram.


Not the 4 wheeler so much, Ken. Frankly, I'd be happy if it got stolen so I could buy a better one! I'm thinking about my tractor. Even though I keep all my vehicles in a locked building, I know a determined thief would make it in if he wanted. The tractor is most important thing to me to have disabled because if it's disabled, the other stuff isn't coming out of the building due to the space the tractor occupies.

Todd -- have you thought about asking one of your clients how best to steal equipment like this? From that, we probably could come up with a number of ways to circumvent their escapades.

Awesome. He got sentenced to 3 years but how many did he actually serve? You know how that is.

On a funny note when I was a kid there was a guy who was really got at imitating sounds and even had a record. Can't remember his name.One of his favorite things was to imitate an approaching train complete with the whistle from a speaker mounted on his car -- out in the country where there were not tracks or trains. Said it was amazing how many lights went on in the surrounding houses with people trying to figure where the train was.

The horn and cameras are probably a good idea.

About a year ago, near where I grew up, a fellow and his wife had been having their resort tavern burglarized regularly. They started staying in an apartment above the tavern, and put in some silent alarms. As the alarm went off one night, the owner went partway down the stairwell to see two individuals taking out cases of liquor. It was dark, and he ending up shooting and killing his nephew, and seriously wounding a neighbor boy. It was a very tragic case that tore the family and community apart.

There are no good answers.

It's a brilliant idea, Ken, but I don't represent guilty people so I'm sure none of them could help. grin

When I was growing up, Dad had an electric cut-out installed on his cars. It would allow the car to be started, and run for about 30 seconds, then it killed the ignition. Slow blow fuse or something like that. I don't know how it'd work with todays computerized vehicles tho.

That train horn was a great idea!!!

One of my neighbors has a game camera that transmits images to his PC 70 miles away. I'm going to look into that.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

You can pick up cheap ones at truck chrome shops for just over $100 bucks... Real ones will run you quite abit more, like in the $500+ range used..

For what it's worth, prison sentences (not to be confused with jail sentences) typically afford day for day credit while incarcerated. That means you can cut the length of the sentence in half to get the actual time that would be served provided the person didn't lose any good time due to violations while inside.

As well, if the sentence is indeterminate, meaning a term of 1 to 3 years (or whatever), they must serve at least 1 before being eligible for parole, but could serve as much as the full 3 if they lost good time credit.

In the case you're talking about, serving 1.5 years pretty much means he did his entire sentence and there will not likely be any parole period upon his release.

When I replace the bikes, and I will replace them, I'm not going to mess with electrical devices. I'm going to chain them together. And, they will have to steal my cutting torch to steal them.

Well, maybe I had better think of something else.

Just take your cutting torch home and store it there instead of at your farm! You'll have 'em licked that way!

.

Yeah. Probably won't work. Years ago I bought a set of 36-inch "bolt" cutters. It is amazing how many times I've put them to good use in the last 30 years.

I got them from one of the liquidation places, so they were pretty inexpensive. I've cut half-inch chain with them. I regularly use them to cut half-inch rebar and large bolts -- but those things are are a lot softer than chain.
