    Got stopped by the State Police on the way into our area this evening after work. One checked my ID against a dog-eared list he was carrying, and sent me on my way. I would guess that they were looking for out-of-area kin coming in to provide aid.

    Message received: they think he's still in our area.

    It's wonderful to realize that God knows what He's doing, and what lands on my plate is there because God thinks it's a good idea. And wonderful to know He's using you folks to help build me up in my ability to take care of my family. Thanks, all!

    Paymeister I had no idea this would run this long without resolution . However I will say the same .. lock your dors , have a small amount of gas in a vehicle then leave the keys . Your point is you do not want this person(s) in your SHTFEOW if you need , but get em gone . Unless and untill they threaten you or yours its the state job to capture them . You may help as you can , but imho " can " dont endanger the bride , kids , or family next door .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    Coming home from work to possibly find a fugitive in your home or on your property is strong justification to at least have a firearm in your car. Not a good feeling, and definitely you need to be "orange" in this situation.

    A couple of years ago, I came home on a winter night at about ten, and found a partol car blocking the county road a mile from my driveway. Similar to your situation, they had a fugitive in the area -- had served a search warrant and he ran. The deputy gave me a description, and let me go home. This is a very rural area, and the entire county usually has only one deputy at this hour, so there was no "perimeter" to speak of.

    I had my .45 with me, and my 5-cell MagLite, so I was fairly comfortable going up my long drive, but my alert level was definitely elevated, especially when the time came to exit. I started with a quick walk-around of the house looking for any forced entry, then entered the house and did a room-by-room sweep. I then retrieved my Mossburg 590, holtered the .45, and swept the areas around the house and toward the perimeter of the property, looking for footprints. All seemed OK, but I slept with one eye open that night and two guns within arms reach.

    Make sure you alert level is heightened each time you come home -- it is easy to become complacent and not see an open window or misplaced item that can tip you off to an intruder in your home. I even look at the tire tracks on the driveway as I come home each night. Should there be somebody in the house or on the property, I have a tactical plan that puts me in a strong position to defend myself and prevent them from leaving (one way or another ) until the Cavalry arrives.

    Stay safe.

    Last night "someone" stole a truck from a Christmas tree farm near the original search area, and the law thinks he's the one they think took it. It is a highly recognizable truck (company logo on the side, equipment on the back), so I would expect him to ditch it right away and steal something less conspicuous. But that will be a pretty clear bit of evidence that he is 'there' instead of 'here'.

    All you VA (or NC) folks: call the State Police if you see a yellow 1981 Ford flatbed with "Phillips & Turman Tree Farm" on the side of it. There may be machinery on the flatbed (a tree-digger, if you know what they look like). The license plate is TU 95159.

    Jeese, I think I would have looked a little harder for transportation. I'm sure I could have found a bicycle or something better than that!
