Paul and Sheila Lynch have lived in their North Las Vegas Neighborhood for a little less than three years.
Previously employed as a mechanic for ten years, Paul scraped together his money to purchase a truck, a trailer, and tools so that he could be his own boss.
But on Saturday, Sept. 3, thieves took off with his mobile mechanic business in less than a minute. Now all he has left is a jack in the driveway.
"I woke up in the morning and my life, and everything that I had, was gone," said Paul.
Paul and Sheila have four kids, one with special needs. Sheila is a stay-at-home mother while Paul is the sole provider for his family.
"If [the thieves] brought [the truck] back, I'd work tomorrow," Paul said.
