Random Acts of Vandalism

On March 13th we awoke to discover that one of the (very heavy) metal drawers from a tool box we were temporarily storing in the bed of our pick up truck had been hurled from the truck. It struck and damaged the roll-off container truck we use for our business. We speculate that the culprits were trying to steal the tool box until they realized just how heavy it was and just threw the drawer in frustration. Perhaps their intention was exactly what they accomplished - hard telling.

This morning we discovered that somebody siphoned gas from our son's pick up truck by cutting a hose that attaches to a canister of acetylene, which we needed for a job today. Our gas can was taken as well. We had to wait 2-1/2 hours for a deputy to come and take the report before we could even get the hose replaced, thus putting the kibosh on today's work.

Incident reports to follow as soon as we get them.
