I work in the South Hill area, recently we have had our vehicles being broken into. They have occurred early in the morning around 2am to 4am as recent as this Thursday morning, nov. 19th 2009. We have filed reports and have open cases with the Pierce County Sheriff"s department. Items include 2 girls pink backpacks Hello Kitty and Disney princesses, car stereos, a dome light, yes a dome light, tools etc... The list goes on and on. However on the morning of Nov. 19th at 10.30 a.m. I spotted this vehicle in a WAL-MART parking lot on 160th and Meridian. I approached the truck and noticed a number of my item still inside. I called the sheriff's department to report this. As soon as I was off the phone a man,"Scott", approached the truck I asked him for my stuff. It was not the same person I had seen breaking into my car earlier that morning but I knew it was the same truck. I inquired as to who stole my valuables and where and when I can retrieve them. He replied that it was in fact his brother, he had borrowed the truck earlier in the morning. I retrieved some items he voluntarily and so kindly gave to me. Once I told him police were on there way he left to "find" his brother, I assume to escape. Moments later police arrive, not such great timing. All the Sheriff's officer could do was take my report, no other attempt to figure out where this Scott character was if he was in the store, whom of which has a current warrant, or where the registered owner lived and pay him a visit. Basically, he told me he would pass it on and he would pull the red truck over if he sees it driving around. WOW... I was so close to getting all my stuff back but now my hopes are high, but the reality of it is goodbye, so long. If anyone notices this red Ford Flareside f150 pickup and or this person of interest please alert police.
