    Well, the other day, we were on our way to have dinner with my aunt and cousin for their birthdays, and my grandparent's security alarm went off. :eek:

    We were already 30 miles away from the house when it happened, so we were freaking out a bit.

    The alarm service had already called the Sheriff, but we were still worried, so we called the neighbor so he could watch out for any cars that were leaving the house. (They would HAVE to go by his property to leave).

    When we finally made it to the house, there was a crowd out front. Not only was one of the Sheriff's deputys there, but also the neighbor, his son, and his son's wife. All of them had brought their guns. :D

    Luckily, it ended up being a false alarm. One of the sensors had fallen off of the window.

    It's good to know that their neighbors wouldn't hesitate to help. It's also good to know that the deputy lives close by, and somehow made it there in 2-3 minutes.

    you have much better neighbors than I do. Last September when I was out of town working for 2 weeks my Jeep was broken into - stereo/cd player/amp, recovery bag, cb, gps and the winch was removed from the front bumper. Only 2 ways to get the winch off - cut it off or remove the bumper and undo the bolts.

    Keep in mind the Jeep was parked under a lamp post, 10' from the neighbors front door ..... nobody heard/saw nothing :rolleyes:

    Get some 3m indoor outdoor double sided tape its the red and grey one. Also after putting it on the window and all the others get clear silicone and go around the sensor and mag it will help with the expansion with weather change

    They have another neighbor who's house you have to go within 30 feet of to get to their house (also armed), they have a couple who built a house directly in front of their house (they are big into target shooting with handguns), and they have another couple who are also big into guns that built a house a hundred yards or so behind the first couple's house. Yep, it's always nice to know that you're surrounded by good people with big guns. :D

    Thanks for the tips, I think my grandfather already fixed that problem, but if he hasn't, I'll pass on your advice.

    LMAO!

    That's crazy! Did they ever find out who did it?

    of course not ... Officers response was that they were having a theft increase due to some less than savory students attending the college in town :rolleyes:

    A cb is just like anything else of value, they can sell it for quick cash. They are also easier to steal because most people use the trucker mount which only uses two thumb screws to hold the radio, unscrew the screws, yank the power cord and unscrew the antennae coax and go.

    Some of those cb radio are also very expensive. I work with a couple drivers that paid a little over 600 for thier radios.

    I can almost garuantee it. They were the same neighbors had been having problems with regarding them abusing their dog. I guess they didn't like getting turned into to the Police.

    No matter, they were run out about a month later by thier landlord spur of the moment on a Sunday. He showed up and gave them till dusk to be gone. It's been a lot quieter around here ever since :)

    As for the stolen gear, I'm a big beleiver in karma ... one day while while winching themselves out of a ditch maybe the winch will fail and the vehicle will crush em' :cool:
