    Parked my trailer in the drive for the afternoon it had two scag ZTRs, a 48 walkbehind scag, and a new 14 hp Fradan leaf blower.
    Some scumbags backed up drive in broad daylight and stole the Fradan off the trailer-What the heck is wrong with people???
    Really screws up my week cause now I have to search the pawn shops and see if it turns up and if not buy another unit.
    I always took equipment theft for granted and figured heck I'm in a quiet neighborhood it wont happen here, ya right!

    What part of Wallingford? I'm from Wallingford and I'll keep a close eye out for anything I might see. I'm from out by the Woodhouse soccer fields. Just curious what part of town you were in when the blower was stolen?

    Sorry for the double post, but I can't edit my post.

    I had a STIHL TS400 stolen right out of the back of my truck. It was parked on the street because it had a trailer on it. The saw was way in the front of a utilty body where you couldn't see it unless you stood on the bumper/trailer tongue to look in the bed.

    A few places to check are the pawn shop on State Street in New Haven and the Redwood flea market in Wallingford down by the Oakdale (Chevrolet Theater).

    I drive by the Redwood Flea-Market every Saturday and Sunday and there is a guy there that has a booth set up with landscaping equipment EVERY week. I haven't seen any big blowers or anything there, but I'd still check that out. I've always thought that place had a lot of stolen stuff there. Hopefully if they get caught with stolen stuff there they might finally shut that stupid place down. People there drive like IDIOTS and they park 3/4 on the road.
