    Anyone with information on his, the chop shop owners whereabouts, I'm gonna make a wild guess and say south.

    Wouldn't that be something, if they did!
  8. That was my biggest concern when I bought my used 20' trailer to haul my Mysterion clone. Read that 30% of trailers in the US are broken into or stolen every year. Then I went to YouTube and saw many videos showing how easy it is to defeat every commercial trailer security device. Thus I made my own security devices.

    There's a helluva lot of rural desert real estate in California. I'm sure there's all kinds of stuff going on out there uncaught unless someone provides a solid tip. This doesn't surprise me at all.

    But you also advertised what was in the trailer. That seems like a invitation for trouble to me.

  12. Paint silliness on it. Point is make it stand out like a sore thumb so it is un-hideable. Even paint something on the roof so planes can identify it. Doubt a thief would want to try to fence a Mysterion and all the fence-able parts are messed up making them not useable on snything but a Mysterion.

    As mentioned, if they want it, they take it, all we are doing is making it irritating for them to do so.

    The Phelan area of the San Bernardino high desert has always been home to all sorts of criminal activity. I don't know if your trailer was a flatbed or enclosed but if it was enclosed I'm surprised that they hadn't use it to cook meth in. Enclosed/toyhauler trailers are stolen and used for a mobile meth lab in the middle of no where and then abandoned when the cook is done. Of course the trailer is now trashed/contaminated along with the surrounding desert with all the toxic chemicals dumped on the ground. Glad you and other owners got your stuff back.
  14. "In November of 2017, the suspect and his wife Joselyn Gutierrez were arrested for operating a chop shop out of their home in the 11400 boock of Shaphaptian Avenue in Hesperia. Alberto plead not guilty to Buying/Receiving Stolen Property and his case was dismissed" (ie; California) .....Oh come on...well he said he didn't know who put all those stolen vehicles on his property...well then all we can do is take his word for it & turn him loose....
  15. You have to live in California to really appreciate the laws. They are letting guys out of jail so the virus doesn't spread but threaten to put you in jail if you get caught socializing. Land of fruits and nuts.
  16. Many of the plain white or plain black trailers that are stolen are then turned into "Mobile Meth Labs"

    A lot of those meth heads dump the cars off in the woods, just to have the empty trailers!

    Mine is custom painted & when not in use is always stored inside my shop. Also during customers transports, I sleep in the truck , so nobody bothers anything.

    God Bless & Happy Easter!

    Is it a good idea to write on the side of the trailer what's inside?

    32 stolen vehicles on the property. Pretty bold. Makes you wonder how many more vehicles had been previously stolen by the ring.
