Default Carjacking in small town TX

Just installed a new Ring security system which sends you updates of any happenings in your neighborhood from folks that also have Ring systems, anywho at 539 this morning a fellow got to donate his truck to a thug that obviously needed it more.

Some scenarios really need to end different...

Right? That scumbag was not just happening by at 0530 hrs. He had to be given information about when your neighbor leaves for work. One of your neighbors is complicit in this. I have never trusted myself with a handgun, but my first stop after seeing that on my Ring would be to the local shop for some protection. My best wishes to you and your family for their safe protection from your scumbag neighbors.

Or someone from where he works might be the guilty culprit...

While I don't have anything specific instances to relate - wife and I have both become very conscious of what we disclose and around anyone. Maybe not in the THT humble brag SOP but there is just no point in anyone knowing your daily routine or how many/what kind of X you have or anything. Sad times

I'm sure that the poor young feller just misplaced his own car keys while getting dressed and ready for work so he just wanted to borrow the guys truck. Sheesh...y'all are way to judgmental.....more to come for sure.

Albeit a maybe...but that is going down the worm hole of conspiracy shit...
Shitbags target a neighborhood...follow tendencies on the least combative rich bounty and strike...takes 5-7 days...move 1-2 miles in a pattern and return until the area gets to hot...then next county or city

Probably 1/3 of Houston and the surrounding area is up at that hour leaving or work or getting home from work. I wouldn't be so quick to blame a neighbor.

I don't know how many people would carjack me, a armed 6'2 290 lb male driving a F 350 crew cab long bed 4 x 4 but think they would have to be pretty desperate.But I worry about my wife In her Mini Cooper. Thankfully we live in a safe rural town.

Neighbor across the street was robbed of all their flat-screen TVs. (Six?)

I had left to another state the day before, but I heard a car was parked at my curb the morning that it happened. It was an inside job albeit maybe indirectly.

The thieves struck at 8am on a Sunday morning and, in broad daylight, broke in the backdoor and grabbed every flat-screen in the house.

A daughter of the household may have bragged on Facebook about having a a big TV in every room and shared the family travel plans for the weekend. The thieves had some inside information, since the vehicles in the driveway did not leave the impression that the house was unoccupied. (A Cadillac and some other nice vehicles in the drive.)

That may have been why they camped out at my curb for a while. Waiting to see them leave or making sure nobody was home.

Neighbor across the street from the house saw the thugs break-in the back door and start loading up the TVs. She was "baby-sitting/guardian" her grandchild and was too scared to call the police. (I share the hand-palm)

She did get the license plate of vehicle and that did lead to the grandpa of the thieves, but not sure what progressed beyond that.

So... this was a case of a daughter sharing information at a party or on the internet. She unknowingly setup her family for a big theft and the thieves hit the house in broad daylight.

So yeah, be careful with what you share.

I owned a vacation rental on the beach in Daytona for 10 years. It was basically never locked there were people coming and going all the time. There were six HD TVs in the house along with many other things. Never had a problem ever. Who wants to steal a little cheap flat screen TV's these days that are basically worthless.
