Wow, That really pisses me off. I'll keep an eye out for you. They will probably show up at the pier one day.

Reading these posts about the thieves does piss me off. I could understand someone stealing food to feed their family as a last resort. I could understand someone coming through my gate and ringing the bell at the door and asking me for some food to feed his family because they are hungry. I can not understand someone stealing material things for what ever reason. All I can hope for is that the guy who stole your rods is going to fish to feed his family and that's about a one in a zillion odds. Best thing to do is file a police report and they will watch the pawn shops for your stuff as well as when they bust criminals for other crimes when searching their property.

you know, in some countries they would cut his damn hand off. I will keep my eyes open. I have been buying a lot of used combos lately. I'll watch out for yours.

Hey Paul,

Sorry for your loss and surprises me a bit it happened on our street...not saying I haven't had problems in past years but has been pretty quietfor a long stretch..

Kids used to come in my garage and steal beerout the frig..I finally caught the lil thiefs red handed one night and since then no problems...I understandthey (bad kids)have moved away and I know most of the remaining kids I think and they all seemed to be good seeds...

I missed you the other day when you came by handing out flyers but my wife told me about your visit.

I did asked my 15 yr old son per your request if he had any idea who may have stolen your gearand hesaid not to his knowledge..I pressed him pretty hard and he says he doesn't know of any corrupt kids in our area...

Sounds like someone may havehad prior knowledge of the contents in your van to target/break in a particular vehicle...Did you hear of any other recent breakins on our street or area while passing out flyers???

I'm guilty of leaving my garage access door open all night but no more..

If you ever need anything just give me a shout now you know we're neighbors..

Jimmy
