    Lost hills CA. Rented a motel next to the truck stop there. Came out next morning a they had sucked every last drop of fuel out of both tanks and broke into my head ache rack and stole all the chains and binders. All on a busy well lit road next to a very busy truck stop. Happened to another one of our guys a couple weeks later.

    Flatbeder told me one time he parked next to a old cab over , that had a team . Got out to go eat and the driver of the cab over got out the same time , said Hi and started up a conversation , so they ordered a cup of Joe together and while waiting for it ( couple of minutes ) he got one of those feelings , got up and walked back to his truck . The other part of the cab over team had a hose with a 12v pump and already sucked out 60 gallons, into there side tank . .............................................................................................................
