heads ups....
« on: August 04, 2008, 09:53:54 PM »
Hey everyone,

Just a small reminder to keep all valuables hidden in your car or truck.  Today 8-4-08 my truck along with 2 other cars where either broken into or attempted to be broken into at Flatwoods at the entry station.  They attempted to pop my lock on my new truck.  Luckily they didnít into it.   The other 2 cars had windows knocked out.  I am not sure if anything was taken.   From what the cop told me the ranger saw what happened and went after the guys.  This took place between 5-6pm. The cop said the guys had gone into the woods.  On the drive home on Morris Bridge road I saw 3 or 4 cop cars near the bypass canal near the hole in the fence.  Just thought I would pass along the info.  i am assuming they where lookin for wallets and cash.  sorry if i have posted in the wrong area.
Thanks

I was parked at the hole in the fence. Nothing was touched over there, but there were cops everywhere. They were wildercountry mentioned and inside the entrance of Trout Creek and there was a Helicopter searching the area.

I suspect that as soon as the infared camera was useful, they found him.....Along with a half a million pigs, deer......etc.....

this just gave me an idea....a fake expensive looking cell phone that is really nothing more than a GPS transponder..so when idiots do this..the cops can activate it like a lo-jack and drive right up to the jerks..

DIBS!

When you ride so far out that you hear no traffic, no people...nothing..

Most cell phones have a gps function built in to them. You can manually turn that feature on.

You tried to buy one of those flamethrowers that mounts under your car didn't you? lol ;)
Most phones do have a GPS system..but police don't have direct access to it...by the time, they get through the red tape, the phone's sim card, and battery have been removed..negating the GPS.

I need to call the lo-jack people and talk bidness. lol

Oh and DON'T STEAL FROM PARAGONMAN! LOL

Given the fact that there are some crosscountry runners who stash their keys under tires of their vehicles...I am not suprised that *s like this frequent flatwoods looking for an easy score.

I always carry all of my valuables, you never know when you might have to call  911 and your wife from the trailside, and need you insurance card, and credit card for a copay.. ;) ;)

just to update things.

the person who they caught has been releaed from jail.  he was release on 9-11-08 @ 9:05am.  he spent 37 days in custody.    he got mostly probation and 50 hrs of COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS. from reading the court records it was a plea deal. 

i just wish he would have gotten more time.  this was his 4th time being arrested and he is only 19 years old.

if hear anythings else i will post it along.

thanks

Not sure if it is related or not but when I met my sons at Trout Creek this afternoon, there was a sheriff at the main parking lot and another in the Hole in Fence parking lot.  That was around 2:00 P.M. this afternoon.
