Sometime over night, my friend's truck was stolen from her back driveway. She is an elderly widow and parks what used to be her husband's truck in the very back of the property. It was backed up to the shop and was sitting in the same spot as usual. Whoever stole it, rammed the locked iron gate in order to flee. When I got the phone call about it this morning, to say I was mad was not sufficient. She seems to be taking it better than I am. I know she is scared,but she has lived in the same area all these years and does not have the option of just moving away.
The area has drastically changed over the years and lately I've been helping law enforcement to address some areas that badly needed attention. Just heard that several arrests were made because I had the courage to help spread the word about suspicious activities. I was told that my life might be in danger because of it, but someone had to do something. Some folks were too afraid to get involved. Not patting myself on the back or anything. I just won't be intimidated by criminals.
We can't prove that this truck theft is connected, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.
Sometimes there may have been posts where I seemed grouchy and it is partly due to what I've been dealing with. There's more that I can't really discuss on here.
Despite all of it, we're staying positive and upbeat. There are some folks that won't be intimidated and scared off.
