Default Truck was broken into

I know this has been posted before, but to day it happened to me,
I went out out at 1:pm to run some errands when I found the drivers
door unlocked then saw the in side my cab ever thing from behind the passenger seat tools, tie down straps, tarp, etc pulled out all over the cab,
my box's of Electric Eel brochures opened,

But the worse part was they broke apart the plastic around the
steering column trying to hot wire it, some how they broke some kind of switch
I have full power when key turned on but when I hit the starter nothing


Tango Edit :

MACPLUMB777 is going to need some help from us to get his truck back on the road in these tough times. He's trying to set up a go-fund-me page and when it's ready will pitch in to help him out.

That really blows man, if you're missing any hard to find tools let us know, I will gladly send you anything you can't otherwise replace.

No plumbing tools just truck tools, jack handle, jumper cables etc
They were just pulled out all over the passenger side,
I have not gone though it yet to see if anything missing, but did have police come out and make a report,

my problem is I don't have the money to get it fixed until Oct 19,
and no way to get to the bank to deposit check I get

I’m sorry to hear that, I’ve been through it. Now I have the extra hassle of putting Slick Locks on every day when I get home.

Tweakers suck!

that really sux.....I know the feeling.....
as far as depositing checks, I scan them through my home computer and deposit into any account I want, including my business checking, am sure every bank should have that type of deposit from a remote place..

I had my truck cleaned out a couple weeks ago. I don't normally carry many tools anymore, but that night I had a ProPress on the truck as well as a cordless drill and impact driver. They also took my 20 year old tool box. A thief has no sense of proportion. You steal a man's tools, you are stealing his livelihood.

I got a lock on the back door of my truck.....
the cab is separate from the box ---so all they are gonna get out of
the front cab is an old coffe cup and if they really dive deep the might
find my gun if I forgot to bring it into the house for the night.......


it sucks when the electrical is fooked up cause you are not stranded until someone can make repairs.....
