More Bad Luck - Van Broken Into


My phone, wallet, GoPro helmet camera and some other things were stolen from my unlocked minivan today while I was parked on the side of A1A just south of the St. Lucie Powerplant. When the cops came they said that there had been a string of smash-and-grabs in that area, all within a few hours, and that they were doing their best to find the perpetrators. They spent quite a while asking me questions for the report and taking fingerprints from my van, which made me feel better. It might have actually been a good thing that the door was unlocked, since the other victims' had their windows broken out. Apparently the police suspect two African American guys driving a white Crown Victoria, which is ironic since the Crown Vic was probably an old cop car bought at a police auction.

Anyway, until further notice I have no cell phone. If I used to have your number I don't have it anymore, so email it to me if you want me to have it again.

That sucks!!!

James, if it makes you feel any better, I called the dudes up at your number and told them they were real dicks.

Thanks Aaron. I actually replaced the phone this afternoon. Since you didn't know it was me on the line, I'll forgive you for calling me a dick. :P

Thats a pisser about your van. Same thing happened to Brandon, I'm not sure where he parked but I told him about your experience. I sent you an email last Thursday about wave sailing and it came back undeliverable? Did they steal you email account as well? This Thursday and possibly Wednesday look good for wave sailing.
