NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. — Trucker Scott Brick is wondering when his luck will change, after his five-ton truck was stolen and used to break into a movie theatre. And no, it wasn’t a drive-in.
After a fire took his five-ton out of commission for a month and a half, costing him $8,000 in revenue, thieves made “borrowed” his rig Aug. 6. It is believed the truck was used to break into a local movie theatre where thieves tried to remove a large safe.
“I just got the truck back after the fire and now these guys stole it. It’s got a big hex on it,” Brick told local media. He only had the truck back for 10 days before the second incident.
Brick is unable to park the truck near his house, as North Vancouver city by-laws forbid it. But he’s afraid to let the rig out of his sight, now.
“Unfortunately, I can’t keep an eye on it,” says Brick. “Every time I park it by my house it gets ticketed for parking overnight and every time I park it down there it ends up costing me more money than the tickets would.”
