    Defend your house. They could be lurking by waiting to come in to warm up and clean up.

    I hate thieves. I have an almost middle eastern philosophy regarding thieves. Hope this hurt. Bad.

    Was there anything on the floor that could have been used to hold the gas peddle down?

    Haha that's crazy. Did you take notice if the keys were in it?

    I'm glad they did hurt anyone else or damage too much. Hopefully they are caught.

    Yeah u def don't want your prints on or in it! Just curious if they punched the ignition or swiped the keys from the owner. No windows were smashed, so left unlocked or the key was used. 2:30am is prime time for DUI crashes...:spy:

    If that an Explorer or Expedition? If it's an Expedition, it should have a chipped key to make theft quite a bit more difficult.
    I had an '07 Expedition as my take home work vehicle. No way (for me) to start it without the key with the chip in it.

    An ideally positioned trail cam or two is worth the money. Just because hunting season is over doesn't mean the trail cams go away. Plus you might catch Santa. (clue: dress up as Santa and trigger cam. Renting a reindeer for a couple of hours could make it totally perfect.)

    Well, they got me again. Exactly two weeks to the day someone drove through my front yard and left tire marks all over again, I had a camera out but they were either lucky or they drove buy during the day and knew where it was because the stayed away from it. I called the police again and made a report and the cop agreed with me that its not just a random incident that I am being targeted for some reason. So im going to try something a little more pro active.
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I painted them black and I will put them out in the front yard every night after dark and pick them in the morning so they dont see them in the yard if they drive buy during the day

    People suck. Having flat tires sucks even more. Happy hunting!
