I'm thinking if they stole the Honda 21 in six minutes or less, it must have been
two guys. They were probably casing you guys for from the minute you pulled up.

To Quote Mr. Daniels "Big tall tree and a short piece of rope!!" The dummy's probably get 10 cents on the dollar for the stuff to.

Usually goes to one of two places: pawn shop or drug dealer.
Some of these people have 7 or 8 hundred dollar/day habit, and will do anything to get the money (or something they can trade) for the "fix".

I managed a Cash America Pawn shop for 10 years. When we loan on a stolen item the police will pick it up and we loose our investment. You come in with the same item twice we will not do business with you unless we know that you are a legit company or a good customer.

I had a trailer with a mower (be it a cheapy but still) stolen sittin right outside my GF's house it had cables running through both wheels and wrapped around the axle, and a tounge lock, still hadn't quite figured out how they got it, sure took some work. Police as usual didn't do anything but take a report.
