    I am a total dumbass.....

    Hey everyone, please hold your judgment because I know I am just stupid. I tried to sell my extra iPhone X because I only needed one. Ended up trying to sell it off Craigslist and met the guy (who was a kid) in NE Portland (basically the slums).

    I got robbed today and I had both my iPhone Xs stolen. The punk took my iPhone X, then darted out of my car. I ran after him and in the process forgot to lock my car. He came back and stole my other iPhone X that I was using on my phone carrier, when I was coming back to my car. One of the phones was completely sealed up brand new, while mine was running.

    Is there a way to track the phones using the IMEI number since I know both? I f**king hate scumbags like this little punk. Any help would be appreciative guys.

    I believe they can kill them if you have the IMEI numbers. Best to meet people off craigslist at the police station or where I police offer will be around. I also ask for a picture of them and their car before I go meet them. I hope you got insurance on them and they bust the scumbag. I hate this time a year due to the increased rate of shit like this happening. I also carry my gun with me and they are sure as hell can see it. I wish you the best of luck. Contact Apple ASAP with those codes! You might have to file a police report and give them the case number.

    I hope your personal phone was locked and you didnt have any banking stuff on there or pictures of your Credit cards. I feel your pain. It just sucks when people pull that shit.

    Side note, my dumb ass daughter will not put a lock on her phone and has lost it twice while out of the town drinking. Her CC was in the back of the phone as well. SMFH at her. She is 24 and knows everything and will not listen to anyone. All of OUR banking was in her phone as well. We got lucky and found them via an app the next day. She got lucky. I hope they catch your little pricks that did that to you.

    Why weren't you open carrying? That is usually a good theft deterrent and you do live in an open carry state...

    I agree, although I usually don't open carry, I prefer concealed. Regardless, the little fuck would have known I was carrying once he tried to steal from me.

    I chased a couple of teenagers in the woods that threw a stick and hit my gf's car as we were driving by. It was no use. The skinny little fuckers ran like hell and I made it about 3/4 of a mile before I was spent. Caught one little fucker coming out of a house and questioned him but he wouldn't own up to it (certain it was him). Anyway, hell with a bunch of running. Just need to carry some rocks in the car o throw at the fast sumbitches.

    Called the police I assume? and yes they can track the phones...as soon as they try to turn them on... sad thing is it will be some unknowing person who buys it from the punk that robbed you that will also be out... vicious cycle and worse this time of year...

    Also call you carrier they can track your phone...

    When they pull you outta the car just piss your pants after three warnings. When they try to load you up say "omg I gotta shiiit!" No way you go in that cruiser.
