I always read the "I got my stuff ripped off from bass pro shops parking lot stories" and shake my head. We live in a brutal world. Why leave anything of value in your car? Here in the Houston Heights you might as well just throw your stuff away if you're going to do that. I'm a pretty locked down individual and I'm definitely not afraid to walk out of the house with a shotgun and stick it up to a thieve's head .....like I did a few years ago.

However how can you prepared for somebody stealing your front door??? Yup, our front door!! Now we are in the process of having our house totally renovated and we're not currently living there ( renting the house immediately next-door). I got home from the airport at 11 o'clock last night and when I pull past the house being remodeled I could not understand why the contractors left the door wide open! Upon further investigation I realized the door was gone!

It would be funny if it wasn't so sad and it wasn't like it was $200 cheapo from Walmart. Oh well motion detector goes up, they'll be back and they will wish like hell they didn't.

Geeze.. I've heard of them stealing some off the wall stuff before, but to take the whole door? That's a new one..

I had some tools stolen out if the bed of my truck at a stoplight before.. Pulled up next to me, jumped out, tossed stuff in their trucks and sped off before I even processed what happened. Jokes on them tho.. They snatched maybe $50 worth of harbor freight wrenches.. Lol

MY GF lives in the Heights. Her jeep got broken into a few times and she got on the nextdoor app, coordinated with her neighbors and they eventually found the meth/crack head that was stealing everyone's stuff.

Somewhat unrelated since you own the place. But I know if more than one land lord that used to take the front door off of his rent houses to be "repaired" when people were late on rent. Maybe someone needed to replace their front door.

I hope the this is an open and shut case. The investigation will probably hinge on fingerprints or DNA. This thief should be locked up. If they catch him, have a few fingers of knob creek to celebrate. Or find the crook and slam him.

I went to dental school in New Orleans, and my room mates and I lived in a rent house in an OK neighborhood. I came home late one night, put my key in the door, and stopped, because something was different. I couldn't figure it out in the dark, so I blew it off. The next day, when I got home from school, the issue was obvious. Three of the eight foot cypress shutters on the front of the house were gone. Of course, in New Orleans, anything is worth stealing apparently. On a related note, my father and I went to a Saints game one Sunday, and we had to walk adjacent to the expressway for some distance. Well, large portions of the highway railing were replaced with welded angle iron where thieves had sawed off the 8" thick aluminum railing. My father and I figured that they could have made more money per hour at minimum wage working an honest job, but they'd rather work at stealing.

When I was a kid my day would purchase houses to renovate and rent out. We had houses all over Houston. The thieves look for houses being renovated. They see deliveries and workers, that's their target. We would have carpet installed, the next day, all gone. Appliances, doors, toilets, you name it, they would steal it. My dad had a couple of bouncer type guys he paid to live in the houses while they were undergoing construction and he found a renter. I remember a couple of nights my dad headed out with a couple of guns to go try to catch people breaking in.

Wow that's really strange! Years ago I had a friend that owned a lot of rentals. When someone got way behind in their rent he would remove the front door and tell them it needed repairs.

I wonder if he's a contractor in TX now?

I am on it, I will post the event to let the neighbors know. I also reported it to the HPD.

A few years ago I became involved in some of the area crime meetings ... can you believe there were some neighbors that thought that we should just allow people to rifle through our cars at night because after all they are not in our houses! And then when I pulled my stunt with the 870 one neighbor said ....I guess I had the right to do it because after all somebody in my wife's car at one in the morning was somewhat of an invasion of privacy! Invasion of privacy it's called a robbery!

Used to live in the Valley during Highschool. When we would drive into MEX the rule was to leave your windows cracked and have absolutely nothing in the car. This way the thieves would look inside, see nothing and see they have access to look further and give up as there is no prize to be had. If you didn't do this your windows would be broken out as the thieves broke into your car.

So, if you want to live inner loop just keep all you possessions in storage and leave your house empty and your door open at all times

If you have mud flaps on a Camaro of any year, you have bigger problems than theft.

I'm not too far away in Montrose. I was trained by living in Memphis for a few years to leave absolutely nothing in my vehicle in plain sight, and it does not matter what time of the day it is.

As for a door, I just have no words...although your avatar made me get the tune in my head from "He's Gone" except instead of "Steal your face right off your head" it would go a little more like "Steal your door right off your hinge"

That's what I like about living in a small town. Most of my neighbors kind of look out for each other!
If I see something going on that doesn't look right, I will often times either check on it myself(with my CC on) or I'll call the cops and have them check on it!

That's how a lot of people shop. They drive around and tell their buddy they want a door just like that one and when I say just like, I really mean just that one. You can save a lot of money that way versus going to Home Depot, or Lowes especially if it is really nice door because it is probably special order.

I have seen this and hoses disconnected from air compressors several times. The best I have seen was our painter was on the 2nd floor of a building with his spray rig outside. I hear someone screaming and sure enough a guy disconnected his hose and was running down the road pulling the spray rig behind him. Needless to say it was not hard to find with a trail of paint to follow.
