    my dad got a motorcycle of his stolen and then 2 years after the theft the police called him down and it didnt look at all like his anymore, they asked if he could identify it and he did some wiring work under the headlight and he said there should be a piece of red tape, and sure enough there was.

    man, sorry to hear that. And I would absolutely bash the police for not doing anything like usual. Im sure they have so much other things to do rather than look for 150K worth of equipment. I know theres not much to do in these cases, but they can at least act like cops and try to investigate it. But in all seriosuness, you cant count on the police for anything, if you want results you will have to put in the legwork and advertise the hell out of your reward locally. Pretty ignorant to say, "oh its your fault that it got stolen if you didnt have insurance while you were off fighting for this shittty countries freedom!" IMO. I agree that the cops just said "screw it" as soon as you left, since they werent being pushed to do anything, they figured they didnt need to lift a finger. And someone asks why people are always bashing the police? ha your best bet is a private detective, some1 who doesnt work for the gov. and takes your case seriously. Best of luck, and who knows....maybe the theives waited for a couple years to sell em off until the heat died down, keep an eye out on craigslist

    Just for **** and giggles, this is an old post but the equipment is still missing. Who knows. It's worth a bump.

    There was a gang arrested a few years back in Conway SC and charged with stolen ATVs, lawn equipment and cars. I was hoping yours was recovered during this bust. Several sleaze balls went down that day.

    Sad. Its hard enough to gather enough cash to get nice equipment to continue to grow. Just to have it stolen... There's a special place in hell for them.
