That's some crazy odds, catching someone in the act while in the air.

Can you use a mobile phone from a small plane, or would he have radioed it in?

Yay Florida! 2013's first Fark thread! Congrats.

This is good. But to be a truly great Florida headline, it would need more. Like the owner, instead of calling the police, strafing the offending truck. And giving the gun-camera footage to the local news station. Then being arrested for weapons charges and becoming a cause célèbre amongst 2nd Amendment folks.

Well, from Sarasota may I wish you farking Farkers a Happy New Year and I'm thankful the first greenlight of 2013 wasn't from Kentucky. If Fark was owned by anyone else besides Drew, Kentucky would have its own tag.

Okay, I need to get more bourbon and find a random stranger to kiss.

This thread could be commercial, with a few Margaritas in the right company.

To be fair, the owner is only a part-time Florida resident (he also has a home in North Carolina) and the thief is from Virginia. The owner did follow the thief from the air:

Zehntner followed the vehicle as it traveled along S.R. 388 towards I-75, then contacted the GCSO, who then alerted Lee County Sheriff's Office.

You should have your Thai stepmother get some 11 Tiger for you. That will make your evening interesting.

Better still: Not being arrested for the gun charge....but getting busted for the 16 kilos of pot he forgot to take out of his plane before giving the interview to the reporter just as the cops arrived to confirm he had a legal permit for the shotguns.

I thought he was stealing his trailer home.
 
2013-01-01 12:43:18 AM  
The white zone is for immediate theft of trailers only. There is no stealing in the red zone.

It's enough that she makes kick-ass wine and saki. The saki is especially good, she uses raisins to give it a nice flavor, but unfortunately she didn't make any this year. She also makes some really good eggrolls, but all I got was the wine this year.

/Thanks Tanom.

Actually, that would be better.

That was some pretty darn efficient work and nice cooperation between several different Sheriff's Departments to put that together. Spotted and reported to the GCSO, followed and pulled over by the LCSO, and arrested by the CCSO.

WTF kind of person has enough money for multiple homes and a personal recreational airplane, but still lives out of a trailer?

Oh. Of course. Hello Florida.

Emposter: WTF kind of person has enough money for multiple homes and a personal recreational airplane, but still lives out of a trailer?

I think he had his trailer parked at his second home, so to answer your question: A kind of person who owns two homes, a private recreational airplane, and a trailer. (I'll bet he owns a boat too.)
 
2013-01-01 08:11:20 AM  
My theory holds true, the thief is from Virginia, the trailer owner/pilot is from North Carolina. Quit sending us your crazy.

Yeah, I also was interested in the scheme of communications that made this happen. I'm guessing he dialed 911 on his cell, wouldn't that be a PITA while flying? And how is the dispatcher going to believe your ass?

I love my ridiculous state. Happy 2013 from Ocala; now GBTW.

Sheesh, There's 4 different counties mentioned in that article.

CCSO seized the pickup for forfeiture. Glades County Sheriff's Office detectives continue their investigation into the theft and weapons found in the Haines pickup.

what allowed them to do the seizure? the article didn't mention drug sales. or drugs at all.

hey maw!! get off tha dang roof!!

Came for the "I see what you did down there". Disapointed.

No problem using cell while flying, though he would have to
circle to stay close.

Stinkyy I'm guessing he dialed 911 on his cell, wouldn't that be a PITA while flying? And how is the dispatcher going to believe your ass?

Don't know about the believing part, but a plane will pretty much fly hands-off once it is in the air and trimmed out. I have flown cross country several times only touching the controls to make course and altitude adjustments. Plus, even the smallest planes today have autopilots. I even fell asleep once while on autopilot. My wife woke me up and said aren't you supposed to be flying the plane?
