Mickey the Mope and Sneaky Sam are cruising your neighborhood right now looking for your snow blower. That’s right they do not care if your rich or poor, young or old, they want your snow blower and they want it now.
Thieves need two things to complete the job, ability and opportunity. You have the capability to control the opportunity provided to a thief by following a few simple guidelines.

It only takes less than 15 seconds to pick it up, throw it in a vehicle, and be gone with your property.
If you see a suspicious vehicle or people call the police. Reporting accurate information to include day, date, time, and location of the suspicious activity is essential to catching these thugs. Be specific in your description(s).

"Hello, is this the Sheriff's Office?"
"Yes. What can I do for you?"
"I'm calling to report 'bout my neighbor Virgil Smith....He' s hidin' marijuana inside his firewood! Don't quite know how he gets it inside them logs, but he's hidin' it there."
"Thank you very much for the call, sir."
The next day, the Sheriff's Deputies descend on Virgil's house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, ut find no marijuana. They sneer at Virgil and leave. Shortly, the phone rings at Virgil's house.
"Hey, Virgil! This here's Floyd....Did the Sheriff come?"
"Yeah!" "Did they chop your firewood?" "Yep!"
"Merry Christmas, buddy!"
