Normally I don't like to write about bad things, I always try and just move past them. But this time its so different, Night before last we were robbed. We lost thousands of dollars of tools, from our truck. We were parked at our Holiday Inn, right under 4 lights, right beside a main road here in Greenville, Mississippi, with cameras pointed right on our truck.
Three police cars were here within 2 minutes of our call. They took some great fingerprints off the truck, (whoever did it didn't wear gloves). This should be an open and shut case, right? Well it appears that the investment company that owns this Holiday Inn Express and the Econ0Lodge next door, put in a great camera system, over 2 years ago, but then failed to teach anyone to actually rewind it, to see anything it has ever recorded.
Now 2 days later, we are being told that there may be one woman that does know how, but she hasn't answered any of the emails, nor her cell phone.
I feel a bit better, another truck was robbed at near the same time, from this same Holiday Inn, that can't afford security guards...... This man lost over $5,000 in tools and was from Ohio.. It's sad when people steal, its sad to see we live in a world of pirates.... A horrible pox on the thieves of the world......
