Stolen Jeep Cherokee

Well I came home from fishing last night, parked my 95 Cherokee in the driveway, took most of my fly fishing gear out of the vehicle and put it in the garage. Go to bed, wake up in the morning, go to the garage, open the garage door and low and behold my Jeep isn't where I parked it last night. Actually I don't see it anywhere, gone, poof, disappearing act. Call the cops, their computers are down. Don't have a license number even. Go to registries, get license number, file police report, and wait, wait, wait.

 

The stupid thing about it all? I knew that mid 90's Cherokees had a high vehicle theft rate in Edmonton and I had a anti theft steering wheel lock. Well stupid me, no I didn't use it last night. If I had, I'm sure it would have been there this morning.

 

So the moral of the story is? Lock it and protect it. I have used my steering wheel lock everywhere except the occasional time at home. This theft was scoped out well in my opinion, so don't let the crooks out there get your stuff.

 

 

This is a vehicle description.

1995 Grand Cherokee Laredo

White in color.

Smashed in running boards.

Smells like fish.

Very similar to this picture.

Stolen from Castledowns area North Edmonton June 15-16

License # DKA 839

Well they caught the punk. He is apparently and 18 or 19 year old badass. We’ll see if he lives up to his reputation when he in the big house. The guy lived a few doors down from where the pictures were taken. The neighbors heard the crash and 6 guys ran out then surrounded the little punk preventing him from leaving the yard. I’m not sure if any vigilante justice was served but I hope so.

 

The police phoned me and I went down to the scene. We did the formalities, the officer drove the Jeep out, and then the officer told me the guy blew .250. Hopefully some guy is making love to him in the Remand centre as we speak.

 

I guess I'll have to take a day off just to see what this punk gets for time, and to have a good laugh. :twisted:

Are all new vehicles sold in Canada now required to have some sort of anti-theft device that shuts the engine off when a vehicle is stolen?

I think that came in around 1998 if I am not mistaken. In this case a 1993 Dodge Shadow and a 1995 Jeep are ripe for the taking... easy peasy with a few simple tools apparently too. :( Who knew that my Dodge Shadow was #3 on the list of top 10 cars stolen in North America... until I discovered it after the fact.
