Just to let you know I've been warned about you from all over town. If I catch you or your affiliates messing in my trash so you can resell it after you steal it, bet your bottom boots I will be calling the police and pressing charges. Note to self I watch everything that goes on around my home during all hours of the night and day. I frequently watch out my windows and my dog keeps me informed too. Also I've been warned about you pilfering in others vehicles and stealing too. Good luck on your stealing adventure now that your publicly put out there. Who would want HOT items that you resell anyway. Btw fix your house its an eyesore!

These people have been stealing and re-selling for over 20 years that I know of. If they are only stealing from your trash you are lucky. I feel pretty certain they are responsible for breaking into my elderly grandmothers home while she slept. The whole clan of them have been stealing from trash, cars, homes and businesses for so long I am sure they have no plans to stop no matter what kind of threats they receive. Unfortunately, I doubt they will be reading this thread as that would require the ability to use a computer and read. I cannot imagine that they haven't been reported to the police on numerous occasions but nothing has been done to stop them.

And whats funny is I don't see many ppl purchase anything. They have left stuff out for days. Even a usedmatress...really??? How disgusting! These ppl do not use for themselves I am almost convinced. I've also asked around....its illegal to steal or pilfer through anothers trash or personal belongings on someones property. I don't tolerate ppl of the kind. Its the principal of the matter and nobody deserves to be a victim. Also I have heard they have brought in clans of ppl when going to yardsales and one distracts while the other takes items. Really somebody needs to do something and I would if I caught them in the act no doubt.

I live a couple of blocks north of her and I haven't had any problems with her or anyone else stealing from my cars and or property and I'll tell you why! I USE THE LOCKS THAT CAME WITH MY DOORS!! As far as the trash, I don't want it anymore! I'd rather see someone take it and use it, rather than It go to the dump! You should be on here saying how thankful you are for not having to live the meek existence these people have to endure! If you put as much effort into helping these people as you are running them down they might not have to dig in your precious trash!!! I'm not a religious person but there's a quote I like from a priest named John Bradford he said "There but for the grace of God, go I!"!

No shit Sherlock I utilize those things called locks but some ppl do NOT. Its called a warning and what you prefer to happen to your trash is your business but that does not necessarily mean everyone else should agree.

Its illegal if they haven't asked for permission. I know because I spoke with someone that dealt with the zoning comittee. Its jerks like me that this world needs to make things right instead of allowing wrong to continue.

Not true. It's a city ordinance that they can't go through the trash.

Not, true, I filed a complaint on her. I was told as long as the trash is sitting on YOUR property, its illegal. They have to have your permission!

Who gives A SHIAT!!!! it's f u cking trash. For real. If you have put it out by the road, apparently you don't want it. Give the people a break. As long as they not stealing from your yard, house... it shouldn't matter. Your throwing the shit away anyhow. It's stuck up people like yourself. My gosh.

I was told by the local oficer I called THEY could dig thru my trash BUT I had cleaned out a gragre for an elderly Lady and had boxes and they scattered the crap all over my yard and left it- so I had to clen it all up, rebox it- minus the TREASURES they put in their rummage sale. IF U come in my yard and touch anything- even my garbage, I will consider it a threat on my life- take it for what u want but stay out of my yard and my garbage.

Scumbag pieces of shit, I wish they could find their way back to Chitcago. If i caught them in my yard i would pepper them with rock salt and a 20 gauge. Non-lethal ammo for the win.

However, you forgot that 25 foot from the centerline of the road is considered public property...Even in the town of Benton.....But what I am having trouble understanding is if you are throwing it in the garbage why do you care if someone else is getting it??? You didn't want it so therefore you would rather it go to the dump (and add to a pile that can be recycled) or would you rather see someone either fix it or clean it up and either use it or sell it for something they need??? Where do you think most of your household items come from anyway??? They are not brand new, they are from recycled items that come from trash. Just sayin

If they would only take the unwanted garbage that is set out it would be one thing..but they'll come in your yard, sheds, garage and wouldn't surprise me a house!!! I say this knowing it's a fact!!!! They got my husband and I a few months ago and I can assure you the items taken were not trash! I watched her daughter pull out of my driveway with her vehicle loaded down. I did contact the police and have heard absolutely nothing about it!!

I don't care if they take what I have out for garbage. It is when they statues from my yard that upsets me. They have a shop on East main Street now. The police told me if I find the stuff that was taken to call them and not try to confront them.

If I wanted someone to steal shit that I can sell myself I'd sell it my damn self so it couldn't be stolen. Its the principal of the matter as I said before. Like I said before nobody has to agree with what I feel. Your view is your view, but I know what is right and I'm standing up for what is right.

This is true he is on the sex offender web site. It's the son of the lady who drives the truck. If I'm not mistaken it was for child pornography and maybe one other offense!!! They are a scary bunch.
