The sad thing is HOME OWNERS work so hard for what they have ! If you file an insurance claim you have to pay a deductible. Which most of the time it doesn't cover the cost to replace the stolen goods.. If he is driving a truck then he should be looking for a real job. STAY OUT OF OUR YARDS !!!

I wonder if the New Metal Task Force created by BC Police will find the patio furniture? Sounds like the dude stole the furniture for the metal.

Reminds me of the time when I was a kid, and a bunch of friends and I had the bright idea of going out during the night and rearranging some of the neighbors' porch furniture. We didn't steal anything...we took chairs, small tables, decor from one person's porch, and put them on another a couple of doors down, vice versa. We hit several houses. (What can I say? Kids were and will be kids.)
