Some #$%hole broke into my garage and stole all my tools this morning, about $400 worth. Kinda lowers one's faith in humanity a little. Just wish the rottie/mastiff was in the yard, instead of inside.

Thanks, Hawker. The only consolation is there is a 300 pce set on sale for $80 from Can Tire, with SnapOn type toolchest. It's just tools, but i feel violated. They could have taken WAY more stuff (timing light, battery charger, manometers).

Mag:

When we lived off of Davie in 84, we never got burglarized until the "Shame The Johns" crowd chased all the hookers off to Mt. Pleasant. As soon as they left, "our watchdogs" were gone, and Pendrell and Thurlow became "B & E Central".

The drugs gang will steal anything that they can flip for a quick buck...tools are pretty attractive.

Sorry to hear that mag. I know how that feels, makes a person see red. I had my car broken into some years ago when the family and I were visiting a zoo in San Francisco. They cleaned us out, took our luggage, still and Super 8 camera, the only thing left was the .357 clipped up under the driver's seat. Like you, our insurance didn't come close to paying for what we lost.

No, the lowest form of life are vandals. A thief at least has a reason for what he does but a vandal is just a mentally defective waste of oxygen.
