We launched at the public ramp on 154 close to minnow bucket on friday. Probably 30 other trucks there easy. I had 2 yeti coolers 45 and 75 both locked with wire cable. Some low lifes let tailgate down and commenced to using some type of cutters to break the cable and snatch both of them!! Wondering if anyone else had trouble that day. I'll never use public ramps there again.

They shot be shot, I have parked there so many times and left so much in my truck. That's ridiculous. Thanks for the heads up. Wow, that really is sorry.

Sorry for what happened. That stinks.

If I have anything valuable, I don't leave it visible even if it's inside my truck. I put a towel on it or a blanket or something. Too many lowlifes out there. Doesn't surprise me a bit that someone would steal $800 worth of coolers if they didn't even have to break into the vehicle to get them.

Been seeing a guy in a gray small car hanging out there to much. I took a picture with my phone of him here while back but have since deleted it. If anyone see's anything funny or out of the normal just take a picture with your phone. Never know if it may come in handy or not. Sorry for your loss. Low lifes everywhere you go now days. Had my wheel caps stole at the Rainswood ramp a couple of years ago.

I swear a lot of those local rif-raf just wait for out of towners to show up, hope you reported your theft to the cops.

Sorry to hear. A lot of people say the thieves are thick around there. It's a shame.

Dope heads.
Put them in prison and keep them there and things will turn around.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.”

Y'all would be surprised to see how many of these thieves are just the guy you happened to park next to at the ramp... It's an opportunist crime.... Vehicles in a boat ramp area not pulling a boat are pretty obvious. Always someone who wants what someone else has and laws these days are really relaxed on thieves.

Sorry for your loss. Every time I see yeti coolers sitting in the back of a pickup it seems to me they are asking for them to be jacked. Out of Sight-Out of Mind.

That sucks! It's sad to think that people have nothing better to do than run around and steal from hard working folks. This just reminds me of Perky though. Man don't leave ANYTHING in your truck at that ramp. Inside or in the bed.

Thieves are the worst. I really am sorry about that man. I hate getting things stolen from me more than anything.
