Someone went it to my barn and stole one arm off my three point on the ss15. I think I'm going to down size to one garden tractor and lock it up in the shed down at the house.

As has been said before, I hate a thief! And up here we can't even legally protect ourselves with a booby trap. We're supposed to call law enforcement and they will "handle it". Good luck with that one! You have my sympathies.

I traveled all over the country with the Navy and was burgled in Texas more times than I can count on one hand. Not sure why but I just chalked it up to bad luck in that state, but I think it was a little more than that. If a 3pth is all they stole you most likely know the ass hat that did it. People close to us have the best opportunity to scope out the specific items you own and grab only a few things, where as random stranger crime usually consists of everything of value they can load up or carry! My best friend survived on my items for two years, I was robbed every once in a while and made police reports, as he spiraled downward he eventually stole some prescriptions from me the cops found him overdosed that night! They finally figured out who it was and I had been telling them for the whole two years it was most likely someone close to me, just didn't figure that close. Hope you have better luck.

If it is like most barns just to open to lock it up.  Any idea which way they are coming from to get it?  Know a guy that protected his watermelon patch with 4 rows of barb wire about a foot off the ground and a foot apart horizontally.  First one tripped the person to drop them into the other 3.  By the time they crawled out of that they were not in any mood to steel the watermelon.

One time years ago I needed my 74 Blazer to move a friends camper, got in started it, put in reverse and just revved the engine. Someone came into my drive and stole the rear drive shaft out of it. When I started calling wrecking yards I found out why, just not any available unless you knew someone which I did. I just locked the front hubs and used as a front wheel drive that day.

I can't imagine a 3 pt arm being enough value to do any good for him unless he knows someone looking for parts for that particular model. I'd say it is either someone with that model tractor or someone just looking to aggravate you.

  When I lived in Texas it dawned on me how bad it is when told I had to have a title for an outboard motor.

Well if this thieving has happened twice, it's likely to happen again. I would pick up a cheap no flash wildlife camera, and mount it up out of eye level. You can get pictures of the thief, and if you know him/her, confront them with a few options...

I have four game cameras set up for watching bear and such in my yard. Side benefit is it catches anybody in yard and driveway! A few are not noticeable at all. An idea you could try?
