Thieft - what kind of person?

Venting... Yesterday, I removed my spare tire from my Disco 2 to replace the rear wiper arm. Ended up needing to run to the dealership to get some 'push clips' to replace the interior door card. Gone for about an hour and returned home to learn SOMEONE STOLE MY TIRE. It was in my driveway in the rear of my house; I can only assume someone trash 'repurposing' assumed it was available to take, even though it was up next to my garage door.

I HATE THIEVES!

I know. I was pretty floored; took me about 5 minutes to wrap my head around it... Did I put it somewhere, did my kids move it, did I put it back on the Rover? Last thing I though was that it was stolen. I drove all of the alleys in our neighborhood and looking in all of the pickup beds.

The police office said to keep an eye on Craig's List.

I feel the same way. My wife had her LR4 stolen last week, minutes after she walked into the gas station.

To make the story short, he dumped the car about 2 miles away, ransacked everything in the vehicle, took her credit cards and iPhone, but he forgot his....

Cops used track myiphone app to locate where he was at, and the cracked into his to phone to see who he was.

Car stolen at 12am, he was behind bars by 5am. Charged with theft of vehicle over 50K, using stolen credit cards, and theft of iPhone. 18 year old kid on a several day drug binge.

We were lucky no one got hurt, and the kids were not in the car....

I see you mentioned alleyways, so I'm assuming you have the same problem as me. Every day pickup trucks full of all sorts of junk roll through the alleys looking for scrap metal. I had a good DII radiator sitting next to the car I was working on stolen out of my back yard.

Yes. However, it's common for people to put decent furniture, yard equipment, and other large items that they do not want to take to the donation center or dump, they put on the alleyway and some might pick it up for their use. I often see pickups driving the alleys with old stuff in the bed.

I've just never though someone would take something from next to my house.

Jason... Glad you got your LR back and no one injured. Alas, having something taken is such an uncomfortable feeling.

Unfortunately, the keys were laying in floor. She parked at the door, and the boy walked right out, the station is just out from the college around tons of apts...

I thought others might have had theft problems before. A spare doesn't compare to the entire vehicle.

Wow! That's awful. Glad everything turned out well.

I also had someone break into my home through a dog door in the basement. They took all of my girlfriend's jewellery including a bunch of family heirlooms.

16?

If so, I don't have any wheels, but I do have a new or nearly new tire you could have. My boss and another coworker each drive to Dallas on most weekends. I'm sure one of them would let me toss it in their trunk or truck bed.
