how about I place a call to them acting as a town official the Dept. of Ordinances... saying that all the neighbors are complaining that the pit is lowering property values and smelling up the neighborhood and could result in fines if not removed within 48 hrs.
you can then call to "borrow" it...
surely they want that eyesore off their property....
