Wow, they came prepared and seemed to have known what was in there beforehand since they had plenty of help and a gooseneck to haul what they came for. I'd be looking at unfamiliar folks that had been around recently or contractors working on the place etc. Pretty ballsy too to be there for 5 hours.

I was about to post pretty much the same thing.

Very doubtful they just randomly showed up there with a huge trailer and had no idea what was inside the barn. Possible? Yes. Likely? No.

Sucks man, I know the feeling. Had our ranch house burglarized a couple weeks back. The pictures of the pieces of s#*t should help identify them and catch up to them. Wish your buddy the best of luck....cant believe they stole the whole barn

Yea definitely prepared and not too concerned about getting caught. 5 hours is a long time to be in one place stealing..

^^^ My guess is that was an inside job. Someone who knew the family and knew they would be away. 5 hours and a gooseneck? Unreal

I recall a dark colored GM truck stealing campers, in fact I think it was a forum member who had two campers stolen by the same truck.

Interested in the pictures of the truck.

My gut tells me it is close by. That’s a lot of gear to strap down on one trailer and get everything bound right in the dark. I am sure you told the police but I would also call the local game warden it seems they are on properties more than police.

Moving forward maybe get a few AirTags for cheap peace of mind. Or spend the money on a few tracking devices.

Hate to read these post but feel it is going to get worse with the times.

Yeah that’s well planned & too comfortable to hang around that long especially brave enough to fire up a Diesel engine tractor & take time loading it onto a trailer plus all the ATVs
They don’t look like the type that operates tractors on a regular basis especially loading onto trailers
Crazy & hate that for the victim

Look at the time on the picture. The first one is near 9pm and barn door is closed. At midnight the door is open.

Imo it means they weren't really worried about time much less getting caught. 3 or 4 guys could load all that stuff pretty easy. Having a trailer long enough for one trip is another thing. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't drive the utvs off

I saw a similar pink childs 4-wheeler strapped down on the back half of a flatbed diesel tractor trailer today. Feller was having some tractor problems. He had a load of some kind of flat sheets of something on the front half of the trailer. He had gotten off I20 west bound at the FM 2871 exit (on the far west side of Ft Worth) to look at his truck. I thought that odd to have a child's toy like that. But also thought it cool to strap it down like a load too. This was around 3:30-3:40 today.



Now, it makes me wonder if they might have sold the stolen pink toy at a truckstop or something.

Big boy in second pic does not appear to be in first pic. However, the first person in the first pic appears to be in the second pic also. Similar build, hat, and dress. Similar chin hair. And both pics have reflective strips on the shoes. I'd say your looking at possibly 4 people, at least.

I have seen mention of them being there 5 hrs and having a gooseneck haul trailer but it would take a heck of a trailer to haul a tractor, 2 SxS & 2 wheelers.

Good reason to have a security camera system when you have those high dollar items or even a cell cam would have sent the owner pics immediately. I’m surprised they didn’t see the trail cam and steal it.

When I went to the Police Academy in early 1984, one of the officers instructing part of it said that in his opinion, probably 95% of burglaries were an inside job. He said inside meaning either somebody that was a family member, was a neighbor or a knew one of those two. Basically they knew what they were going to get when they entered. It could be an entire barn full of equipment like this or it could have been to get a PlayStation out of the kids bedroom.

Whatever they were looking for, it was likely not random.
