He is a @@@@ing idiot, what a waste of time. All your shit is tracked so it was zero chance of him getting away with it.

This Uber driver took passengers to the airport and then allegedly went back to their house and tried to break in
Sorry guys. Here is the clean copy/paste of story. Please disregard the earlier version with the link to stupid CNN packed with useless ads. My bad.??

CNN) — Police in San Mateo, California, have arrested an Uber driver who they say took his riders to the airport and then drove back to their home and tried to break in.
The passengers had reportedly rented the house through Airbnb.
Surveillance footage from a doorbell camera showed a man approaching the front door on Thursday and then walking away from the house. Police say he was chased off when the security alarm went off.
The man was then caught on camera breaking into another home a few blocks away. The house was ransacked and a number of items were stolen.

Ok, let's pick this story apart. First, he was arrested in Sacramento. What driver goes from San Mateo to Sacramento to drive ? It's always the opposite.

Then he supposedly goes back back to the pax house but then goes "a few blocks away" and robs a different house. How did his pax see the video from the owners down the street that had their house bulgarized while they were on vacation ? How did the homeowner know to show this to his guests when it happened "a few blocks" away ? Do homeowners usually have a personal relationship with their guests that rent from them to the point where they see something and then on a whim get in touch with their guests just in case they took a trip with an an Uber and perhaps the Uber driver may have just happened to be the one that broke into that neighbors house "a few blocks away" ?

Can you really imagine that conversation ? "Hey, this is the homeowner you rented from. I just seen a video of a breakin "a few blocks away" from where you rented. I just happened to be good friends with those homeowners from "a few blocks away" and I just happened to see a video they posted of a breakin at this house on a still undisclosed website because I got an alert. I'm curious if you can identify the driver. Is it possible this just happened to be the Uber driver you took a ride from? "

Why was the driver arrested in San Mateo ?

Sounds like a fake story.

Because the "ring" products, door bell, flood light cam, have a community that goes by radius in an area and people will post what their camera picks up. Like...here is a strange guy going house to house with a clip board....etc. Even if its not part of the ring network, the police will investigate, and since everyone has security cameras now, they go door to door and ask people if their camera picked up anything on this day and time. You make it sound like there is never a story of a guy breaking into multiple houses in a neighborhood and getting caught. Happens all the time, this 1 just happens to be an Uber driver who knew the house was empty.

Like most people, you just look at the title and the gist of the article without questioning it.

Yes, burglaries happen all the time but not in the manner this story is portraying. It's so ridiculous it's not possible to be true.

But this is my opinion. You are free to believe what you want. And most people just believe anything thrown at them. Because.....people won't believe it unless they see it on tv......old Richard Nixon quote

Most people have no idea who runs things behind the scenes. I've given enough information if you've seen my posts to give you an idea that nothing is what it seems in the news.

I thought about this the other day when I asked a Couple how long they are going to be gone for ... ummm hope they dont think I am planning anything :eek: .. (I'm going to quit asking those questions)

I bet that does happen more often than is reported

Like most people you assume I didn't actually read the entire article and I read all of your posts on this subject. You sound like the typical conspiracy theorists and if you're quoting Nixon, an old one especially if you don't realize its 2019 and people belong to community facebook pages for their neighborhood where the video may have been posted, it doesn't specify or maybe a friend of a friend saw it and knows the house, who knows the actual circumstance but its entirely possible. According to you its all fake, the story is fake, the guy must be fake, the police report is fake, the public record of the arrest is fake, the surveillance footage is fake, everything is fake.....SMH

I don't think the Uber driver would appreciate me bringing a used BBQ along for the ride though.
Sadly, based on my observations, I wouldn't be surprised if most of the desperate ants would happily load it into their trunk for you.
