So yesterday, we had 5-6 (accounts vary even from our own security staff) get vandalized in the company parking lot. Today we have a truck stolen from the parking lot. I just happened to be coming back into the office when I noticed him driving crazy and thought it was my friend. It was his truck, but not him driving it. that's when I noticed the broken extended cab window and gave chase. Guy outran me and I didn't have my gun because last month my car got broken into in the parking lot. Three months ago they stole a C5 Corvette by putting it on a flatbed. And our security guys are left sitting there with their thumbs up their asses.l

It's apparently happenning all over Irving now. I sure wish they'd catch the fuckers, because they're getting worse.

Had my cellphone, but didn't know for sure if it was a stolen car or one that was vandalized the day before. Finally got in touch with my buddy and he walked to the lot to confirm it was his truck. They recovered it yesterday at 4:00 PM in South Dallas, completely gutted and sitting on cinder blocks. Wheels/tires, and all the interior was gone. The guy had just gotten it out of the shop at 6pm on Monday, drove it to work Tuesday, and on Wednesday it's back in the shop.

Today we've got guys patrolling the parking lot.

Los Colinas = The Hills, I remember it well.

Honda used to have a training center there until the new one was built on 183 I think. I made many trips up that way years ago. My cousin works in the medical profession somewhere around there, and was telling me about the recent crime spree.

Is 'Cowboys' BBQ still open, or is it a Korean grocery now ?

What's so amazing is how bad it's gotten so quickly. We're right across the street from an Irving PD station, and the burglars don't care. They've been hitting all the big businesses around the area as well.

We had a couple of cops around today as well as our own security people patrolling. The theives will just slack off until they stop patrolling again. Shit like this makes me want to get up on the rooftop with a rifle. I cannot stand thieves.
