Quote: If you have ever mentioned your workplace or if your name is on the company website a thief could find that by Googling;or if a thief found your home address through phone listings then he could shadow you to work,and steal the trailer knowing you would be busy inside.A pair of bolt cutters is as fast as a key,and the whole process of pulling next to your vehicle,cutting the lock,hooking to the thief's vehicle could take less than 5 minutes.I'm not giving thieves any ideas here they already know these things.The binos will likely be in a pawn shop or on ebay or craigslist within hours.Doubtful the police will find ,or even look for the trailer and contents;a friend had his shop emptied of expensive machinists tools and was told to collect the insurance and let the police know if HE saw any of the items offered for sale anywhere.
Quote:I am truly sorry! I hope your trailer turns up, and in usable condition. Keep your spirits up. We can't let the bad guys win.
