Catching the guy who stole 20 things from me.

  • Published on Dec 20, 2021 veröffentlicht
  • We all make mistakes, but for your own sake. Please stop stealing from me. I will catch you every time and you will personally help load my stuff back up. As for this case we’ve resolved the matter and I’d appreciate if everyone respects them as we all make mistakes. And dude… please take your wife out to dinner. She deserves it.

      I had dozens of treestands and hundreds of steps taken from my property, and I was 99% sure I knew who the guy was. But there was no way to get evidence in the early 80’s. I even thought of putting razor blade’s on the top steps to get his body as evidence. Lol. But I couldn’t do it. Wasn’t worth killing the guy.

      Lol the WHOLE DAMN TOWN now knows this guy is a stealing thief. His reputation is now gone, and his boss will see this. He gonna get his punishment much more now. He probably has to sell his house and move to another place find another job. Even though he has been easy on the guy, this guy is now done for. Really. Small villages like that the story goes around REAL QUICK.

      @ZiosZestyMemes perhaps so (I wouldn't be surprised frankly!) but you don't actually know that. I hate that sentence "only sorry because they were caught" because it is NOT always true when used to refer to someone, and you have no way of knowing for sure, matter how much you or anyone else says otherwise!

      In many cases that’s true. In theft, they will not charge him if the victim refuses. It’s totally up to the victim. If it’s grand theft auto, maybe it’s different.

    Cody shows his true/good character across most of his videos, some more subtle than others, but this one was very revealing. Not pressing charges was great, but handing back the money and hearing her emotion was...damn. I know others have commented that this dude was not genuinely sorry and is perhaps a serial thief, but Cody's move to not judge him says a lot. This video had me glued more so than even the MonsterMax ones.

    Bro I didn't think that highly of you before as I only see a lot of stupid content from you lol but I commend you for handling that the way you did. Stayed calm and collected and even offered to not take the money (maybe it was only some, maybe you only accepted a little who knows. Doesn't matter anyhow) as you could see the distraught in his wife's eyes and I respect that in you a lot.
    This whole situation doesn't add up though.. usually thief's are in bad spots with no money or a bad drug addiction and this guy didn't seem to have any of those issues. Even had a nice home, decent cars, and a loving wife. That is not your typical thief AT ALL. Just doesn't make sense at all for an older gentlemen like that with all those possessions willing to risk it all just to steal some shit that ain't worth the most a couple grand.
    Also you must have wonderful law enforcement as I have never seen a warrant appear that fast ever in my life. Maybe they knew you would post this and make everyone think real highly of them with fast service like this?
    Anyhow glad you got it sorted.

      @Stormone how so, their job is making sure no one steals, and if someone steals something from someone, their job is to find whats stolen and give it back. pressing charges is for the person who someone stole from. In my case if I had the money I wouldn't ask for money for the camera's. If I hadn't I'd defo ask for it. But my mans got humiliated, this has been proven time and time again that counceling, is way more effective than jailtime, my mans got his punishement I doubt he will ever steal again.

That’s yet another example that there’re still rural sheriffs, and DAs that give a crap about policing their community. Great video! A perfect way to start my day. Ps, loved your cameo on demo ranch! I’m glad you got your stuff back.

    I’ve been robbed before. It was petty shit, my computer and PlayStation. It was clear they just went and got in and out. A bunch of robberies happened around thanksgiving in a college town so said fuck it, sunk cost, and had insurance to get it all back brand new.
    What you did was honestly genuinely a great moment in humanity. That wife must be so, so pissed. The area looks like my home town and we leave our cars running knowing your just fine. Giving the cash back was classy as fuck, and really the ultimate fuck you moment.

