Who is a bigger thief? the people who stole your truck? or the City you live in, who after recovering said truck towed it to the city impound lot, and are charging me 210 dollars to reclaim it?
Sunday night thieves broke into my friends autoshop, where the truck was for some engine work. They made off with My 99 Ram 4x4 sport, plus my friends tools (around 100K) and i believe (but not sure) two 56 T-birds that were being restored for a father and son as matching cars. My truck was recovered on the south side of the city w/ no seats, and the tailgate removed. (go figure, they left the stereo)
The truck was recovered at 2 AM, yet, the criminalists in the SAPD did not see fit to make it over to the lot until 2PM, so the paperwork for evidence collection was not filed today, which means, i can't have my truck back. Because of the city's inability to be efficient, I now owe another 105.98 For a second day of storage. Yay.
I am still trying to wrap my head around how the victim ends up paying for this. this is absolutely ridiculous, I understand charging a fee for someone who has excessive tickets or let their registration lapse, but because my car was stolen? that is just WRONG.. I am more angry at the city than I am at the people who stole my truck. I think I am going to be at the next city council meeting.
