I'd invite them along diving for logs.
Just to make it easier for them to dive fill their pockets with lead shot.

If he could be caught, I think the best thing is the Police so he would have a record.  Then you need to luck up and get a judge with Kahuna's who will demand restitution including re-installation by the culprit.  (I'de get everybody I knew and anybody he knew to come watch him put them back.)

Then he should have his driver's license taken away for six months and have to go through all of the testing to get it back.

His having to take a trip behind the woodshed would make me feel better too. :)

What a lowlife jerk that goes through life believing "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine too". >:(

How low can some life go?  ???

Our kids used to bring trees home from school. We planted one in our front yard, too near the road, apparently. It grew into a pretty little Christmas tree and two years ago some scum stopped in our front yard with a bow saw and stole it! How could this jerk sit around this Christmas tree with the family?

Oh well. They are a minority. But I wish there was none!

Tom, that woodshed idea is great.  I think it should happen at least one a week 'till they earned the dirvers licence back.

The sad truth is that anyone who used the "behind the woodshed" would be in more trouble than the initial perpitrator. :'(  That is called child abuse today.   >:(  I call it the board of education around here. :)

  What would I do if I caught him??? If I caught him red handed stealing or if I saw him trying to sell the lights to buy dope for his habit???

 To answer the first question I would punch him out as I would be in a rage seeing a guy stealing my lights.

 To answer the second question I think if I saw this guy selling my lights I would observe him for awhile and see how desperate he was ::) Think the next thing I would do is go across the street and buy the lights off him and in a very calm voice I would ask him if I could buy him lunch. During lunch I would explain to him where the lights came from and ask him if he would like to work for me to pay them off.
 In a real world this scenario would maybe happen 30% of the time but I believe that these guys that live like this do have hearts but they live day by day and every minute is a struggle for them.
 I do work (repairing damage) for the Intensive Child Care Resource Center and I see lots of these kids that are just F#%$@! up and the world has just given up on them.
 One of the counsellors is Chris and he was my very first customers when I went on my own many years ago and we've been very good friends since.
 Anyways I hire these kids when I'm busy and it's a work exchange program that helps me pay them, it's kinda a cool program. Some of these little s@%$ heads come in with major attitudes but I treat them as an equal and when they leave they have goals.
 I will admit that 70% of them fail and end up inside but it's the ones that make it that make me proud :)
 I think that these guys that steal don't want to deep down in thier hearts but they do it to get by.

Biz,
When I wrote "I wish there was none", I was thinking "I wish I could kick their A$$'s to he||". But I kept thinking that, somehow, society was probably responsible for what they were. Not directly, but we let it happen. I wish this scum didn't exist but where do they come from. The kid that was left alone to eat ketchup and dry pasta while her dear mother was in jail, for neary three weeks, is she going to grow into a wacko tramp? Is it the kids fault?

At the risk of seeming like a turd in the punch bowl, I gotta disagree. These little snots know DanG well that what they are doing is wrong, and they're just too arrogant to care. >:(   And it ain't 'cause they're neglected or abused, either. Sure, there may be a few who steal out of need, but the vast majority have simply discovered that they can steal more in 10 seconds than they can earn in 10 hours. Many of them are from middle class families, and have siblings that don't steal, so that eliminates the environmental factor. They are just out to get something for nothing, and don't care who it hurts.

Count your blessings that it was only the tail lights.  We had someone drive in and take a walking floor trailer - only 2 years old.  Insurance company said it ain't insured since there wasn't a tractor under it.  Loss = $50,000.  Now its probably hauling garbage from out of state.

There was also a guy who had walnut trees lining his lane.  When he came home from work, they were gone.

Then there's the guy who the $729,000 Ferrari.  http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/WeirdNews/2003/09/26/210327-ap.html  But, that one was probably insured.

What a lowlife jerk that goes through life believing "what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine too".  

A wife.

However, I do like the idea of having the thief re-install the tail lights with an audience of neighbors and his peers.  After you break his thumbs with a hammer.  I tell my kids repeatedly that I have a very low regard for thieves and vandals.  

My 5 year old recently stole some candy from WalMart. I made him take money from his piggy bank, give the remainder of the candy to the cashier (Or the Manager if he didn't seem sincere), explain what he did, apologize, pay for the candy, and request she throw it away since he didn't deserve a reward for being bad.  Humiliation can be very effective...I don't think he will ever do anything like that again since the four other people in line and the cashier in the next lane all heard him.  This guy needed that done at some point.

