I am a 26 year old immigrant and entrepreneur, I moved out here nearly 12 years ago without knowing a word of English and have accomplished very much thanks to the system this beautiful country offers.
My wife and I have been working very hard these past 2 years, in a mobile tire business, which to us sounded like a very attractive idea for a business, We have invested over $10,000 of our hard earned money into it the last 2 years. Because we believe in being debt free everything has been paid for.
We moved to Idaho from Utah 6 months ago for a job for ourselves and an opportunity for our tire business to kick off, however it seems like someone else had different plans and either Sunday night or Monday night they decided to steal everything.
The lease to our shop is up this Saturday, so last Sunday we put all of our equipment into the box truck for the move. making our losses that much devastating. The truck hasn't moved since we moved out here so no insurance was registered under it ,so chances of the insurance helping us are slim.
So in these times of the holidays were we are supposed to be thankful for what we have, this happens to us, this was always our plan B, and very possible employment for others.
It has been 2 days since this happened and my case hasn't even been assigned to a detective, take into an account this is a felony since value of theft is in the thousands of dollars.
There's cameras around the businesses here, but the police hasn't bothered to look into them yet.
My Box truck was stolen with a tow truck, and the police has advised me that they know of a few "dirty" tow truck shops around here, so I hope they look into it but all I got right now is a promise, and no results.
I just wanted the media to be aware of how vulnerable we are, working as hard as we do, and be robbed of something we have put years of effort into just like that, because of people's disregard of one another.
