MASH Bus stops thieves in their tracks.

by on Jun.15, 2010, under Uncategorized

DALLAS, TX  –  We maintain the MASH Bus at a commercial manufacturing facility in a suburb of Dallas, Texas.  The manufacturing facility has been the victim of burglars three times this year since January.  Well you might ask, what do the MASH Bus and Burglaries have in common?  Read on we will explain.

The most recent burglary attempt was this last weekend.  We had the bus stored inside the manufacturing facility for some medium duty maintianance over the next few weekends.  The thieves decided it would be a good thing to ram their pickup truck though a roll up bay door.  Well while in concept this might be a good plan but  . . . I do not think it worked out so well for the burglars.

You see directly behind the roll up door was the MASH Bus –weighing in at 16,000 lb.  The 1971 International Harvester bus sports a blue bird body and a massive forward facing all steel bumper.   The MASH Bus has a split rear end with deep low end gears.  When I park the MASH Bus I always put the bus in gear in low one.  These gears are so deep most tractor owners are envious.  When engaged these gears make the bus one serious monument of steel, it would take a fleet of monster trucks to move the bus when it is in low one, if it could be moved at all.  I mean when driving in low one top speed does not even register on the speedometer, now that is some deep gears !!!!!!

All this talk about 16,000 lbs., burglaries, deep gears, steel and such, you can guess what happened – yep;  the burglars rammed the roll up door only to slam right into the front of the parked bus.

The MASH Bus did not budge – NOT one inch!

Once again the old bus – has served us well.

 Unfortunately I do not have any photos as the burglars stole my camera but honestly I think you can envision exactly what I am telling you.

Now I am told that I cannot legally encourage violence – but I can tell you that I have a stake dinner for anyone that might thwart any further burglary attempts and if in the process of preventing the burglary a criminal got hurt or killed on the property we can assure as the property owners we would not prosecute.

And for all of you that do not believe in an armed response to criminal activity I will leave you with this.  Click on PHOTO to see full sized.
