    The local Sheriff's office has been investigating this individual for somethime after a rash of lawn equipement thefts...well after going to an a** load of pawn shops (keep your serial #'s in a safe place) and recovering alot of trimmer and lawn mowers, then a raid on his house. More, lawn mowers, trimmers, generators and two pit bulls with puppies locked in a shed w/ 100 degree south La. heat and no water or food was also found. HE IS STILL IN JAIL WHILE MORE OF THE CASE IS BEING PUT TOGETHER. In all, two truck loads were recovered.

    After reading these threads it makes me sick to know that others get joy out of killing someones lively hood and a means of feeding his/her family.

    That is great. Had 2 brand new blowers stolen from a Lowe's lot, but Lowe's would not allow us to review the video. Sounds fishy.

    Tell them you are going to call the cops, and if that doesn't work call the regional manager.

    No not really fishy. I had similar experience. All the police have to do is request to see the video and they can view it. Most business' with security cameras will not just give anyone access.
