shotgun left in truck. trap?

Post by lurker »

for some reason i find this disturbing.
when i walk the dog i pass a red toyota truck, and every day i see a mossberg shotgun sitting on the seat. i've not seen the truck move in the last couple of weeks, and wonder if the owner is trying to bait someone into trying a smash and grab. doors appear locked. being devious of mind, i expect a brick would do the job, though the getaway down the residential street looks tricky. maybe a friend on a scooter, all got up like ninjas.

on the other hand, maybe there's a cable lock to the seat frame and cameras on it 24/7. i haven't looked that closely.

Curious, could it be a police sting? Worth a call to your local PD stating your concern?

C'use my post on your topic Lurker. Definitely a set - up. Persons truck was prolly broken into before and has cameras and or motion detectors looking at it 24/7. Who knows, a booby trap! Not a good way to entrap a thief using a gun as bait. If the perp got hold of it and shot someone he could be held accountable. Thats just stupid. I'd call police immediately.

I'd call the cops and report it. Maybe an owner could be persuaded to secure it better.

Maybe talk to the vehicle owner? Make sure everyone is OK? It might be an older person who forgot where he left it. You never know.
