Angry Screwdriver strikes again!

I was getting in my truck this morning and had seen my neighbor across the street at his PSD... he was on the phone and seemed to be cleaning out his truck.

Next thing I know he's right at more door trying to get my attention.... I asked what was up and he says, well..... I got broke into and wanted to make sure your rig was ok.... He said they did the normal popping the handle with the screwdriver.

We checked both PSD's in my driveway and all his rigs and it looks like his truck was the only one and he thinks all they got was a camera, which is a damn good thing considering it's his work truck and has tons of tools and equipment in it. Thank goodness.

At this point I am seriously considering those $$$ handles that they cannot break into.

In addition, we never ever have this crap happen in our neighborhood! I can leave my windows down and door unlocked.... ok well some punks did steal change out of lil bro's truck that was unlocked and on the street. But other than that.... this **** doesn't happen.

Sorry to hear about that - at least your stuff didn't get hit. I've thought about those door handle things too. I just wonder if it means I get a broken window instead of the scratched paint. I'm in horse country and we don't lock our doors either. Although my crazy ex came over a couple weeks ago and took out two windshields with a tire iron, so I guess there's no escaping things

Anyone ever walk through NYC and see the cars with cardboard signs in the window saying "There is nothing of value left in this car - please don't break the window again". Maybe that's the answer

Your ex took out two windshields????


You have a good point about them breaking the window if they can't get in through the door.... I think the only reason they didn't hit mine was because it was in the driveway.

They take a screwdriver and place it right on the lock cylinder tumbler, one swift rap, and pop,,it falls into the door cavity. The tumbler cup is plastic with a cheap little snap ring. Then they can grab the lock button shaft with a pair of needle nose and they're in.

First off I would like to state that I am not a thief. LOL But have worked with alot of neighborhood crime watch and those type things. People that have the attitude that those type thing do not happen in our neighborhood provide easy picking for the thieves to come to your area and clean up. They will not go away until you make it unappealing for them to return. JJ

Keep a yappy dog inside the truck and then hook a coil to the body of the truck. The second they touch it they will get zapped on their ***
