Police recover my stolen equipment

Hats off to the Pinellas Park police and the Pinellas County Sheriff! This morning I got a call from the police to come down and reclaim my equipment. Reclaimed all but 2 pieces. Made my day!

Good to hear! Was it all handheld stuff or what?

I've spent the last few winters, for a week to 10 days at a shot, in st. pete. Drove all over down there, learned the area pretty well, sorta, lol. Thinking about actually driving down there this janurary (yeah crazy drive from here!) My step-bro lives in Tampa now though... Maybe you could put me to work for a couple days, haha. I know things aren't looking too good down there green-wise though!

All of the handhelds/blowers that have been stolen from me over the years have been too, they've also been painted differently, just means they can't sell it at a pawn shop. So, if that stuff is stolen, you probably won't see it again.

Congratulations on getting your stuff back. Did they recover it from a pawn shop, or from the thief?

They found it during a search of a house along with a bunch of laptops, guns, etc.

So is your dad a cop or did they have to keep going around it during the search for the laptops and finally get mad and move it, then suddenly realize, hey this might be stolen!!!!

Glad you got your stuff back but I can't give credit to those hacks. Maybe the Sheriffs, but those other ones are useless.
