A few nights ago my 12ft inflatable motor boat was stolen from my locked yard at night, while I was asleep at home upstairs 80yds away. I live in a semi-rural area and the yard is surrounded by thick bush. The 6ft wire mesh fence was bent at the top where the guys must have lifted it over and and carried some 200yds to the nearest transport. It would have taken at least 2 strong guys.
I remember my german shepherd barking loudly through my sleep, but hes not aggressive so would have been loud, but stood back.
If Id gotten up to check the noise, Id have seen the event taking place. Cant help helping what the right course of action would have been after grapping my HK P2000 from the safe.
Shout out some choice words and fire a warning shot? Most petty crims would at that point crap their pants drop everything and run, never coming back. Agree?
