Exclamation Be on HIGH ALERT for Stolen Boxster Property in California, with "MUST SEE VIDEO"!!

Dear Forum,

A set of 19" wheels were stolen from my home in Downey Ca. near Los Angeles. The wheels are nineteen inch in diameter, 8.5 and 10" widths with polished centers and lips. Included were chrome center caps with painted crests. The wheels are true 3 piece mesh design much like the HRE 540's.

If the wheels are purchased by a member, by all means their yours to keep. However, I want the person or persons responsible for the stolen property.

As a reward I will include a brand new set of chrome lug nuts for your "new" wheels.

This is the fourth break-in I've had in 2 years. I want to catch these thiefs and put an end to this. I have lost a lot of hard earned, meaningful, irreplaceable items through out this time.

Please contact me with any information.

Best,

Jr.

That is awful. Sounds like someone has you pegged. After 4 break-ins I would be sitting out there with a pit bull AND a 12 guage Remmington 1100 (with heavy game load). Seriously, you should consider an alarm system even if only for your garage. If you already have one in your house you should have the coverage extended to include your garage. Here is a link for a company that sells alarm systems hat you can install yourself. The wireless ones are a bit more but super easy to install.

No one was hurt? That's the most important thing! Sorry to hear...will certainly keep an eye out.

But, I would have to agree with der Geist on this one. You might want to invest in an alarm, especially since these guys (if they were the same ones each time, which may be the case) have learned that they can get away with it. If you add an alarm or a "pseudo alarm" it would certainly make them think twice. The "pseudo alarm" is operated by batteries and is sold in your local hardware store (Walmart sells them too) for approximately $20 bucks for 4. They are about 4-5 inches in length and maybe 2-3 inches in width. They have two parts to them-- both held onto the door/ window by 3M tape. Basically, you have to align the two pieces; one to a stationary / fixed part of the window / door and the other to the moving part. Once the sensor detects that the alignment has been removed by the opening of the door/window a high pitched siren goes off ---- this may help to deter those SOBs that have no respect for other people's property.

Anyway, as I said before, I will keep an eye out, but IMHO definitely start with Blinkwatt's suggestion as to where to look. If they are petty thieves just trying to make a quick buck they may not be smart enough to realize that you would be looking on those sites.

Well, good luck in finding those !*#&@^#@!!! and your wheels!!

hello,

no pictures at this time. they are very similar to yours (porsche986Spyder) except they are two step lip and all polished probably a porsche upgrade. the wheel were lightly used and were purchase on ebay a year ago. but i figured i use up the tires on stocks and then purchase new tires for 19's which was going to be real soon. oh well. i dont have an alarm but each time i thought it was the last. im an easy target being i live alone in a quiet residential neighborhood, may you saw me on the judge joe brown show. by the way its my neighbor ripping me off cause i caught them once but i couldnt prove it the other 3 times. here is the link to video. enjoy. click wed. then "take a brief look".

Dude, it seems like everyones trying or have stolen from you. Do you have a giant sign saying "Come in and help yourself to whatever you want inside the house"? It's strange that you've been burglarized so many times.
