Louisville and Southern Indiana stolen equipment investigation

If your company has had equipment stolen in the past 3-4 years contact me.

I have an open investigation with Floyd County Sherrif's Department against a lowlife that worked temp for me last year and stole some equipment.

While investigating the records at Cash America Pawn, where this loser pawned my equipment, the detective uncovered a history of lawn care equipment pawned by this individual.

Laughing my ass off! Got my Stihl HS45 back today from the cops. Dude repaired the bent blade, sharpened it up good and oiled it and put a new plug in it. Now it's back in my truck. Best part is the guy that bought it is a LCO!

If you're a LCO and you buy from a pawn shop you are no different than the thieving crackheads unloading our stuff at pawn shops. I can't be any clearer about it. If that hits a nerve with you, then you've never thought about where all the equipment in pawn shops comes from; or you're morally deficient...stupid or crooked, take your pick.

I met that guy once a few years ago, he had the place in Greenville. I had heard the feds had busted him.

It is pretty narrow minded to judge anybody who buys a piece of equipment from a pawn shop. I know for a fact that pawn shop dealers pick up stuff at auctions and sales all the time. I sure hope you don't get upset when people judge lawn care companies as uneducated "Lawn Boys", as you seen to like to judge everyone from the surface.

I was stating facts, not talking crap. The industry that you are in has a hard enough time maintaining a positive, professional image, so how can you stereo-type all individuals by wether or not they buy anything at a pawn shop. Not that it really matters, but I have been involved in this industry for almost 18 years, and trust me, my knowledge is not based on how many posts on an internet forum.

Yea i understand were you are coming from but some people have to puchase stuff from pawn shops, Private owners, Ect.. just to get started in this buisness. I personnally never purchased anything from a pawn shop & never will. It just upsets me that people would call us uneducated lawn boys when i work harder than most people. Im always the first one up and the last one to go to bed, go to school for my hort. dergree and be responsable for a workforce of 6 people. Now if that uneducated there full of shi*.
To each there own i guess
