04:43 am - pics of wrecked stolen van
Bloodhounds have been out for an hour or so. The officer on scene thinks they may have a good shot at catching this guy, since the hounds are still tracking. I fucking hope so.

Turns out the plates on the van were stolen off of it in its lot about ten days ago. The van itself was stolen tonight.



Thumbnails above are all clickable. Brief synopsis: guy turns off the road, drives the passenger side front of the van hard into the house side of the big oak in my yard, spins around clockwise and slams the driver's side into the oak on the fence line, and the van spins counterclockwise around that tree to take out my fence section and the street signs. You can't really tell from these pics, but this guy could have spun the van right into me sleeping in my bed if he'd hit the big tree at a different angle. As to why he drove off the road at high speed and into my yard in the first place, we won't know unless the hounds catch him. Preferably by biting him in the nuts. Hard.

Hopefully Tropic-Aire's insurance will cover this shit because I really don't want to be out the hefty deductible from my homeowners' insurance.


 
Current Mood: pissed off and tired

Damn! It sounds like you've had quite the weekend. Your dog is adorable, BTW.

What the hell? He liked the plates so much he had to go back for the van?

I hope the dogs caught up with him and he tried to run.

Who the fuck steals an air conditioning repairman's van?

Very nicely done. I hate to see a half assed stolen van wreck. Looks to me like this guy's done this before.

That is crazy!

At least it was an opportunity to say "release the hounds"
