My truck got JACKED in Houston!!

Well I am in Houston for sometime and have heard the horror stories of Dodge 3/4T 4x4's getting jacked. Old Goats was the first one I heard of and then a buddy of mine was down here last winter and his got jacked......well Sunday morning I wake up around noonish after a LONG night drinking and go out to get in my truck to go to the ATM and right below the drivers doorhandle was a hole about the size of your pinky!!! I am not sure if they gained entry or not because there was not a thing disturbed that I could tell. Anyway, talked to the hotel attendant who said that is a fairly frequent thing here.......which is apparent cause this is the 2nd one since I have been here on Jan. 21st. They even have a security guard, but he seems to be pretty busy hustling the night attendant!!

OH well, what do you do? Camp out with a 44mag in the back seat? LOL!!

bam

I say shoot em and leave em face up so the birds can crap on em. Yep, it is a "frequent problem at that hotel" and if they have not yet figured out who is doing the break ins they are much more ignorant than I originally thought. Wonder what happened to the cameras and fence they were going to put up? Got to be an inside job IMHO. They must have one heck of a water tight contract with the folks who send employees there. Very sorry to hear it happened to you. Glad they did not get anything. They pretty much cleaned me out since I was tired and dumb enough to leave some of my stuff in the truck.

It is the Towne Place Suites owned by Marriot. It is in between the La Quinta and Super 8. Really nice place and the people that run it are really nice and helpful. I came in last night and parked my truck right in front of the door (fire lane), walked in and told them that is my new parking place! They said not a problem, we will keep an eye on it.

Just dont want it to get too far since there is already an access point in the freaking door!!

I cant believe that -- really hate to hear it. Katy use to be part of the nice side of town -- I guess things have really changed around there in the last couple of years.
