Tell Us: Thefts After the Storms

Did you lose anything to thieves in the aftermath of two storms?

Rifles, generators, gas, electronics. All were items reported stolen in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy after it hit Oct. 29.

Suffolk County police said the Camp-Site Sport Shop in Huntington Station was broken into Oct. 30 and eight rifles were stolen.

In recent weeks, a story, perhaps apocryphal, has circulated throughout Huntington about a homeowner discovering that a lawn mower rigged to run to cover the theft of a running generator.

An Oklahoma tree-removal service said tires and hoses were slashed and diesel fuel siphoned after it did work in Huntington last week.

Homeowners in West Hills said a man using a cellphone and walking through the neighborhood on Oct. 29 was assumed to be a utility worker. But then items, including a $3,500 generator that was chained to an auto, disappeared from garages and backyards.

What about you? Did you experience any thefts after the storm?

People suck. I wish bad karma on all the people that stole things, especially generators. And now some more out-of-staters can leave and tell people how horrible 'New Yorkers' are.
