Default An interesting Thanksgiving

My wife, sonand I spent Thanksgiving at her parents house in Selbyville DE, along with my brother in law, sister in law and their 2 kids.Thursday afternoon my BIL moved my FIL's little S10 (that I sold to him last year) to make room for his Tahoe and the trailer w/ dirtbikes. Moved the S10 into the driveway next to my truck. We go about our Thanksgiving day.

Friday morning about 6:45 the phone rings once and I wake up. I'm sitting in bed and I hear my FIL walk by in the hallway saying "Nope, it can be mine because my truck is in the driveway." I get up and go outside where he is and noticed his truck is gone. He gets off the phone and I ask him "Where the hell's your truck Manny?!"

He says "That was the state police. They said it was involved in an accident in Delmar!"

Some dueche bag stole it and rear ended a Jeep Cherokee, that was doing 60 mph! The thief was doing about 80-90 mph. We're very thankful that the other guy was not hurt!!

The 6' black scumbag took off on foot but left a stolen cell phone in the truck and the cops were very close to getting him last night.

Did I mention the part about my BIL leaving the keys in the S10??? [img]../images/emoticons/surprise.gif[/img]

Talked to my FIL lastnight and the cops got the bastard! Turns out he was wanted for several other offenses including kidnapping, armed robbery and assault.

+1 for Delaware's finest, and glad the guy in the Jeep wasn't hurt, but what is your BIL's insurance company going to say about the keys being left in the vehicle?

Dirt bags must come out in force for the holiday, many car breakins in my development wed night. They took change from the cupholder but left power tools on the seat, looked at company gas card, but didn't take it. MartyD

Well, it was my FIL's truck. BIL left the keys in it. Technically. FIL is still "responsible" for making sure his vehicle is secure, right? I don't know the law well enough to comment on what could or couldn't happen.

We evacuated for Hurricane Gustave in sept. to stay with relatives in Atlanta. The first night we were there (nice neighborhood- Buckhead, I think), some shitheads got into me and my buddies truck and stole change. My buddy had all of his mechanics tools in the truck, probably 10,000 bucks worth. They took the change. ;?

What are they going to do w/ tools?............................................ ..........................work?[img]../images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

I doubt there's much value in tools on the "hot" market.

I guess you haven't been through Flint Michigan lately? The number one store in Flint has to be Pawn Shops.

Sorry to hear about this crap in Selbyville. A bit close to home. I used to repo cars in that area. It can be a bit hairy at times with the "elements" growing at a fast rate everywhere. Hope the in-laws make out alright. Good score for the BOYZ IN BLUE.

+1 for Delaware's finest, and glad the guy in the Jeep wasn't hurt, but what is your BIL's insurance company going to say about the keys being left in the vehicle?

Still a stolen vehicle no matter what, even if keys are left in vehicle.

I have a fishing/hunting buddy that is an adjuster with a major insurance company and I had asked him about this a couple of months ago. I have another friend that left his keys in
his wife's tahoe by mistake one night while unloading kids. Next morning it was gone.

The way my adjuster friend explained it to me anytime you do not have permission to take a vehicle the insurance company looks at it as theft.

The fun part though will come in the other person that was hit, their insurance company will go after anybody they can to collect, just hope FIL's insurance company will step up to the
plate to protect him so he will not have a lot of hassel
