Quote from: bobbystahr on September 13, 2018, 11:16:06 amWell they are persistent, though I don't think the same crew.This morning about 3:30 A M, still awake on adrenaline I was paranoidly monitoring both gates front and back hourly and looking out the kitchen window I see 2 blackhoodie clad individuals on my porch trying to liberate my well locked mountain bike so I knocked on the window quite loudly and the pissants, two of them, took off between the houses and out the front gate. Gotta wonder why they didn't go to the back gate as they'd bolt cuttered my new padlock. Minor victory #1. Then looking at my bike I noticed they'd got the front wheel unlocked from the rail so I zipped in and got the one spare key they didn't get in the first break in when they took every key they saw, and brought my bike indoors. The only reason it was still out there was they stole the front lock key and I had no spare. so small victory#2. Still waiting for the city police officer they promised yesterday at noon that would come by and make an incident report....still waiting....just what it's like living in the war zone here in Winnipeg. They may well have been chasing down a guy who stabbed a guard dog, in the face, fortunately only expensive for the owners not fatal for the dog.Good news is a friend from out west sent me an e mail that an outdoor security camera will arrive from Amazon in the next short while.So things ain't all bad...at least I'm finding senior support amongst my younger friends while being gang abused by I'm thinking teen-gang members. To top it all off I'd been feeling more secure as we had a tree toppling thunder storm with heavy rain going off and on...this was in a short break in rain so I think they may be living on my street.Not asking for sympathy but more just keeping a record of these events online so if something untowards happens to me there'll be a record..I am nearly 70 and though my heart hasn't presented as problematic who knows....

Quote from: Dune on September 23, 2018, 02:00:04 amAwfull, Bobby! They are very persistent indeed. And for what? Bike parts Maybe a sign saying "this area is boobytrapped" will help. Really feel sorry for you, man. Move to a nicer neighbourhood!

Quote from: jaf on September 23, 2018, 01:12:58 pmHave you been making police reports? If you have, by now, I would think they would make some effort -- maybe post someone undercover to catch these guys. Sometimes it takes going to the media (TV, newspaper,etc.) to get some action, though it also can turn into a challenge to the bad guys. Tough situation.
