Keep an eye on your driveways friends, pay attention to your gas gauges. If you catch one of these losers, I say tie 'em up and store them for a week or 2 in a cold dark room...

Unfortunately this is not new. It's been happening for over a decade. Google it. The only thing new is that the local crack heads finally figured out the plastic gas tanks and a cordless drill make it easy.
They like big trucks with ground clearance. Little risk if you drive a car with 5 inches of ground clearance.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Yeah I know this is nothing new, but is just starting to become popular in Penticton now with our local deadbeats. Be a damn shame if they got stuck under one of those vehicles they're putting holes in.

Or somebody threw a lit match under.

Until the fire investigation found the match end and you find yourself doing 10yrs for 2nd deg murder.
There is no winning scenario for victims of crime in our system. Even breaking his protruding knee's from beneath your vehicle with a baseball bat will have you doing more time than the crackhead will get for theft under 5K.

Gee officer I was just tossing the match after lighting my smoke. I didn't see that guy hiding under my car stealing my gas.
How was I to know? :admin:

Just sayin...I would never do that but I like the idea of accidentally stepping (tripping) on his knees.

I can see the written police report now.

I backed up and my truck made a really loud noise, so I moved ahead and it made a different noise. I got out and looked all around my truck, I didn't see anything, so I backed up and there was that noise again but not as loud this time so I pulled ahead and heard a different noise again. So I moved back and forth a bunch more times until the noise stopped.
Then I ran out of gas and went back inside. It wasn't until the the next day when the tow truck came and picked up the truck before I saw a big ball of old dirty clothes.

Yep, happening in OK Falls, and Oliver, not just gas, they got my equipment trailer which is worth more than $5000.00.
They been stealing diesel from my employer's equipment, I have a feeling the police know who it is but not much seems to be done about it.
They just let out a group of them from the prison in Oliver, and they back at it again.
Doesn't look good for the town's trying to attract business or people to the area. Something has to happen to these Meth/Crack heads.

Cr125 .. You say they they just let a group of them from the prison in Oliver and they are back at again. First off who is they?
Secondly .. Who is them? Thirdly .. They are back at what again? Fourthly ... You know this to be true how? Also .. How do you know they are meth/crack heads? If you can honestly answer all these questions I''m sure the RCMP would like to have a chat with you.

And there is the rub. Unless there is clear evidence, such as a video that clearly identifies the culprit, or a clear finger print.....which will never be found cuz the known crack head culprits are smart enuff to wear a ball cap and bandana for the camera and wear some cheap gloves. These losers know that the RCMP will just attend, say there is little they can do given the evidence available, and give you a business card with a police file number to provide to your insurance company.
Investigative police work detracts from time spent from three officers setting up speed traps or seatbelt stings for revenues. The rest of us victims of crime just pay our insurance deductibles and face even higher insurance rates for making a claim.

The "thieves" will take my trailer, steal more quads, snowmobiles then grind off the serial #, then re-register it as an "as Built".
The amount of work they go to stealing items is amazing, its too bad they don't use those smarts on a honest job. We are constantly looking for smart hardworking guys, if only we could trust them.
