The meth scum around here have started renting u-haul trailers. The rental companies are aware of what is going on and are being very careful who they rent too these days.

We have a thriving independent chemical processing industry here and those contractors all want one thing in common. Anonymity! They don't want to attract attention. Of course the very small contractors will use a motel room or the trunk of a car.

We don't have any history of independent chemical processors stealing trailers to set up shop. None. They like to rent a farm house 5 miles from the nearest neighbor to minimize detection due to odor and waste. They still are detected by the trail left by their obtaining raw materials which they almost always pay for rather than steal, but quite a few still escape detection by being smart and keeping production on a smaller scale.

The big labs here are on the reservations. Those are very difficult to eliminate.

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

AWCHIEF and Splitrock,

Sounds like my idea is wrong; good! But whoever is doing it, they're real lowlifes and I wish they'd stop. Especially since neither the police nor the insurance cos. seem interested in pursuing the thieves. I guess there are worse things going on, but still, we do pay taxes and should get some serious action for that from public servants. Or am I dreaming??

Say it ain't so, Sal!

Then I guess I just have to get out my [t]rusty shotgun and ride with the posse, dang it all, and carry a good, long rope, too.

When the economy is poor more people will resort to crimes for survival. More addiction & theft. This is a social & economic issue. Addiction is a disease not a crime to be punished for. The environment supports or produces that behavior. So change the environment to change the behavior. That's the only way.

I can't understand stealing an AS. What can be gained? They must have been desperate or not in their right minds. It's not rational. What's new?
