Sometimes I just wonder about this human race. We woke up this morning and my little boy's go cart had been stolen. We had pulled it out of the garage last weekend and cleaned it up together and got it all pimped out and were driving it around. It is my own fault I left it on the side of the house a few nights in a row. But it is big, weighs 160#'s so I was not to worried. To be honest I did not give it a second thought. We live in a nice area, leave our doors unlocked etc.
I don't mind losing my tools, and equipment and such. Well, I mind but you just know that sooner or later your job trailer, or whatever will get hit. But they stole my little 9 yr old boys go cart. His pride and joy. It was very cool. As you can see it is a little Prowler Jr.

Ours was yellow, but exactly like this one. I can't find the pics of ours at this very second, I think they are on my other computer. But it just makes your heart sick to tell your little boy as we walks down the road from school that his car is gone.
 
My favorite pic of my son, we were golfing together.. He can almost beat me..
Worst part is they he is young enough to think that CSI is going to show up and dust our driveway for foot prints and find the dirty buggers that took it. Of course the cops said that we have about ZERO chance of ever seeing it again, but my cute little boy is sure that there are at least 50 cops working on finding it as we speak. Poor little guy. We will be posting flyers and such this weekend, hitting the pawn shops for a while to watch for it.
Why, why, why.....
I am not a perfect person by any means, but I could never steal anything, let alone something that I knew was a little kids toy??
ok, enough whinning,
Thanks for listening

Frantz I'm so sorry for your son.  What type of person can to things like that?  Hope they get hives or the flu..maybe someone saw or heard something in the neighborhood, or someone will notice a new toy in the garage & do the right thing.  He is a handsome guy!  Will be thinking good thoughts for you guys.  J

Your culprit is most likely between the ages of 9yo to 16 yo.

My bike was stolen at about the same age as your son. I still remember the feeling of loss. About four years later, I was delivering newspapers and saw my bike in someones garage. i took it. they called police on me. They said it was theirs and prove it was mine. I had placed my initials inside the tire rim w. my grandfathers engraving tool. I told cop, just look on ibnside of rim, my name is there. There response was I had applied the writing after I stole it.  I had to give bike to them. My parents knew the truth, but they made me give bike back anyways to avopid confrontation w/ cops. That winter, i beat the you know what out of kid on golfcourse sledding hill. The joy of kicking the crap out of him didnt make up for loss of bike.

Konasdad, that's awful, and again, we've got parents who knew darned well that bike wasn't their kid's allowing him to get away with stealing.  What creeps, raising a creep.

Wouldn't the engraving on the inside of a tire rim be really old dirty and possibly rusty after 4 years?

Yes the engraving was old and dirty. Yes they were a family of creeps raising creeps. It didn't make a difference b/c they were adament and my parents chose the safest route for me, not the "path of truth." In hindsight, knowing how things turn out sometimes, it was the safer path to travel.

Frantz- your son will grow up and recall this day when his child loses something to a thief and be there for his kid. Its all part of life, the good and the bad....

Now, what are your plans for building a newer and better go-cart?

Ok, I thought since the police were involved they would have noticed.  I guess i've been reading too many mystery novels rolleyes

Well, I have to say I am one surprised SOB right now. Late last night I get the call from Deputy Lopez and he tells me to come pick up my cart. I could not believe it. They got a tip from a father that his  daughter and her drugy boyfriend had a stolen a little yellow golf cart or something. The father told them it was locked up in a trailer in his driveway and that he did not have the key, but since it was in his driveway they could come cut the lock and take a look. Sure enough it was mine. I had given a detailed enough description that they just told me to come get it. By the time I got there they had the whole force out there taking a look at it. Since it is so unusual. I have to hand it to the boys, and of course the father who took the time to report it. I wanted to thank him, but he did not want to talk to me, don't blame him I guess. The daughter and boyfriend had left. The police talked to the daughter but the boyfriend had left. The deputy talked to me a little about charges and such, but said that a detective would get with me later about that.
Of course my son did not sleep a wink last night. He is pretty excited. I think that he would have slept in the car last night in the garage if I would have let him. I will post of pic of the happy renunion later.
Thanks all for your kind words, my son and I definately found solice in reading the posts each day.

