I had my truck and trailer stolen this evening from the Saline public boat ramp. They must have found my address and came back to my house and used my garage door opener to open the garage door. My wife and 16month old son were at the house. She heard the garage door open and saw a truck like mine rolling down the road. She called me and asked if I left the garage open. I said no. She saw the truck pull to the end of or street and talk to a woman in another pickup. The woman in the pickup then drove right into our driveway, got out and came into our garage and knocked on the door leading into the house. My wife yelled that she had a gun and that she needed to leave. She left. Took one hour for the police to respond. Pay the money and launch at the villages or Lake Palestine Marina.

If anyone has a tandem axle trailer for a 20ft bass boat (cobra 201d), I'm in the market.

WOw. Sorry to hear your story. Out of curiosity and wanting to know how to handle situation like that... what did you do with the boat when you found out? How did you get it out?

My boat is still on the lake..fortunately, I had a friend call one of his friends that lived on the lake and they let me use their boathouse. My wife said the trailer was not on my truck when they came by the house. I live less than 3 miles from the boat ramp. Hopefully I will recover the trailer. If you see a blue tandem axle cobra trailer, it's mine.

Wow - that is bad on so many fronts. Thats just sorry.

Someone stole the garage opener out of my truck at tawak this spring, i figured they might decide to make an appearance at the casa so i called my wife had her lock the garage down and wiped the memory as soon as i got home so that opener wouldnt work anymore. Kinda freaky knowing some probable meth head has basically a key to your house.

Dang Kenny sorry to hear that. I will keep an eye out for your trailer. Can you describe your truck?
Also, you can call Smith County Sheriffs office and request a CIP (Check in Passing) they will drive by daily for a couple weeks with a description of your truck and plates they can watch for that around your neighborhood.

I hope you get both back soon.

That ramp has been a problem for years. So much has been stolen and so many windows nave been broken. Many years ago when we had tournaments out of that ramp we would call sheriff office an request a patrol. Never ever use that ramp at night.
To many bad things happen at that ramp.

will keep a look out for your trailer...

What he said. Felt lucky to get out of there alive one night. Shady, shady place. I'll never use it again day or night.

Had my truck broke into at the Flat Creek public ramp on Palestine last Thursday. Used that Saline ramp this morning before I read this and saw a State trooper pull thru.

Took an hour for the police to get there.... so glad your wife was armed and able to deter the thieves. Wish you the best in recovering your property and thanks for the heads up on that ramp.

Probably would take more manpower than they have but why don't the police put a boat and trailer
out at some of the worst ramps for theft and do a sting operation? Might make these thieves think twice
before stealing.
