    Thanks for the update. I hate the truck was torn up. They still have not found the guy yet? It would be great if you could catch up with him before the police :angry: :hammerhead:.

    that's sad that someone gets that desperate and has to do something that extreme, i am shore you probably would have helped him out if he asked right ? every once in a while one of my guys approaches me and explains that there in a jam and i have never had to turn them away,i will either give them some extra hours working around the shop or just a straight up advance in pay if they need it and have them work it off over the next few weeks . i'm sure your a reasonable business man and value your employee's, it's sure is sad that someone has to go to an extreme like this, it most likely must have something to do with drugs right? for him to use his own name at the pawn shop it must have been related to drugs, not to mention he defiantly didn't't get much for the equipment, because a pawn shop will only give you a quarter to a third of the value at the most. i had a friend who's employee pawned a brand new shindiawa 630 back pack (one week old) and a fairly new shindiawa P260 power broom and only got one hundred bucks for the two. try to get the guy some help after you kick his a**