Oh Frantz, that is wonderful!  Makes you feel good that the Father did the right thing.  Maybe the girl will find someone decent to go out with now.  Could a whole change in the family for the good.  If nothing else the Dad stood up for what was right, even if the Daughter is angry for awhile.  Yes, pics of the happy reunion are in order!  J

That sucks.

Within 1 month, my mail was stolen as well as a big batch of dahlia blooms and the cash box from sales.

Had to buy a security mailbox, and bolt a locking cash box to our flower cart...

I am happy your boy got his cart back!

Maybe not the right thing here but a neighbour got chain saw lawnmower stolen from garage in the summer turned out to be kids as they were caught in the local town with the mower cutting peoples lawns for summer money. What did he do but let them off and told police "Garda" he wanted no charges brought against them. Nice thing to do. So police gave them a talking to and the parents.

My neighbour did take action though he wired his garage door handle "as the main door is fiberglass" to an electric fence battery as he can enter the garage from the main house to disconnect it. God love those kids if they try it again  grin grin grin

Won't do any good if they are not grounded. My grandson grabbed the neighbors electric fence, raised it up and walked under it. He had on tennis shoes.

Frantz, awesome you guys got the cart back.  And good for that father.  I can imagine he doesn't want to talk to anyone, he's embarrassed his daughter was such an idiot.  Some people do try to raise their kids right, I guess, but once they reach that age, their decisions are their own, but they do reflect on the parents.  Well, lessons learned all around, some good, some not so good - but your boy has his cart back, and that's what counts!

Good things still happen, I'm glad your boy got his ride back.
Some people will steal any thing if they think they can get something out of it. 
I've even known garbage to be stolen if packaged properly...Like packing it in old apple boxes and stacking them on the back porch.

Brian, you are so funny, with just the right bit of orneriness!  I remember a story from quite awhile ago where someone ran over their cat in the driveway, didn't have time to bury it so put it in a Nordy's bag before the kids saw it.  Then someone stole it out of their car..can't remember the rest but do remember laughing till I cried!  What fun to watch people carting off your apple crates full of garbage...for free! grin  J

I have a similar story / experience.

When I was a child, our refrigerator went bad and had to be replace. When they delivered the new one they placed the old one out by the street to be picked up by the city trash truck. They would have hauled it off themselves but it was to heavy for two men to get it into the truck. Well, after it stayed on the curb for two trash cycles because it was to heavy for the city employees to hoist into the truck, my father hung a "FOR SALE" sign on it. Someone stole it that night!

True story, Steve

Knew a paperboy once, who come Christmas time would steal packages out of people's mailboxes, got a lot of neat stuff.  Then one day he ended up with Frillies from Victoria Secrets; back in the days when Victoria still had secrets.

Frantz, I'm really glad you got your son's gocart back.

There was a neighborhood yrs ago across the lake from where I live that was safe, they never locked their doors nor their car doors even.

A bad seed showed up this one time after all these yrs and the place wasn't that safe evermore.

Please, for the love of God, lock your doors and put your stuff away, there's scum in this wonderful world we live in, this is a fact.

Frantz, such a sad story that came to have a happy ending.  I know the grief that your child must have felt, his pride and joy gone.  Children have such an innocence, that beautiful thing, it is such a horrible nasty that they even have to be subject to this evil part of human beings.  In my eyes, theft is one of the worst and most condescending of crimes.  It is the nasty part of the human soul that should never be let to surface. 

In our past years as foster parents, we have had many things stolen from us, from insider jobs, that this would make your head swim.  Most of them have been plain and simply stuff that can be replaced, but there has been a few times when certain things that have gone missing cannot be replaced.  Such a sad state of affairs.

I picture your young Son, dreaming of riding his car again, oh that is a happy day.  So glad that things turned out as they did.  Have a most wonderful, awesome day, groove on this life.  Cindi
