Warning! Tires slashed - AZ Wildcat/Camp Creek/11-mile wash

Today all four of my truck tires got slashed as well as 4 other trucks at the Tonto National Forest parking area at the north end of 136th St. near north Scottsdale. I think the area is also known as Granit Mountain. Had a nice day of riding only to come back to my truck to find the tires flat and slashed. It must have been done sometime between 12:30 and 3:45. Needless to say we were all very pissed and it created quite a problem and expense getting our trucks towed out. Something makes me think it was a resident that lives somewhere along 136th street the doesn't like the traffic going up there. They also put a "private drive" sign up about 1/4 mile before the area and it is a public dirt road.

Here's an idea for you

First, I offer my sympathy that you have been the victim of vandalism
perpetrated by a cowardly 4$$h0le.


I'd go back again with a couple of big strong buddies, a video camera,
and some appropriate personal protection gear, and ride off and then
sneak back and wait in the bushes for the guy who did it to come back
and do it again. Video them in the act of slashing tires again and you'd
have a slam-dunk court case and all of your buddies could go after the
perpetrator for damages and lost wages etc. An arrest would be guaranteed,
and it sounds to me like the damages incurred the first time were sufficient to
secure a felony conviction, though I do not know the law on this in your state.


On the other hand, if this area is close to a drug smuggling route and that's why
they don't want you riding around out there, you could find yourself facing some
dangerous people. Obviously it's your call what you decide to do.

The problem with setting up a game camera is that if you aren't around and the perps
wear a hoodie or a balaclava, you haven't got much to work with. That's why I like
the plan of two or three large strong friends hiding in the bushes. The idea is that
you don't allow the perp to leave the scene of the crime. You hold him and call the
cops.

This may be the correct thing to do, but a little street justice sounds much sweeter to me.

Sorry about this ABDog.

FWIW your rig screams "law abiding, considerate, tax payer." Whoever did this is angry in an ideological way. The pool of suspects would be much broader if it were a lifted Titan w/ powder coated wheels, tinted windows and Monster energy stickers.

It is going to cost me just under a grand for the tires and tow. My insurance deductable is $1000. The bastards even slashed my spare tire underneath!

The Sheriff said that just last weekend other vehicles got their tires slashed at that very same parking area. Also, a friend that live near that area said some other friend of his got hassled for riding their street legal dirt bikes up that very same road a few weeks ago. It is definately a reident. Also, at the intersection of 136th St. & Ashler Hills Rd someone put an official looking "private road" sign which it is no way a private road. Some street justice needs to be done as it is doubtful law enforcement will or can do anything.

Just a thought, if a person has put a sign up, legal or not & his first attempt at diversion & inforcement in the area to off roaders is slashing tires, personally I would consider this to be a dangerous person & could be capable of much more? No drug runners here, I would think a deranged local for sure. $1,000 a lot of money for sure to be out. Don't know what the answer here is. Law inforcement should be the method in solving this, for sure your life is worth more than the risk! I ride alone a lot & often run into road closed or no trespassing signs on roads I feel are legal to be on but see no physical reason to press the issue. I realize the area you were in is highly used to unload & ride from but??

tires

I'd start by removing the 'private property' sign but leave it on the ground near where it had originally been posted. Find a suitable OP and see who puts the sign back up. This "might" help you ID a person of interest. Further recon might lead you closer to either justice or retribution. You have boots on the ground there, I don't so take my advice for what it's worth; very little.

So you're saying violence should be the answer to all problems? WTF?

What a bunch of bullshit for the OP. Hope the person gets caught and is made to pay for all the damage.

While a stake out sounds like a great idea to catch the scumbag
who here has that sort of time?
