Re: Stolen last night

Still have not heard back from my son's friend. He said he doesn't want to call crackhead ten times a day. That most likely would spook him.

Re: Stolen last night

Do you have any local swap meets/ flea markets in the area? That might be a venue to search as well. Sometimes when I went to our local swap meet I see things selling abnormally cheap and crowds gather round. I really suspect these situations.

We do not have those swap meets in my area. I'm pretty sure he has been parting out my truck and was probably down to the motor, cab, n frame and had to get it away from his deer camp last week before season started. I actually spoke with one of the sheriff deputies at the grocery store just a little while ago and when I mentioned the story going around, he said that he would have a Arkansas Game Warden "show up" and check the deer camp and see if there was any sign of a truck, pieces of a truck, or even a dead spot of grass on the ground where a truck had been sitting since April. He said that the crackhead was a well known crackhead and petit thief and they would make a pass by his house to see if they saw anything suspicious.

But of course it never occurred to them to check out "the usual suspects" until now .

Re: Stolen last night

Just heard today from a friend who just happens to own some land next to "Mr. Crackhead" that a red 90's swb fleetside has been parked at his house and sometimes parked behind his house. He says he has not seen "Mr. Crackhead" in a while, but he's gonna check the red truck out to see if it has a chrome front bumper with vertical guards on it AND if it has Hankook Ventus 275 60r15 tires. May be just another coincidence, but I surely hope this is all coming together.

Re: Stolen last night

My son just got a 16 second video taken by his friend with a cell phone of a truck that could be ours going down the road in a town 30 miles away. If it is ours, they have done some switcheroo to it......different wheels, tires, front bumper, and plain white tailgate with no GMC or Chevy logo of any kind on it. What's even better is the license number is very plain to make out. Cops are running it now!

Cop calls and says the license plate comes back to a white '93 Chevrolet truck in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, which is about 70 miles from where I live. It clearly, CLEARLY, has a GMC front grille in the video. The tailgate is also plain white......no Chevy or GMC logo on it at all. He said they are gonna contact the local police there and get them to send someone out tomorrow to the residence and check the vin plates. I told them a couple of little things about the truck that they could look for that would give them more proof if it's mine.

Re: Stolen last night

Chief of Police called today and said there was something suspicious with the plates on the white truck in the video. He says stay cool and let them "do some more digging."

Jesus, how much digging do they have to do. They ran the plates, they don't match the truck. What more do they need? Sorry but I wouldn't be able to stay "cool" at this point!

He did not actually say anything specific except that the license plate was suspicious and the address where the plate came back to wasn't correct. I don't know what the police in the other town told him.

Chief didn't tell me this bit of information, but my cop friend did.....he said that there used to be a truck theft ring in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, where they took several trucks apart and reassembled them as sort of Frankenstein trucks. Then painted them and resold them. The truck in the video could be mine.....with a plain tailgate, pin stripes removed, bed rails put on, different wheels & tires, and different front bumper. I told the Chief to have the cops in Pine Bluff look for a couple of specific things on our truck. He said he will have them look. I don't think they found the truck at the address listed with the license plate.

Re: Stolen last night

Police Captain in charge of my case called earlier and told me that the address that goes along with the license plate on the truck in the video is fictitious. He sent the video and pictures of my truck to the Pine Bluff police department. That's about all they can do until the truck is seen again......if it's seen again. I believe that was it!

Crap man. You'd think they'd be able to track the person down who has that truck registered to them!

Re: Stolen last night

I'm gonna tell you exactly what I think about this......I think the cops don't know where to look, they have a deal with the crook to leave him on the street as an informant, or they just don't want to take the time to look for it. Pine Bluff, Arkansas, is a mean town with shootings happening weekly. I don't think the cops over there want to look for it.

My cop friend told me that they probably have more serious problems over there than a stolen truck from another town. That's probably gonna be where this story ends.......

Re: Stolen last night

I work in Helena. I know how Pine Bluff is. Still though, car thieves aren't what they have to worry about. That's a lot easier than dealing with the gangs.