      Yep. Had a cookout at my house once and had a bunch of my jewelry stolen, including my grandmother’s engagement ring. It was even worse knowing it was someone that was an invited guest. Took three months, but I did end up getting most of it back. The sad thing is, I got it back from the thief’s son. He was friends with my son. Overheard my neighbor and I talking about what was taken, had a lightbulb moment. Realized his mom, all of a sudden, had several pieces of nice jewelry he had never seen. Basically, stole it back. She was dating a friend of ours, which is why she was there. We talked to him, and he was floored. He let her know that we knew. Never even bothered trying to apologize. I’m not anywhere near wealthy, but I have some very nice jewelry. All of it has sentimental value to me. Every bit of it.

      I had my car broken into before.
      Stole some stuff, only real value was an iPod touch
      I reported stolen via serial number.
      It was locked, so no use to anyone without a passcode, and seems the person tried to recycle it instead for a few bucks. Of course to recycle they take a photo ID, and the company also reports the serial #s, looking for stolen goods.
      Got a call from the police a few months later saying they had my iPod, and asked if I wanted to press charges.
      Yes please.
      Hope they enjoy their criminal record.

    Well played, young diesel man. Giving him the money was a truly selfless act. I estimate you made a more positive impact on your neighbor than any legal process ever could.

    18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

      @DeadPhishCheeseSpread _ The guy was embarrassed he got caught. Giving the man the money back showed that Cody was the bigger person and how much of a pos the guy was. Doing that in front of his wife only further hones in that point. He's been exposed for the kleptomaniac he is and his wife isn't about to forget anytime soon.
      Another way of thinking about this is that it's not always about the money, it's about sending a message.

    • Dabby Dabs
      Dabby Dabs 15 days ago

      The police response was only quick because this guy took proactive action. If he had just phoned it in from his rocking chair, he'd still be waiting for justice. The police got the warrant so quickly because, like he said in his video, he did all their hard work for them and they had eyes on the stolen property and definitive video evidence proving that guy was a thief. Their job description mentions nothing about protecting and serving. The phrase "to protect and serve" originated in Boston way before the thugs and their rich mafia crime bosses came and shot up the streets and bought police departments. They used to protect and serve, not because it was their job, but because they wanted to help people by doing good things, and they had the power to do so. Someone came up with that slogan, and because it applied back then, they put it on their cars. Other departments decided it was a cute slogan with a positive ring to it so they put it on their cars too. If you check out their job description "to protect and serve" isn't listed. It used to mean something; now its just some bullshit they paint on their vehicles. Their real job is to "protect" property (which is what they're doing here) and serve capital (not capitol). I realize that isnt written into their job description either, its just what they've devolved into. I'm not asking anyone to just take my word for it. Show up to ANY picket line where there's honest, tax paying, law abiding workers on strike and see for yourself who the police are there to "protect and serve". Spoiler Alert!: They don't show up to protect the hard working tax payer whose only crime is wanting a fair paycheck in exchange for an honest day's work. Or, god forbid, some workplace safety. Rather, they protect and serve the fat lazy guy on top who's cutting corners, cheating taxes, writing off expensive dinners and vacations, cutting out hours already worked by people (stealing). I have yet to see a single picket line where police are there to protect the common man or woman from illegal hazardous working conditions, stolen wages, or any of the myriad crimes the employers commit to save a quick buck at the expense of working people. I know this isn't a rant you'd expect from a business owner, but here it is. If this guy hadn't done 90% of their job for them AND been sitting in the thief's driveway. It probably would have taken 3 months for a detective to show up without a warrant and do nothing just like what happened to my friend when she reported a theft. 3 months later the guy was long done squatting at her neighbors house and the stolen work trailer was stripped bare and sold to the local scrap dealer. If only she'd done 90% of their job like this guy!🤣 Sorry for the long rant! I hope all is well!😃

      @Bad Drivers Of The NorCal Area It still time wasted for a guy who will get probations for his first offence. And really its not planned lol its not like he broke into someones house at night and scoped the place out and made this big plan lol. Hiding your tracks is not the same as planning But regardless that's besides the point.
      My point is if he wasn't a habitual criminal hes going to bet let off easy so there is really no point wasting your time with pressing charges. But like I said if this were me I would of asked the officer about his criminal record and would make a decision based off if he had a history of stealing. If this wasn't his first time then yeah he would be spending probably a month and maybe 6 if he has a long criminal history. But a 60 year old man with a wife and decent property? Yeah hes not a habitual criminal lol

    • Bad Drivers Of The NorCal Area

      @Mcgee "First off it wasn't planned he obviously saw WD had stuff laying around in plain view on there property so he took off his plate and spray painted the cameras to try and not get caught"
      That is the definition of planned. He saw an opportunity and did not immediately take it. He stopped, prepared, made a game plan, and executed it. That is a plan.
      "Then you just wasted 4 hours or more of your life driving down to the police station to write a report." You dont have to drive to a station to give a report, and it does not take 4 hours. Not for most people.

    • Mcgee

      ​@Bad Drivers Of The NorCal Area First off it wasn't planned he obviously saw WD had stuff laying around in plain view on there property so he took off his plate and spray painted the cameras to try and not get caught. 100% opportunistic thief. So I dont think its a habitual thing.
      What I do think is that hes a POS jealous old man who admitted to knowing WD and watches his videos. I think it was some parts jealousy and some parts opportunistic that made him think he could get away with stealing, because if you think about it he didn't real steal his stuff for the value. He even admitted so and said hes not in any financial troubles and he has a decent size property. I mean I could be wrong and if this happend to me I would ask the detectives if he has a criminal record, if he does then fuck him, let him go to jail. If he doesn't have a criminals record and you press charges more than likely hes going to bail out and will probably get probation and what maybe a week in jail max if hes very unlucky? Then you just wasted 4 hours or more of your life driving down to the police station to write a report.

      @Bad Drivers Of The NorCal Area If this guy doesn't even have a record then more than likely he will spend 12 hours in a cell, bail out, then get community service and probation. So really what is jail going to accomplish? Lol sometimes showing leneancy to people helps them turn things around. People who are habitual offenders tho are not deserving of leanancy.

But he went from looking and sounding like a guilty puppy, to looking like someone who knows they really fucked up.

      @Lunchbox Grenade you and a lot of others here don't understand that forgiveness is not always about the other person. The *weight* of anger and frustration being lifted off your shoulders is liberating. You free yourself from negativity and emotional hardship when you can forgive someone that has wronged you. Forgiveness does not mean you take someone back or become buddy buddy with them, just that you have let go and moved on.

      I’ve known people like this, and just when I thought the sweet wife is the kind and innocent one and the barking devil of a man is the sinner, it was actually the wife who was the brains of all the evil. Sometimes, the husband does the “dirty work” while the wife sits back and gets all the benefit while looking pure as can be. Looks can be very deceiving sometimes.

    You were so gracious in not excepting the money. What a a well raised man you are.
    I'm from Australia 🇦🇺, and I really appreciate men like all of you , who sorted this out , without anger without violence.
    I was nearly murdered 6 years ago by a guy I had just started dating, in facts it's googleable, was on Australian Tv A current Affair . So I can be very wary of all men, after receiving Traumatic Brain injury , partial deafness , loss of thyroid from being strangled, eye sight issues , I have a lot to be scared of. I really want to be role model myself on how to come back from this kind of thing to other woman . And your actions and behaviour show me and other woman that there are strong beautiful men out that can solve their problems without violence , and with empathy and graciousness! I believe this is how to help not only woman but also to change the culture of men into something positive.
    I appreciate and respected your demeanour throughout this !!
    You show other men how they should behave and react to bad situations. Keep paying this kind of behaviour fwd , this is how we will change the negative culture in some men. ( you know monkey see monkey do .. ) no offence ..
    Following you on everything now !!
    What a beautiful soul you are xx

      This is an overused line that is often untrue.

I would wager most people actually do feel sorry for the act and not just for getting caught.
