Default Thieves Got Me...

Well went out yesterday to the property to check on it after Imelda and pulled up to discover my Mule and Trailer had been taken. This is in the Beaumont area. I won't go into many details, but from something that was recovered at the scene, there is a very good chance that it makes it's way over to the Houston/Humble area so anyone over that way please keep a lookout. The pictures I'm attaching are an actual picture of the Mule, but just an example of what the trailer looked like.

Just a quick update and I am hesitant to even post it, but because of the lack of investigating that has been done, I don't see how it will hurt. This morning, I found my mule listed for sale on line. I contacted Jefferson County to let them know at 7 am. They asked where it was located and I let them know, North Houston area. They told me that is now out of their jurisdiction and to call the department where it is now located. So I called and spoke with that police department and explained the whole story. They told me since the crime happened in Jefferson County, I would need to speak to them and if Jefferson County wanted, they could call this police department and ask for their help and they would look into it.

I called Jefferson county back at 7:40 and was told that the investigators would not be in until 8 am. I called back at 8:10 and was told the investigators were not in. I called back at 8:30 and told the same, at this point I was less than pleased and voiced that to them. The lady I spoke with took my information plus the guy's information who had it listed for sale.

At 9 am I received a call from an investigator with the task force saying they were looking into it, but they don't see it listed for sale anymore and that he might have already sold it. He goes onto tell me that they are sending out officers to look into it, and at the very least he hopes that he MIGHT be able to get a conviction. I ask why he says might? He said because they don't have any witnesses seeing him at the scene taking it. I'm having a tough time keeping my cool because I have a piece of paper that I found at the scene that has this guys info, name, DL#, birth date. I also have a listing that has his name attached to as the contact with 5-6 pictures of my mule.

I go on to tell that I apologize for being so upset because I am sure he has alot on his plate and he says he does. I start into telling him, please don't forget there is also a trailer that was stolen and he hangs up on me. I call back twice, only to have him pickup and end the call without saying a word.

Sad but this happens all the time nowadays. I went through the same thing with Brazoria county once. I even found the guy that did it and was willing to turn himself in and they still wouldn't arrest him.

What is wrong with this story? If all true, this is a slam dunk case.

I would probably answer the ad to buy it, show up & take it back. And no, I'm not joking. Thieves make me sick. I would dare this POS to try and stop me once I'm there..................

Might try Texas Southwestern Cattle Raisers Assoc (TSCRA). Not sure how helpful they would be for a non member, but they recover property like this on a regular basis. The Ranger that covers the Houston district is Brent Mast 936-714-6619. Beaumont (Jefferson Co.) Ranger is Jimmy Belt 936-334-5076.

I'm sure the officer has other cases he's working, but this is a slam dunk. Unbelievable that he won't even try to catch the guy. If he would throw him in jail, they wouldn't have dozens fewer more cases to investigate in the future. He apparently is a career criminal that will continue until he's put away.

You might want to give the Texas Rangers a call... We had some 4 wheelers stolen out in the hill country and they jumped all over that case.. We never found them though. But they tried.

Yea it is a dam shame..
I actually followed a tresspasser all the way to his front porch once and had the game warden on the phone during the pursuit. Sat in the perps front yard, for a hour, with his old lady screaming and cussing me the entire time, and still no warden showed.. I'm sure he was busy..
Oh this was back in the 90's in Leon county.. Perp was probably wardens kin folk or something. Who knows..

Had a travel trailer stolen off our place one time. We had it under a hay shed, welded a ball in the hitch, took all four tires off and put it on cinder blocks, gate was locked. They cut the lock, drug the trailer out and put tires on it. One of them was seized up cause we followed drag marks for a good three miles till the gravel turned to black top and that was all she wrote. Sheriff came out and told us exactly what we already could tell from what was left behind by drag marks. Never found.

Didn't get a chance to give him a dirt nap either

Tell us more. You might want to sell these ideas because you could probably make alot of money telling people how to never get anything stolen. You might single handedly rid the world of crime. Wow

In our current political climate, I just don't understand what is expected from those of us who follow the law?

I remember my papaw calling me one day, about 30 years ago, and he said "I found out who has my trailer, that was stolen".

With my (and my best friend's) arrival, we were 8 very large men who piled into the front and back of an old Ford pickup. We didn't really have a plan, but that 20 minute ride was excruciating. I knew that it was my responsibility to be there, but I was dang scared of what was going to happen.

Eventually, Papaw pulled up to the property, and slowly rolled down the hand crank window, and announced "I'm here to get my trailer back".

A grungy old man, sitting out on the front porch, sort of pointed towards a trailer that was parked beside the shack.

Papaw backed up to the trailer, we hooked it up, and we drove off without many words.

That happened in the very far corner of North East Texas (late 80's, or early 90's), and strangely that was the last time we ever experienced a theft of anything, from our farm.
