They are stealing trucks again off alligator alley...

Post by MYDIXIEWRECKED » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:51 pm

I figured I'd give everyone who runs down south a heads up. We had 4 trucks broken into at the 35mm boat ramp (South West ramp) on alligator alley. They attempted to steal all of them, but i have shown everyone how to disable them...(thank god). They spun the locks out of two doors, beat a screwdriver into one ignition and cut a bunch of wires under the dash on the other. They broke my back power slider out of my F250 king ranch and beat a srewdriver into my ignition. I think it's time for a stake out.... you guys seen bait car? Just imagine bait truck cracker style! I had a guy who came by my camp later saturday night saying he seen a white rice burner (Honda/Acura) with two early 20's spanish kids hanging around the ramp... They broke into my two buddies trucks Saturday between 11am and 6pm. They broke into mine Sunday between 2pm and 6 pm... When i got back to the ramp Sunday morning and left for materials, there was a white 4 door dodge with the drivers door busted out... I'm thinking about park my truck, drive my boat out and around back to the canal a mile or so down, jump in a bass boat with a buddy and sneak back to the ramp... when they get caught it wont be good.

Ohhhh....I could get creative with them. You need to catch them! Don't count on LEOs to do it.

That would not be a very convinient place to get caught stealing someones personal belongings....I have heard tell of some young folks getting caught stealing crab traps off the hill, and some how all there fingers got smashed with a claw hammer....There are some old timers down there that don't play that crap....Happy hunting.....

WTF. You have to be kidding me. This sucks man. I hope something is done. I know if something ever happens to my truck and I witness it they will be looking right into a black hole.

In the movies they would have the bad luck of flat tires, accidentally electrocuted themself w/ a stun gun trying to break into one of the vehicles, woke up duct taped (for their safety of course) and on a ride to find help via airboat. I don't know??? Just sayin......

Hahaha! Why am i so damned good at putting my foot in my mouth :mrgreen:
I'm sure if you are an leo you can be quite creative also.
A long boat ride sounds like the best idea to me. That way they at least have a "chance" ;-)

Not to butt in on you guys thread, but has anyone ever thought of putting an inline toggle switch in your glove compartment? As in, from the red wire to the toggle to the ignition? Lock the glove box and it could buy you a little time if you really want to catch the scum. Just a thought.

I returned to the ramp about 4:30pm to 5:pm Sunday. Our group had 3 trucks. No problems here. Didn't see any problems either. Must have happened after we left. It was my first trip out of that ramp. I assume it was the 35mm ramp since it takes you south towards Bergerons camp. Correct me if I'm wrong. I just found out we were at the 41mile ramp if that sounds right.