Hey Biz,
You have a good streak in you that is infectious. My first thoughts were of crushed glass,bare feet, turpentine, slingshots. Its cool to hear that you are doing what you can to help the lost youth.

After lookin at this thread for a bit, its my opinion that it wasnt lost youth that did this but some one looking for  specific tailights. Dedhed says that these are rare and that other  people in the area were hit as well. Probably an organized parts theft ring that fills specific orders. You need allkinds of weird screwdrivers to remove these parts nowadays which makes this a pre-meditated theft as opposed to an impulse opportunistic theft usually done by missguided youth...nuther bit of info from the P.P.P. book(Percy's Psyco Psycology).

Parts theft by order is a common problem, especially on "special" parts like limited production years.  Sounds like 'gator bait to me as a fair treatment for the lowlife...'gator bait AFTER the woodshed.  YUP

A job I worked last year was just outside a fairly good sized city, but still country. Cornfields and hedgerows. I was told to watch my step in the windbreaks. One of the local landowners had spotted lights in a field one night and called it in to the sherrif. A motorcycle/ 4 wheeler chop shop was operating in the bush...not that the cops found it. His call describing lights in the field was reported as a UFO siting and ignored  >:(.
I did use the Lull to clean up a little trash in the row, man they picked 'em clean.

Round here I need to put up a gate, we "acquired" another dog this summer. People around here aren't dumb enough to try to steal, but they do drop off dogs, zeniths, zucchini, squash and maters if you wander away from home for long  ::).

That just blows my mind how it could happen and people not get caught or shot. Someone had to use the wood locally.

I think somebody stopped by and the guy said he bought the trees.  Nothing else was asked.  

Most guys in the business had an idea who it was and those logs didn't end up anywhere local.  He only cut the veneer butts off and left the rest of the tree.

After the tree is gone, you will never be able to connect the cutter to theft without any proof.

There are also guys who drive around state lands with their tri-axle.  Nice trees next to the road usually get snipped pretty quick.  The state knows who it is, they just can't catch him.

I used to do some work for a company who would buy as little as a single log off a pickup. This practice apparently attracted jerks who stole trees. I've seen both state foresters and state police walking around their logpiles with a slice off a stump. The logs were numbered so, if rings matched, the company ID'd the supplier.

FL,

Attach one of these to your driveway and catch the Lil buggers on camera.

It is a RF camera and can be hooked to PC or VCR to record the video.

Jason, that looks like a sweet deal. Only problem is, my shop is 300+ feet from the house, and the cam only transmits 100 feet. Any ideas how I could extend the range without resorting to extraordinary means?  I suppose I could mount a vcr in the shop and bury 300+ feet of coax to a tv in the house, but that falls under the category of the above mentioned "extraordinary means."  :-/

There are a few other companies that sell longer range transmitters but they cost more $$$$.

northern tool Note:Please read the Forestry Forum's postion on this company has one in he latest catalog for $150. Not as cheap as X10 but it does claim a 300' range, and is 2.4 GHz and color. Just remember that most of these wireless have their range rated on a  line of site basis. They will go through walls and stuff, but it will cut a little bit out of the range. If your shop is 300' out, you may be a little bit short on range.

$150 is cheap when you are looking at $1500 cameras.
Good point about the camera getting stolen, but atleast you would have a close up of the thief. ;)
I bet "the Gang" is more fun then the camera anyways. ;D

That's just one of the many reasons I don't steal stuff. Murphy is my shadow. ???  If I stole something, and went to sell it, I guaranDanGtee the buyer would be the guy I stole it from, and would have his name in a hidden place.  :-/

  Jason, guess what ??? ??? I got the whole schmear from X-10. It's JUNK !!!!!!!!!!
 One camera got so hot, it nearly set the wall socket it was plugged into, on fire. The base station, that sat on the TV, leaked some kinda goop all over the place.  The VCR converter thingy NEVER DID work right. It would show the images on a small TV, but, never would record.
 Got the new replacements in. Just gotta figger how to thief-proof 'em before puttin them on.
 If ya wanna see how easy it is to steal whole tail lights, go to any GM pickup, and open the tail gate and you will find 2 screws that hold the assembly in place.  
 For now, I'm gonna Epoxy some blocks of wood between the metal rods that lock down the hard cover and the inside of the hard cover. When they stole the lights, the rods were bent up, in a curve, where they forced the top up. HAD to be 2 of 'em. I tried to do that myself, right after I bought the truck.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
