    Wow, you never hear about trucks being stolen form the parking lots along there.

    All kidding aside, that's been a horrible stretch right there for trucks for a long time. If not just stolen, they get in an de-install OEM DVD units with customer walking right by.

    Last I heard of someone on a truck forum who's truck was popped from there, they nabbed it along with 6-8 others in a convoy down 59 headed to the Mexico border. Th trucks were all popped in Houston at the same time. LEA claimed they pop convoys down there all the time. In NW and Arizona it's worse because they take them right across the desert. Many are recovered in the desert obviously ran hard through the crap with signs of a lot of passengers on the way back to this side.

    Oddly enough, I'm long time friends with a manager of that Pappadeaux. She and I and others used to cruise Westheimer etc. Yep, it was a long, long time ago.

    Wish him luck, but I'd bet chances are, they're on the hips of some bandits much further south.

    Update - truck found

    Just a quick update, the truck (or what used to be the truck:rolleyes:) was found. Stripped to the frame only the engine and cab shell left. Looks that this one didn't go to Mexico, so the guns are probably still in the greater Houston area.
