Looting freights...

Recommended Posts

I heard that one of the reasons that security is becoming tighter on yards is because people steal shit out of boxcars. what do they ship that people want? i always thought it was mostly pallettes, sand, coal, and stuff in bulk that nobody could use or carry themselves.

that is a problem in my area..

 

there are usually tropicana juice jugs all over the place..

 

people do it for the fuck of it..i know more than a few (foolish) writers who have done it..

 

they've gotten plenty of stupid shit, like paper towels,

but they have also gotten beer

 

i have heard (sad) stories of mail being stolen as well.

 

...PEOPLE WILL STEAL ANYTHING

it doesn't have to be of any value..

and yes, it brings a lot of heat down.

Sore subject. We've covered this before. The vast majority of cars carry stuff that is useless or even impossible to steal: bricks, lumber, giant rolls of paper, coal, limestone, clay, chemicals, grain, plastic pellets, etc. The trouble is that rarely cars will carry coffee (110 lb. bags), beer or wine or some other reasonably desirable cargo. There are some hot spots where people know there are beer cars, and security has gone up drastically in those areas due to breakins.

Obviously, this activity brings heat big-time. I and my boys will straight up vick anybody we see breaking into cars, unless we're seriously outnumbered or in unfamiliar territory. I would at least consider fronting as an angry worker rolling on them. (Depending on your location, you may not want to try this, you could always get killed rolling on some well-armed thieves.)

its good to see that there is somewhat of a consensus opinion that stealing from trains is bad. this gives me a bit more hope.

i was under the impression "vic" as a verb was short for "victimize"

as in "fuck you up and take your shit"...

Felony Burglary of Railroad Property

 

Five to Twenty. No thanks. I don't care if the cars were full of gold Kruggerands, it ain't worth going to prison over.

i saw a show on a&e where they were staking out a yard waiting for looters... they rolled up on some mexicans stealing tommy hilfiger gear out of a boxcar.

 

so, like cracked said, there is some desireable loot for illegal aliens to take.

...um not to speak for cracked, but he was not infering that the theives were illegal aliens nor common theives, its was directed at writers whose only business should be to hit the train and leave the place ninja style....

"vic" and "vamp" are both still used in NY, and i've always been under the impression that they both came from graff crews (VIC, TVS) who had a rep for robbing people of paint.

i knew LOTS of people who used to use vic as a verb meaning 'to steal'. nothing as sophisticated as 'victimize'. sorry for the semantics crak'd, i knew what you meant.

anyway, one of the best yards here was heated up by some non writer local ghetto fools following the fr8s from the nike place we have here into the yard and stealing loads of nikes and selling them for shit low prices. theyd also steal other shit, so now security is beefed up like whoa.

if what kabar said is true about 5 years...damn thats a pretty good reason right there. i don't care how much loot you could make. 5+ years of my life is not worth a relatively small amount of money.

I remember back in 1989 when I was in Jonior High we were horseing around in this freight yard, this was before I wrote, we found a car carrying rice crispies. the door was slightly open. Of course we got our razors out and slashed up as many boxes as we could. Man that was fun as hell. there were rice crispies all over the yard. I sure wish i could come to some of your yards and make a mess like that. If for nothing else just to piss you faggots off.
