In 1971 J. Standard Baker Quoted " Drivers Towing Trailers Are Four (4) Times As Unsafe As Those In Cars Alone!
Every Member Of The 2018 General Assembly has ignored our facts,,,or figures...and our cause...why? You need to look no further than every elected lawmaker for these continued thefts...
They do not like us...because we call them out and then we help vote them out.
In 2017 Elections every lawmaker who was running for office that had knowledge of our cause was either voted out of office and or was not elected....we are at 100% .
Congressman Dave Brat Is next on our list because he knows all about these thefts and has chosen to do nothing.
Retired Marine, former police officer looking for help after camper stolenPosted 7:23 pm, March 30, 2018, by Anthony Sabella, Updated at 10:16PM, March 30, 2018
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A local man's plans to visit his grandchild in May took a turn last weekend when his beloved camper was stolen.
Chuck Dey, a retired U.S. Marine Corps officer and former Virginia Beach Police Officer says he got the camper six years ago as a means to enjoy his retirement in the warm months.
He parked the camper outside the Virginia Beach Family Moose Lodge on Shipps Corner Road each winter and never had a problem.
Then, last Sunday, he came to check on it and saw it was gone.
"I went in to check with [the administrator] to see if he had had it moved and he said, 'no, it was here when I left'," said Dey. "We went and checked the camera inside the lodge and were able to ascertain it had left the lodge about 11:53, Saturday night."
Dey says his camper was parked behind others in the parking lot, so surveillance couldn't capture who took his 28-foot camper, but he says it would've been someone with a truck big enough to pull it.
Dey took to Facebook with pictures to get the word out in a post that's been shared hundreds of times, but right now, he's also working with insurance to get it replaced.
He says a generator and thousands of dollars worth of other belongings were inside because Dey and his wife were getting ready to visit their granddaughter in Texas.
"It takes a big set of 'gonads', so-to-speak, to pull something like that off a private lot like this," said Dey. "If somehow it gets back on this lot, undamaged, with everything still intact just like it was, just park it here and take off and I'm not gonna look for you again."
Dey filed a police report on Sunday.
Anyone with information on where Dey's trailer might be should call the Virginia Beach Police Department.

Over 1.2 Billion Dollars Of Utility Trailers And Contents Stolen In 2016 Nationwide
Utility Trailers are the most often things stolen on two wheels...and the least often found. (Quote Every Police Officer In The Nation)
Richmond VA: Stolen Trailers.org along with newly acquired The National Stolen Trailer Crime Bureau (NSTCB.org) today released it's annual HOT TRAILERS report which identifies the 10 worst states in the United States for stolen utility trailers. This report discloses the thefts of Utility Trailers reported by the news media and with our Google Search Engines discloses with our mathematical algorithms that supports our data.
Included in today's release is the list of 10 States in the Nation that we simply asked the NICB (National Insurance Crime Bureau) over and over again to prove our data wrong. They never responded to our repeated data and our claim that this so called crime fighting organization is incompetent in reporting and preventing stolen utility trailers.
We simply asked our political leaders and the NICB to prove our statement wrong to witch we never get any reply listed below are our two statements:
"Utility Trailers Are The Most Often Things Stolen On Two And Sometimes 4 Wheels ....And The Least Often Found"
The reality is that the State of South Carolina and 11 other States is somewhat complicit in inflicting damage to these good hearted folk and budding entrepreneurs. South Carolina and 11 Other States chooses not to title trailers meaning very few have license plates attached …. Or even a means for law enforcement officers to make effective inquiry of the various computerized lookouts / wants for stolen property. Think about it … as a Highway Patrolman on any Interstate coming behind a utility trailer headed to a flea market in Any State to sell “stuff”, there is no method WHATSOEVER for that officer to make a computerized inquiry to establish reasonable cause which leads to probable cause and an arrest / recovery. Every Lawmaker hamstrings law enforcement inflicting further harm on your residents.While we focus on the 10 worst of the worst 38 States that require registrations for trailers will allow anybody to re-register any stolen trailer and re-title it using a "Homemade" trailer application and obtain a new vin number and license plates on a stolen trailer without proving anything. In addition every state allows the abuse "Farm Use Tag" Or "Agricultural" tags and never get questioned.
For 2017 the most stolen utility trailers in the United States were:
VirginiaNo Government Agency wants to address stolen trailers in fact we have been in committee meetings when the utility trailer industry has lobbied against our recommendations to slow down the thefts.
Our suggested solutions have been submitted to every insurance company and every United States Senator and even the NICB which never responds. Our suggestions are as follows:
All trailers must have a unified vin number system located across all makes and models and placed at the same exact location.
Each number or letter must be 1/2 wide by 1/2 inch high and be stamped into the metal of trailer within 6 inches to 12 inches from the hitch.
Every Farm Use trailer must also be subjected to the same no matter how powerful the lobbyist groups are.
A National data base and cross reference must be initiated and maintained to check every vin number to any stolen trailer.
All trailers being towed are subjected to a "Primary Offense" for lights, chains, hitch pins, tires and then are subjected to checking vin numbers.
Any trailer without a stamped vin number after 5 years of the National Vin Number System Unification Act will be considered stolen until proven otherwise.
A Misdemeanor charge will be levied on anyone in possession of a Stolen Trailer or anyone buying one on Craig's List or other social media sights.Currently Stolen Trailers are low hanging fruit and are not a priority for our overworked police departments so we support and encourage new technology to help slow down this massive issue and we do encourage people to visit www.stopstolentrailers.org to see innovation at work.
