I came home late one evening after a weekend of riding. Had mine and the wife's quads on the back of a flat trailer. I was too tired to put them up so I just parked in front of the house. Got woke up later by a noise. Two kids were trying to pull the quads off the trailer. Took the .45 out and introduced myself. They scattered. Pretty darn fast too.
Closer look showed they broke into the truck to steal it all. Couldn't get it started.
Tried to take the trailer off, lock on the release so they couldn't get that. Figured they'd just unstrap them and pull them off. They didn't see the cable lock that had them tied together and to the trailer.
They looked to be in their late teens. Never saw them around before. Just driving around to see what they could steal. I figure a professional thief would have figured out how to start the truck.
As the police officer said later, they'll probably never come back by this house again. Good thing too. I'd have added two or three bullets to the cost of the security system.
