We have a Crack-Head problem in the industrial area where we park our trucks and we are moving down the street to a new yard that we will fence in and secure ourselves.
We have 3 10-Ton (a.k.a. 6 Wheeler) dump trucks, 2 tractor trailers, 2 Dump Trailers, and a shed about the size of the dump box on the dump trucks.
The Shed has heavy steel bars across the door with locks said to be "Crackhead Proof" when we purchased them from the ACE Hardware.
Homeless, drug addicted, or just thieving people roam the neighborhood at night breaking in to anything they can find and going as far as to just cause mindless destruction of they break in somewhere and don’t find anything to steal.
I’m in Chicago so it isn’t as if we can find another place to move to that doesn’t have thieving scum, the city is just crawling with them and small business owners city wide complain about the 11% sales tax topped off with the "Crackhead Tax" we all must pay.
I am going to put razor wire along the chain link fence and I’m going to try and put motion detection flood lights in each corner.
We will have a heavy chain and heavy padlock across the single gate.
I am thinking about putting one of those fake security camera bubbles over the door to the shed… It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t work because even with video footage of the people trying to break in to our stuff, it isn’t as if the cops will ever find the person… They fade in to the streets like roaches in a kitchen when you turn on the lights.
Can anyone think of anything else we should do to keep the crackheads out of our new parking space?
We thought about getting a dog but the security dogs in the area keep getting shot by the crackheads and we don’t want a dog to die in our yard… Not to mention that it would most likely get out and run off before it got shot… LOL
