    2 - BR420 Magnums Stihl Back Pack Blower (Serial # 361319366)
    1 - BG65 Stihl Hand Held Blower
    2 - Echo SMR210 String Trimmers with Edgit Disks

    This morning between 10:55-11:05am our enclosed trailer was broken into, on site, at a complex located in Deerfield, IL. The ramp gate had a pad lock (locked) and the side door built in door lock was also locked. 2 employees where on the other side of the complex mowing and picking up leaves (they also had the truck only with them) while one was within site of the trailer. That employee turned a corner to mow a small section (about 10 minutes to mow), came back around the corner, they (the thieves) had pried the side door open, breaking the lock, and had taken the above equipment. Back pack was on the floor, hand held and trimmers where pinned to the walls in their racks. Funny thing is they left the two new Tanaka hedge trimmers and all the other expensive small tools. Lucky 1 employee had a blower on his back still.

    If anyone comes across the units on ebay, craigslist, etc please let me know asap. I will also post the remaining serial #'s when I dig them out of the folders tonight.

    Thanks guys.

    Just a tip, make sure you make a police report, even though you may assume the police wont give a ****, the local police departments recieve lists of all items bought by pawnshops in the area weekly and stolen items are often recovered in this manner (some of my stuff included). Cash converters in Hoffman Estates had my stolen stuff last year.
