    Man, you know you have had a long day when your guys call and say Dude pulled up in a ford fusion, got out of the car, pulled a gun and took off with 2) BR 550 blowers!!!! Is it really Worth it?

    It is interesting that whenever this happens to someone other than you and it's your stuff involved, they never get any license plates.
    Why is that, I wonder?

    Oh, I forgot to mention, a Ford Fusion is a 2006 car, it just came out so likely it was advertised heavily, there are no older models and they run around 20k+...

    Sure seems awful strange, a thief in a brand-new hybrid (out of all things), and of course, the nicest Bp's and yes, he had a gun.

    p.s.: If it were me, I'd call the police and have them interrogate my suspects.

    I wish the For Fusion was a Hybrid. lol

    But thats messed up. Can you trust your employees? I mean would they stage something like this? Time to do some investigating.

    Gun point seems a bit extreme.That would make it a case of armed robbery, in place of a simple theft.

    Wow, I would definintly check into that a little more. Like 6'3" said that would armed robbery over two blowers. I guess people put guns in other people's faces for less though...

    IMO, if there actually was a guy with a gun etc already pointed then wouldnt he take more than two blowers? Did you not have hedge trimmers, chain saws or anything else of value that would fit into a fusion? Seems strange to me. Lot of work for a pawn shop price of 500 bucks...
