Someone Stole Gas From My Truck In My Driveway

There’s no better way to feel violated than to have someone steal something of yours from your own home. Even if it’s a few gallons of gas.

This morning I walked out to my truck to when leaving for work and saw my gas door and cap off of my truck. My first thought was “that’s not suppose to be like that”. Then I started to realize that someone stole the gas and I started to panic a little while I wondered what else they did, did they try to break into my house too?

The snow we had the night before was a big help since they left tire and foot tracks all over and it was easy to determine exactly where they had been. Thankfully all they did was take gas and they didn’t take much as a gas can only holds a few gallons of gas. They even left marks in the snow from the hose and the gas can.

It was suggested on Twitter that I check if they drilled my tank, which happened a few months ago in Rio Rancho. Thankfully they did not drill a hole in my tank.

Finally, I used the Rio Rancho Police Department’s online crime reporting form and left for work. In case the perpetrators are reading this, I have made some security related updates in case of a next time.

  1. I recall having my stereo stolen from my 1971 Chevy Pickup when I was 24, and when they stole a case of beer I had under the seat of the same pickup when I was working out at Tom Young’s Health Club. Another time they broke my window in New Orleans when I was attending a Mardi Gras parade. In each instance you feel so violated. They didn’t work for the items, they just took mine instead. What a drag!
