As a former prosecutor, I can tell you, the "savings" from receiving stolen merchandise will never counter act the attorney's fees, public shame and other costs you will eventually incur.
Sorry to read you nearly broke your hand getting out the money to pay for the stolen blower. I hope you hand is healed when you finally get handcuffs put on them.
Luckily, dumb people make public statements, put them on the Internet for the police to use at trial.
You ended you post by stating "What do you think?"
I think you are a thief's best friend!
