Stolen Tacoma w/trailer

I was parked at the Edwards sanitation plant yesterday (July 23) between 10 am and 1:45 pm. I had a 8X12 Aluma trailer attached with green indoor-outdoor turf on the bed, attached to my 01 black Tacoma (CO Plate: 966 TNV) with a snug top high rise topper. If anyone has any inofrmation leading to the despicable person involved in stealing my things please help me find them.

I also wanted to throw this out there in the communitty to remind everyone that leaving your keys on the vehicle can lead to obscene results. I had mine pre-hidden in a magnetic lockbox so no one could've even saw me hide them. The gear inside my vehicle was worth far more to me than my truck and trailer. Please let my bad luck remind you to leave very little valueables in your rig while out playing on the water.

That's pretty brazen. I hope they catch the idiot(s) responsible. Good advice about valuables.

That is really sad to hear, I always leave my keys on my car there. I hope you find the scum who did this.

Funny thing is, probably not a river rat at all. Probably just someone lookling to get up on someone else. The bright side of things lie in the fact that I still have my raft. My how the river karma flows through my soul...

If you can list some of the things that were in your vehicle, I'd be happy to browse craigslist and ebay for you over the next several days.

Better yet, lets leave the keys where you normally do and hide w/ guns in the brush! Just don't leave a key that starts the car/truck. Thief hunting 101! They'll be back looking for another easy grab.

Get a combination lock-box, like real estate agents use on the houses they are selling. I always keep a single spare key in one, locked to the tie-down loops in the bed of my truck. It's great for boating and for those occasional brain farts when you (I) lock your keys in your (my) car.

Thank you everyone for all of the support and thought you have put into not only my situation but the MountainBuzz in general. Apparently, a mixup occurred with one of the local shuttle drivers and my truck was recovered with everything intact.

Matt I think you have a great idea btw. Thanks again evryone. Come on by the Gashouse in Edwards sometime so we can chat about things other than lost/stolen goods.
