    Pulled into the shop this morning and noticed most of the work trucks jacked up on blocks, with everyone standing around. Seems over the weekend someone took it upon themselves to slash eleven tires on a total of nine trucks.

    Only the trucks that are used on a daily basis had slashed tires, shop trucks and spare trucks not affected, this seemed odd.

    Myself and the other two service Techs and Gas Fitter drive our trucks home.

    A former employee was visited by the local police department, unsure if anything has been proved as of yet.

    We all know who did it, just will never be able to prove it.

    I had that happen to my daughter from a P.O'd girl at school. She had some friends do the deed to her car, I tried to get info. but the dude that did it ratted on all of them, guilt kicked in I guess. He had to pay for the tires (of which we only got 125$) and did 40 hours community service, planting flowers for the city.:rolleyes:

    We think or know it is a former worker that left a year ago. He owed the company money and did not pay. Boss took him to court last week I was told. A garnishment was put on his wages to repay his past due debt.

    I watched a Law and Order: SVU marathon yesterday, I'll handle this! Get Dr. Wong here stat! Ok trucks where did the bad man touch you? Ok now we gotta rough some people up... where's Ice T at when we need him? Well it ended up being a big plot twist at the end, ended up the trucks slashed their own tires because they were actually born mini vans and their parents had them sex changed because of a terrible roofing accident at the factory when they were born. Case closed!

    offer a small reward to his palls for any info he might spill when drunk about the tire poping problem.

    i work with tires every day. we have a guy who has less than 15k miles on his truck and has had 5 sets of tires. cant prove it but its the same person every time. and 6-750 each time for 4 tires. :eek1:

    we got 11 cars/trucks towed in sat morning one time and in 6 hrs we got all but 1 done . anywere from 1-4 tires cut and all were non std size stuff. new and or custom stuff. but we got it. :bow:

    Well he is a bit upset after he found out insurance looks at it as a per truck claim, not an overall claim. 500 dollar deductible per truck, so one or two tires per truck is not high enough for a claim.

    Then yesterday one of the other Service Techs got his truck nailed hard in the side on a slippery back road. Major damage done, truck out of commission for a while.

    Not a good week for the company fleet.

    Would the difference point to the guilty party? I'd expect someone like that to cut all or random in order to cover their tracks better.

    That would be an SVU Law and Order, and unless he humped all those tires you had better go with the regular Law and Order or the CI.:wink1:
