Default Thieves got meógot a description of their vehicle

We moved on the first of July and left a few things in the barn at the old house and Iíve been slowly bringing them over to the new garage. Iíve been building shelves and making space to cram everything from a 36x36 building into a three car garage. Today I went over to the old house to check on a painter and saw the doors were open to the building. They took my utility trailer, chain saw, air compressor, distribution hitch, etc etc. My neighbor actually saw them and thought something odd was happening and got a good description of the truck. Said it was a late 90s early 2000s model chevy, tan/sandstone color, extended cab pickup. Had damage to the front bumper; no license plate on front and paper on back. Iím sure they are long gone but you never know. Trailer is 6x12, tall ramp gate with led lights under the ramp. They even took my kids paddle boards lol. Sheriff came out and now Iím just ******. This was just North of Tomball off 2978/Hardin Store Rd area. Sorry for the long rant.

good luck. My wife saw a break in down the street. The owners son had been living there but moved to Dallas. She described the truck to the owner and he told his son to come check things out as there was still belongings of his in the house. He heard the description of the truck and the people in it and said, " I know that truck and who it belongs to."

Police went and checked em out......no evidence and no arrests.

Who else knew what was there? If you had other contractors on site recently I would think you have it narrowed down.

Hope they get what they deserve. The vehicle description sounds like the vehicle that hit me and ran off. It would have damage to the right front, and was a Chevy about same year and color. Accident was in Corpus, but doesn’t mean it’s not the same dirtbag.

Sounds like a truck that stole windows from a jobsite of mine not too far from there a few years back

I had the same problem contractor workers, came back and tried to clean out our garage
The police said it was unfortunate but couldn’t do anything, because we lacked a security system, we handled it through the construction company ( he fired some employees) but I wish we could have pressed some charges

Update—A Montgomery County Sheriff called me today saying he found my trailer parked in a subdivision abandoned on the side of the road. I can’t believe I’m getting it back! I’m on the road today so I get to bail it out of the holding yard when I get back. Very thankful for the LEOs who helped out.

Great news. Most are not so lucky.

Thievery is getting bad over there.

This is really random, but I found an exact match of the truck that was seen stealing my stuff not too far from the old house. I talked to a neighbor of where I saw the truck who swears they run a chop shop. I sent pics to my neighbor and he confirmed the truck was a match as best he could remember. I’m not sure how many older chevys have a messed up bumper, paper plates, and live close to where the trailer was dumped but seems like it is worth exploring. Do I just call the Sheriff or go vigilante lol?

We feel safe in our little neighborhood but its crazy the amount of thefts that have increased out here. someones always stealing trailers, stuff out of barns etc. in the surrounding areas. im not hearing too many home break ins but im not in the know. they know easy targets. Tomball PD facebook posting peoples faces all the time looking for thiefs caught on camera. wasnt like this not long ago. I got a kiddo thats 4. this used to be country. well prob be moving further out before hes out of elementary. Everywhere you look theres new houses being built and woods cut down. I will say the tomball police are on the roads in force. those dang guys have pulled me over for just about anything wrong (license plate lights, no turn signals, going a few miles over, phone) to chat/look for real issues, and im happy about it. Ive never received a ticket. i just work odd hours and theyyl pull you over for lil bitty stuff after midnight on main street to check you out. Im very happy with the police presence here.

OP glad youre getting your trailer back. sounds like i live about 5 minutes from you.

That’s surprising you are getting that back. Leads me to believe it might not have been the contractors. Probably some tweaker that figured out they couldn’t hock it

Because they are to lazy to work and earn it. Their just plain garbage and should b dealt with in a severe manner when caught. Cut their hands off and then haul them to a garbage dump and buried where they belong.
