(Dallas News)   If trading a $10,000 meat smoker for $75 worth of dope sounds too good to be true remember, there is always a catch, like when your dealer asks you to steal it from the police department   (crimeblog.dallasnews.com) divider line 32

Frazier said the truck is ostensibly for a lawn service owned by a known drug dealer. "But it's just a front," he said. "They don't cut grass. They use the truck to commit thefts and burglaries."

 Which wasn't a problem until your smoker was stolen.

Of course they recovered the smoker. It belonged to the police, they can't be bothered to recover my laptop even when I tell them what address it is at.

So their plan was to steal a massive, custom-built, 20-foot, $10,000 smoker, and hope nobody puts two and two together when the barbeque joint down the street debuts its brand new, massive, custom-built, 20-foot, $10,000 smoker.

I've told this story before, but it's stuck with me.

When I worked at Blockbuster a co-worker actually watched from the store as a pair of thieves stole the muffler off his Beetle and loaded it into their pickup. He wrote down the license plate number and called the cops. They said there was nothing they could do because it was below a certain dollar amount.

Awesome!

Stupid?  Yes, of course-- but awesome just the same.

I wouldn't be hugely surprised if that smoker was originally paid for with "drug money" that was seized by the police without any sort of charge or conviction.

The fark is a police department doing with a meat smoker worth that much?

Cop math.  It's only a $3000 smoker.

And why are they going to have "some modifications" done to it?  Pimp my smoker?

I assumed the "modifications" were to make it slightly more difficult to just hitch up and drive off with it.   Mounting points for Kryptonite locks, alarm system, lo-jack.

I'm sure they planned it farther than that.  They were probably going to keep it in the garage, and as long as they kept the garage door closed while using it they would never get caught.

That was my first question.  The answer is, "Because FARK the citizens, that's how."

Attention Dallas: 10,000 of your dollars were spent on a custom BBQ pit.  Just remember that when you fire up your $40 Home Depot special, because you can't afford a nice grill.

The Dallas Police Association is not Dallas PD, it's a private organization, Texas Charter Number 152033.

That $10K came from membership dues paid by active and retired police officers, not tax dollars.

I'm sure someone would eventually notice the stench from their asphyxiated corpses.

Two or three days with a thick smoke and a low fire keeping the garage at around 165°? They'd be soooooooo tender and flavourful.

No problem.   The article does try to make it sound like this was stolen from "The Police" rather than from "The clubhouse used by off-duty cops and retirees".

$75 would be the scrap value of the smoker.

The dept. doesn't own it, the police association does.

Not that I condone it, but this is the kind of thing that causes people to take matters into their own hands the next time rather than call the cops. It's one thing if he just found his muffler had mysteriously disappeared, but to actually catch them in the act and have a license plate number and the cops wouldn't do anything? They're practically inviting people to handle things themselves.

Pee Wee Herman plays the hotel clerk calling the cops on Cheech & Chong and not getting a response until he yells "I think they;re Iranian!"

Why would you watch someone steal something off your car and just stand there?
