    Hats off to the Pinellas Park police and the Pinellas County Sheriff! This morning I got a call from the police to come down and reclaim my equipment. Reclaimed all but 2 pieces. Made my day!:clapping:

    Good to hear! Was it all handheld stuff or what?

    I've spent the last few winters, for a week to 10 days at a shot, in st. pete. Drove all over down there, learned the area pretty well, sorta, lol. Thinking about actually driving down there this janurary (yeah crazy drive from here!) My step-bro lives in Tampa now though... Maybe you could put me to work for a couple days, haha. I know things aren't looking too good down there green-wise though!

    Congratulations on getting your stuff back. Did they recover it from a pawn shop, or from the thief?

    They found it during a search of a house along with a bunch of laptops, guns, etc.

    All of the handhelds/blowers that have been stolen from me over the years have been too, they've also been painted differently, just means they can't sell it at a pawn shop. So, if that stuff is stolen, you probably won't see it again.
