Yesterday I was talking to a person (name withheld for now) and this wacko told me that he has been to my home while i was gone and took photos of my house and surrounding buildings and animals that are kept outside and if that is not odd enough he told me that he and his wife often follow me around town.Working on the knowlege that he is a thief i called the sheriff's dept. they have talk to the people that live on my road and now have them looking for this person old vanand i have a meeting with the states att. in the morning they seem to think that he is casing the place to rob or he is gay (deputies words not mine) but durring our conversation he and his wife said that they were going to be at the tampa show to do all kinds of crap to me.Now my question is in this situation what would you all do?We all know that once a snake is stolen it is gone and I can't stay here all the time. thank you for any replies <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>

I am just curious, where do you live? Why don't you name this a##hole and wife? You might want to hire an attack dog for your house and one for your yard. Ask your neighbors to keep an eye on your house for you and if they see anything suspicious to pay attention to auto type, tag #, description of people. Maybe if they are aware in advance of what is going on, I guess they probably are if the police have already traveled your neighborhood, they will be able to focus on the details to be able to really help you. Have you thought of implanting your animals with microchips? Just some ideas.
Good luck. I sleep with a gun and I have a Golden Retriever that has the most ferocious bark you have ever heard. Hey quit laughing, his head must weigh 20 pounds! He looks intimidating even if he is a Golden.

Welp, there are 2 real possibilites.
1) Your state attorney is a complete moron
2) This person (aside from being strange) is a complete moron.

WHY I ask you, would the person TELL YOU he's following you around and knows where you live or has photographed your place if he's going to rob it? WHY?! That's why the State Att is a moron. If &nbsp;he does steal something, or does something, then HE is the moron. You're obviously going to have extra security on your cages and house after him telling you this.

PS:Just wait til he starts inserting subseven viruses and messing w/ you and your computer. They can bring up a non moveable, minimizeable nor closeable chatroom, they can print stuff, show you documents of yours, make your CD drive go in and out and they can make your harddrive make the loudest, longest &nbsp;incessant beep (like those TV testing things on max volume&#33<img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>. Yep, that's real fun when they do that (not). It's pretty scary, especially when you're clueless about it.

I was ask by the deputies to not give his name yet!!!!!They do have some very good reasons.I do have 2 very mean dogs that do run the yard at night(and day now)the whole road (all 2 houses are watching for me)the police were nice enough to give us the make ,modles ,years and tag # to both their van and truckand after they saw what i have and what they are worth they set up a extra patrol.What the state att. is doing i guess i will know more in the morning and yes this guy and wife are morons (i'm sure they are brother and sister.)I will be giving his name.adress and ph.#as soon as i can.I do know that he is a suspect in a burgury in tampa and i have found out that maybe one in westley chapel to and the employees at a shop in plant city where he stole geckos all of these are pet shops in Florida and all with in a 30 minute drive.I do not understand how a man with 5 kids living on welfare can have albino boas,beardies out the butt and several other high end reptiles. <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>

Two suggestions for you: &nbsp;
&nbsp;#1 &nbsp;Buy a Gun!
&nbsp;#2 &nbsp;Install a video camera in and/or outside your house.

&nbsp;Cameras catch everybody, if you put it in the right place. &nbsp;It's a shame people have to gaurd their homes like Fort Knox because scumbags would rather steal something rather than do it the old fashioned way, &nbsp;EARN IT!!!! &nbsp;Good Luck!

I should have revealed the fact that people i am talking about are famous for posting under several names and e-mails.They l
like to make big claims and and then make replies under false names.I have been thinking of the cameras for awhile now.My biggest concern with this person is what to do at the Tampa show i will speak to the show director and the police dept. for the area the sheriff's deputy said to get a injuction against him and his wife and that way they have to stay 500 feet away from me at the show but what will a moron do to animals at my house? <img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'> &nbsp;because like it was pointed out in a earlier post he must be a real fool to tell me that he and his wife are stalking me and people that are that bold are a threat and will do anything. &nbsp;<img src="http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>

Well Steve I will do just that as soon as i can,as you can see from my earlier post this morning I met with the State ATT. and it would seem that these people have been very bad and they along with a couple others are being looked at very closely for several thiefts.I do have a police report in hand that kind of explains what they do and who is doing it and the people that they do it to,but until I get the okay from the victim I have to keep it to myself but when I can I will post it for all to see and it tells a story of 4 people that use the police to help in thier crimes to steal snakes.But luck would have it that the police dept. in this county did thier job and discovered the lies and misleading statements by these a$$holes and they &nbsp;(police) returned the snakes to thier rightful owners and it is my understanding that they are now investigating the 4 people that claimed to be the victims.
