    Hey not sure where to post this but if your from mass auburn area be on the look out for people stealing plows. Friends 2010 ford 450 was stolen yesterday from his business . They took the plow a extreme v 9.5 ft off it and an older air flo sander out of it then set the truck on fire in sterling ma. Just thought I'd give guys the heads up who live in central ma

    I had no clue till just now its was Matt's truck. I'll be on the look out for the plow and sander for sure. Anyone with info can call Auburn, MA Police or Bell Lawn & Garden Center in Auburn, MA.

    Make sure he calls the local fisher and air flo dealers, good chance they'll need some wiring or parts. I'd bring a nail gun to every Craigslist add.

    I'll definately keep an eye out... I live in Sterling.
    If they took it in Auburn and dumped it in Sterling, my guess is the maggots are from this area, maybe even Sterling or Clinton. Any idea where in Sterling they dumped and burned it?

    I am one town over from sterling. Are there any pic of truck with the sander and plow to see what it looks like? Those people who did this should be burned, bogus

    The fact that they burned the truck suggests that this was probably done by someone who wants to eliminate the competition. If you're just going for the plow itself, you don't burn the truck because that increases the attention. This attack means that they're trying to take you out of business for the season.

    Tis the season to be Robbing.. That sucks..Hope your friends insurance takes care of it.. I made sure my truck and all my equipment is insured on my policy and valued higher that expected so if anything ever does get stolen, ill be covered plus get a little extra for my troubles..

    I dont think burning one truck of hundreds if not thousands in the area gives you much of a competitive advantage. Especially a truck, plow, and sander that can easily be replaced before the end of the week.

    Insurance scam is more likely than mafia style competition elimination

    <<Not saying this guys buddy is trying to collect the insurance>>
