    I was parked in a church parking lot, I had a back pack blower, hand blower, and a trimmer stolen right out of my truck. This is the first time I have had anything stolen, I have been in the business for 3 yrs.

    THIS IS A WARNING !!!!!!!! Keep an eye on your stuff, no matter where you are.

    Maybe the thugs were on there way to repent, but changed their mind in the parking lot.

    Or maybe someone didn't have any money to put in the offering basket. so they thought "Hey I can sell these, the lord won't mind ifI'm doing it for church.:confused:

    Theft cost retailers 10s of billions of $$ per year(in which btw they pass the cost along to us) They steal in the midst of tight security. I don't see how anybody can sit their equipment out in the open on side of the road(or in any parking lot) and be supprised when somebody steals it:dizzy:
