    I did not read this whole thread so if it hasn't been said already.... file a police report and visit all of the local pawn shope. Also check EBay and Craigs List. Good luck and sorry about your loss.

    People around here are too lax. I was at the mall and someone had their handhelds on the truck while they were in the store... crazy.

    You wrote what needed to be said in this post. This is something that is going to increase as unemployment runs out from all the job losses. We have a hard time getting the police to investigate anything because they dedicate all personal to homicides. The worse the economy, the more crime, the more crime, the less investigation, spread too thin, it gets to be a vicious circle.

    I think everyone should be carrying a gun in plain sight. There is one county they were talking about on TV where everyone wears a gun, and their crime rate is zero. Criminals don't want to attempt a crime where they know everyone is carrying an equalizer.

    This is the reason every piece of equipment has its own lock. Here thieves won't work to steal something, it has to be in plain sight and not held down.

    Damn man that sucks big time. You should definitely file a police report (so its documented) not much good other then that. You should also keep an eye on craigslist for them selling the stuff or any local pawn shops.
