Hauled Nana's crap from her apartment yesterday. Windy as hell so I was getting around 11 mpg towing her crap. Luckily it didn't cost her a dime.
Nana lives about 90 miles away and her storage place is owned by her brother and is another 60 miles. I argued that it would be cheaper to rent one in the town she lives in but it was already past noon on Saturday so we couldn't find a storage place with the office still open. I was just ready to mover her **** and be done with it. When we got to the apartment someone had put a note on the door.
Now the mother of the hoodlums that robbed her had spent hours threatening us all the night before. The cops finally took her in but her room mate, boy friend, ex-con bailed her right out along with the kids. Seems they wanted us to know that they were still around. As we started loading stuff up the crew rolled in. Had to put someone on guard duty with the trailer.
Soon cars were coming and going at the neighbors place, each getting loaded with things in bags and covered in sheets or blankets. Since the cops said they couldn't get a warrant to search their apartment I'm guessing they were moving the stolen stuff from all over the surrounding neighborhoods out. The only stolen things the cops found were in the abandon side of their duplex. The kids were taken in for trespassing in the abandon unit but will probably never be charged with the theft.
The gangstas had their own little group stay outside playing some of the most vile rap songs they could find and yelling crap like "rednecks" "white trailer trash" and yes..."honkies" at us the whole time.
The side of the duplex in the picture is the abandon one.
After a while a truck pulled up and a 6'4" coverall clad gentleman stepped out to great us. He owned one of the duplexes that was robbed (the one in the background of the above picture) and his daughter lived in one side. He looked like the one guy at the bar that you knew to stay the hell away from if a fight started 'cause he has no qualms about going to jail. This was the second time his daughters place was broken into but the first time that he knew who did it. I envision some interesting things happening in the near future.
What all didn't get packed up and moved was put in the garage but as I told the M-I-L, they don't want to steal any more of your ****, they will just bust in and destroy the place.
