Well its happened again this past Friday! Someone did not just try to break into the Boss' van, they broke in, got it started and took off with it and its contents all in less than 2 minutes! The boss was dropping off some materials and was in the building for no more than 2 minutes TOPS when someone seized the chance to grab the van... No word on if its been found yet or whats going on, but this is just a word of warning that locks won't always stop the determined criminal!
Thats truely a nightmare - not kidding, it is one that woke me last night. It's a paranoia that I have come to accept. 2 minutes is really quick, so this guy must have some serious specialized practice at it model specific. Thats a door lock or window, then an ignition. It can be done, but they would need to be really good. Are they sure it was not towed? An unreputable tow truck driver is one that could move something that quick. Pull up, lift, pull around the corner and then strap it. From what I understand it is more and more common these days.

Well an update, Apparently they found the van in the north end of the city not far from where it went missing. The details on if anything is gone out of it I do not know or how it did get stolen.. As for the make and model, it is something like a '97- 98 Chev Savanna, BRIGHT red with vinyl lettering on it. Sticks out like a sore thumb really. Not too sure but I think it might of had a few coils of copper in it and some other tools inside.
