    Showed up friday to pick up my lawn equipment from my storage unit picked it all up went out mowed from 730 to 615 came back dropped everything off left for the weekend came back sunday 300 everything is gone except my troybilt weedeater. This was a huge loss called the sheriff and their being total idiots saying they will check pawn shops. All the stuff thats was stolen is on my sig. Please tell me if anything is running out of the ordinary. I can tell you one thing i figure out who did this they will be lookin down marlin 30/30. Thanks

    Sorry to here about your loss,I had a blower stolen awhile ago so I know how you feel.Actually the cops checking pawn shops is not a bad idea and is more than they did for me.If you have bill of sale with serial numbers let the cops photocopy them so they can identify you equipment if recovered. The local pawn shop here requires photo ID and works with law enforcement if they suspect hot merchandise.It's good to see somebody your age hustling instead of mooching from their parents and smoking weed like so many of the teens around me.Don't let these crooks get you down;their day will come.

    Sorry little grasshopper for your loss. You can't blame the sheriffs on this. You and them have no leads therefore all they can do is look at the local pawnshops.

    It was stolen from your storage unit? As in a gated storage unit?

    When I first posted I didn't realize you were in Wichita because my blackberry doesn't show any of that. What are you doing about getting your lawns done? Are they like pretty much in one area or spread out all over Wichita?
