The Break-in Boys are back!

Recommended Posts

I heard that fish houses on Silver Lake near Hawley were broken into over the past few days. Those kind of guys make me sick.

Some house had the doors broken and windows broken and I guess they made a mess... Makes me SICK. These kids just don;t know right from wrong and have nothing better to do.

I have some ideas on what to do with them but we have too many of our Law Enforcement friends on the site to go into great detail ... ;\)

Those guys just P!%$$## me off.

Watch your house and your buddies houses closely.

they have no respect for anyones property,they schould have to pick up trash in the ditches,when its about a 100 degrees,then pay for damages and also fix what they destroy.maybe they would leave houses alone.Its the biggest reason i dont have a wheel house.Our laws protect the criminals seems to me,well time to cool off,i had to vent!

Hey --

A call out to you LE guys -- Cliffy Perch Dragon --

Do you guys ever catch these D@O$RK$? I know it has to be nearly impossible -- but if you have what do they do to them? Next to nothing?

I was thinking that I should get a trail camera and put it up in the tree that is on shore about 25 yds from my house. Maybe a guy could get a license plate off of a vehicle or something if they tried it.

That's a pretty good idea actually, I wish I had one to put up.

The camera would flash and they would steal that too, I was a victim about 5 years ago, no question about the back alley tactics Hitman, that is what they deserve. I had my house locked and they pried and ripped open the door, I guess they were mad when there was nothing to steal, so they took my spud bar and busted the window out and then put the bar thru the wall about 5 times, real nice! I have since not locked my house and this has worked, the worst I have had was that they actually fished in it and did not close the door when they left. Born in the barn I guess.

I was broken into as well about 5 years ago. They basically pulled my door of with a vehicle wrecking my house. The local paper had reports of melisa being hit pretty hard. I talked to a guy on sallie last night that said some guys were actually driving pickups through older wooden fish houses. That seems tough to believe but you never know. It is indeed a sick feeling when your stuff is messed with..

Just home on a quick lunch break so I will give you the short version:

We don't get many "break in to fish house" calls in the city of Moorhead \:\/\:\/ . Just given ya a hard time....but I understand what you are saying.

Yes, sometimes we get lucky and catch people in the act of breaking into cars, homes, garages..etc. The vast majority of time this is only accomplished with the help of the public. Neighbors looking out for each other is a big factor. Its pretty much just plain old luck if we happen to just come across it on our own...it does happen...but not that much. As I stated above, its very important to get to know your neighbors and having that extra set of eyes on your side. Also, don't be afraid to call LE if you happen to see something that looks somewhat suspicious. Sometimes people don't call us because they don't want to get involved or they think we might think its nothing and they don't want to waste our time. Its NOT A WASTE! Nine times out of ten it might be nothing but that one time can break the case wide open. Please get involved and make the call. We don't mind checking things out......its what we get paid to do!

Another thing you can do to help us in LE is to write down all the serial numbers belonging to your valuables. If the item does not have a number, perhaps put some sort of ID on it..using a permanent pen or scribing tool. Keep a record of these numbers and items handy just in case you become a victim. Its really hard for us to put a whacking to someone if we cant prove the items they have in their possession are stolen.

What happens to them at court is up to a lot of different factors. The crime, the value of the objects stolen or damaged, criminal history..etc. To be honest, property crimes don't really generate much in the way of jail/prison time. Sad, but true.

Gotta get back to work

Take care

Cliffy

Hit, I agree, and Charlie, I to being the reasons for not having a wheeled house. Cliffy, again your right on. real Cops like us dont mind investigating complaints and or getting tips on stuff. We've all caught people in the act of crime. Just the look on their face is worth getting gassed, tased, and pepper sprayed. Unfortunately, llke cliffy said, the turd prob wouldnt get much.

I would venture to say if someone broke into a fish house, stole $500 worth of stuff, and caused a lot of damage. With no prior history, you would get your stuff replaced (maybe) and he would get a fine less than $1000. Oh and then, the turd would get 2 years of proabation, which means nothing. If the sentencing were to go by the book, then these guys would see jail time and fines, but, it never or seldom happens. If their found guilty, that means the cops put together a good case, its up to a judge to determine sentencing.

As Cliffy said, if you see something that is not right, call it in. Some of the biggest cases are solved from a bunch of small leads put toghther. the Perch

Yeah --

Great way to explain stuff -- thanks Perch and Cliffy.

So some people are driving through fish houses. Man that is really sick. I wish we could catch these buggers.

The only lake I have been broken into (knock on wood) is Lee Lake by Hawley. They seem to hit that lake every year so I have not gone back.

As to the deer camera -- good idea -- some of the cameras don't use a flash so it would work, I would guess.

A buddy of mine, who i will not name, leaves all of his stuff in his house. All of it. The guy is nuts. Just waiting to be broken into I guess.

I know personally I have never even had a door on my house with a LOCK on it. It generally gets damaged more when there is a lock. They tend to break everything getting in then anyway. I also dont keep anything in my house and have the windows accessable so they can see there is nothing in there. And yes I need to get out and put a pad lock on my wheeled house's hitch, IF its still there that is..... I would love to catch someone breaking into a house. Perferably off duty when I can do much funner things to them. haha

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!
    • mdogdaddy
      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.    
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck
    • huntnfish
      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
